WSOP: Crazy day at the Rio

There are a lot of cliches about raining cats and dogs, when it rains it pours, blame it on the rain, etc. I could use them all to talk about the insanity that is just about to begin here at the Rio. There is simply too much going on and keeping it all straight is going to be a challenge. Wil is playing today, so I'm going to be endeavoring to keep track of it all. What are we talking about today?

  • Joe Hachem and Premier make WSOP final table--This is going to be the biggest event of the day. It kicks off at 2pm (or shortly there after, as ESPN sometimes takes a little longer to get rolling).

  • Team PokerStars' Vanessa Rousso will be playing in Day 2 of WSOP Event #30, a big $5,000 shorthanded NL Hold'em affair. We'll keep en eye on her as the afternoon progresses.

  • Today is also the last of the preliminary events that PokerStars players were able to use their W$ to get into. As such, we have quite a big field of players in today's $2,000 NL Hold'em event.
