WSOP Event #2: Dinner break
I have been remiss as a blogger can be. All of this talk today of the thousands of people playing in the first open event, and not one--not one!--mention of Team PokerStars' Isabelle Mercier.
As it turns out, the lovely poker pro has been in a bit of a disguise today. She's been heard to lament, "Nobody recognizes me."
In other news, the official numbers are in and they are big. The total number of runners in Event #2 of the WSOP: 2776. The top 270 players will get paid.
Confirmed to still be alive in today's event: Isabelle "No Mercy" Mercier, Greg "Fossilman" Raymer, Micon, Jason "strassa2" Strasser, and a few others who have yet to give up their true identities.
A little more than 450 players remain. Players are currently on a dinner break and will resume play shortly after 8pm.
We'll be back then, too.
