2011 WSOP Main Event: 22 players through to Day 8!

Posted on 19 July 2011 by "T".

After a very long, intensive and exciting day of play we're now down to only 22 players. These 22 players will now get some well-needed rest before they have to return to Rio's poker room and play Day 8 of the Main Event. All the remaining players are guaranteed at least $302,0000 each. 

Just like in the past 7 days, a new player will return with the largest stack to Day 8, Anton Makievskyi. Makievskyi played fantastic poker during Day 7 and managed to accumulate a stack of over 21 million chips. His closest opponent, Eoghan O'Dea, has 19 million chips. Even though these 2 players have a nice lead over the rest of the field it's very hard to say what will happen during Day 8. One thing is for sure though - 9 players will make it to the final table in November - 8 of them will become dollar millionaires.

Looks like Phil Colins is giving all of his talent this game. Is music talent can be a good way of distraction for his oponents but, hey, each one fights with the arms he has, so, if thats a goodwill, let him use it. "Hey, isn't this the song writer and singer? I think i know some of his musics", and he says "i bet you know that: bye, bye, miss american pie.." and the other says "is that yours???". Phil answers "no, but you are saying bye,bye, i just put you out of this game!" Big Smile

He's not the Phil Colins the singer. He’s actually Philip David Michael Collins.”
As well as his famous name, Phil Collins has also been asserting himself on the poker world since taking up the game around six years ago.
At the time Phil Collins was studying business at the University of South Carolina. He was also studying poker books and becoming more adept at poker, while playing $5 and $10 cash games with friends
