2007 World Series: Halfway through Day 1

Today, 07/07/07 was said too be the luckiest day of the century. For a few hundred poker players, that might well be true. For others, it might as well have been Groucho Marx's birthday or Arbor Day. Or something otherwise uneventful, anyway.

Either way, it was a day full of action here at the World Series. It was another 15+ hour day. Among the finishers today, 2005 World Champion Joe Hachem.

Here's a look at what we chased throughout the day:

Day 1B set for the lucky -- Luckiest day in a century

Duthie's on Tap and Running Hot -- EPT creator starts strong

Alan Smurfit's New Card Protector -- The best card protector a card player can have

Doing it for real -- Fantasy Land at the World Series

Vamooooooo Brazil -- Brazil invades World Series

His face rings a bell -- Blogger encounters nemesis doing well in Series

Rob "Vaga_Lion" Akery Aches for the Big Score -- From microstakes to big games

Two writers and a blouse-- Distractions for two writer/players

Un-tilt-- Getting happy at the World Series

A Big Move from "NVme5" and "gunning4you" -- PokerStars qualifiers play different styles

Adam takes on the big boys -- Wading through the pros

Day 1 resumes...again...on Sunday with Flight C. More than 1,600 players are scheduled to face off in the penultimate flight of Day 1. We'll have an accounting of chip counts once they are released.
