2008 World Series: Team PokerStars Pro back in action

At the PokerStars Burlesque Party last night, Joe Hachem greeted the crowd and took some time to recognize the Team PokerStars Pros who made it to Day 2. Hachem's speech was great, but when most people were waiting to watch Dita Von Teese shake what her mama gave her, Team PokerStars Pro's success made for a longer-than-expected talk.

Twelve of the Team PokerStars Pros made it to Day 2. Five of those players are in action at this hour. Barry Greenstein, Noah Boeken, John Duthie, Vicky Coren, and Vanessa Rousso are all competing in Day 2A. Midway through the day, all five remain in contention.

The players are in the middle of a 40-minute color-up break right now, so what better time to check in on how the five are faring today?


John Duthie -- 65,000


Vanessa Rousso -- 48,000


Victoria Coren -- 28,000


Noah Boeken -- 35,000


Barry Greenstein -- 15,000

If that weren't enough, how about an update from Kara Scott. She has more than 100,000 chips but doesn't play until tomorrow. So for her, it's a day at the pool
