2007 World Series: Tourney in a box

You never know what's going to happen around here. For a long while, there was held a great assumption that today's $2,500 Short-Handed No-Limit Final Table would be on the ESPN main stage. Now, that is not to be. Instead, the tournament is being held in what some members of the media have coyly started referring to as The Sequestrium. The big black box of curtains is the hiding place and stage for the semi-live web cast put on by Bluff. Now, while this is great for everyone watching at home, it's not nearly as much fun for those of us watching here who are accustomed to seeing the action as it happens. And, as it happens, we were hoping to watch Terrence Chan play his first final table of the year.

The good part about this is that we'll be able to see the hole cards of the players in the game today. The bad part is, we'll see it all an hour after it happens. If you are the type of person who doesn't like to wait, you should check out WorldSeriesofPoker.com to purchase the live feed.

In fact, it's all happening as we speak...or so we are led to believe. You never really know what's happening in the black box.
