Early departures and notes

Things are moving a little too quickly at this hour. We may have to start doing quick updates here until things slow down a bit.

Briefly:

* 2003 WSOP champ Chris Moneymaker has been eliminated. He started the day with a short stack and the stack never grew.

* WPT PokerStars Caribbean Adventure champion John Gale has been eliminated. Shortstacked, Gale moved in with A8 and ran into a pocket pair that made a straight.

* Full chip counts from the end of Day 1 will be out soon.

* Greg Raymer, despite rumors to the contrary, is still alive and doing just fine in chips.
