WSOP Main Event: Shorthaul

wsop2009_thn.gifIt may be the first time in World Series history that players had a problem eating on their dinner break because the restaurants hadn't started seating yet. The tournament directors made a decision this morning to only play four levels. That means the dinner break officially began at 4:30pm.

The good news is that the players won't have to endure long Day 1s and should be ready for bed by 11pm.

Players have now returned from their 90 minute lupper break and are setting in for a shorthaul two levels before breaking until next Tuesday.

While the action may be a bit subdued now, we are assured a raucous time in the coming days. If you need a little adrenaline to get you through the evening, check out this video of our wacky Brazilian team and what they can do with a little car.

STATISTIC OF THE HOUR

An official count of Day 1A players has not yet been officially released, but unconfirmed reports put Day 1A at around 1,100. Word on the street is that registration for the first two days is pretty light, but the final two days should have more than 2,000 players apiece.


QUOTE OF THE HOUR
