WSOP 2014: Summer vacation status for the Red Spades

For most pro poker players, the WSOP is summer camp, a chance to spend up to seven weeks in a curious and dangerous land with some of their closest friends. They can all arrive whenever they want, but none of them have a choice about when they are going to leave.

Today we have our eye on the people from PokerStars. Today's a today when many will be packing their bags with clothes instead of chips. Nevertheless, there are some rising stars who are looking good to make Day 3.

As we head toward the dinner break, here are some vacation photos from our crack photographer Joe Giron of Poker Photo Archive.

Today we've also said goodbye and "see ya next summer" to Jan Heitmann, George Danzer, Vanessa Selbst, and Lex Veldhuis.

The surviving players are now out on a 90-minute dinner break.
