One hell of a rollercoaster for these guys left in it.

It's there for anyone to take down really with a bit of luck. At least it won't be finished in november...

I first read the list of notables who made it through the day and only recognize half of them. Then i read the listo f famous who didn’t survived and my chin just fel off: Ivey, Blom, Gus Hansen… and more, even other winners from recente years! Poker at WSOP is being played each time better, things are getting real tough, one needs true skills to get fara t WSOP. The one who wins this will have, besides the bracelet and the Money prize, the fame of passing through a field that included all of these great names, which will turn the victory to something even more notable.
