Its nice to see that these tournaments are still drawing large entries. Scott Seiver catches my eye as a big name to watch but there is a long way to go and a lot of poker to be played

Damn Greenstein got knocked out , he is a good player , used to watch him in live events, I love how calm he is when he is playing and when he try to laughs he always looks serious, but he is a great poker player and being around for a long time. Hope he stays here, fun to watch how he does not show emotion at the table!

Phil Laak is the most known name i see, and he is among the biggest stacks, that may be a problem for less known players who are risking to get a place on the prizes.

The WPT was one of the interesting big tourney series and over 700 Player in this tourney are really a lot. Only the WSOP and the EPT are bigger and this 3 tourney series are the best in the moment. And we can see a lot of new great Players on tv.
