Just wanted to get something up to let everyone know that we are good to go for this Friday.
Also wanted to get a shameless plug in for the main event (2008 WSOP Event #54, $10,000 Buy In No Limit Hold Em’ World Championship – Main Event). I’ve been following the action religiously through the blogs on http://www.wsop.com/, and there has been some amazing action. The remaining 666 players are in the money as of just a couple of minutes ago. The chip leader is over $1 million chips (Some guy named Jeremiah Smith) and there are several notable players still in the field:
Former Champs, Phil Hellmuth and Johnny Chan are very healthy and sitting well over 300k. They are the only former winners of this event that are still alive.
Other notable players still alive and in the money include, Allen Cunningham, Mike Matusow, and Men “The Master” Nguyen. Hevan “Rainkahn” Kahn, Gus Hansen, and Jeff Madsen are also still rolling. It’s been an amazing main event so far, and it looms only bigger and better in the coming days.
