So many top pros going home early at this event, I wonder how does the smaller players who are still running are feeling at this moment. They may feel they have more chances to get to higher places because they don’t have that known tough competition ahead, but those who eliminated them must have a great sensation of happiness invading them, that may make them feel unbeatable and help them through the rest of the tourney, so better watch out.

Most of the eliminated stars came here just for the show not for the competition,Negreanu been the biggest of all.By the other side your life is harder if everyone is hunting you no matter what
