World Series: Picking up the pieces
He who has not been happy with his World Series of Poker results has one week to correct, otherwise, it's all over until next year. Today begins the last week of bracelet events. There are just a few more opportunities to pick up a bracelet, or, if you're still looking, a cash.
The Rio's Amazon Room is overflowing with the 2,800 people who showed up to play the last low buy-in event of the year. Elsewhere, scads of Team PokerStars Pros are are in Day 2 of either the $1,500 Stud-8 tournament or the $3,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold'em event. Any one of them could come out of today with a final table bid.
What we hope to put to rest is Sunday's disappointing end. A day that began with such promise ended with about the worst possible results.
For a complete recap of the day, here's one last look from the PokerStars Video Blog team.
