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

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

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.
