There is somwhere where you could see a stream or record from this game online??

The action should be really interesting with haxton, mercier and tran at the same table Smile

It's been a while since I've heard anything out of Glantz, but maybe it's due to the lack of coverage in some case. I don't recall seeing his name appear in any of the WSOP events, but maybe I missed it. It would be nice to watch this battle to the end.
