FLop arrives. Q 9 5 all hearts. Cheng pushed all in. Chan called. Chan had a pocket pair of tens and Cheng the mighty aces. They stayed boss to take out Johnny Chan two minutes before the day was finished.

We are down to about 35 players. The last hand was just played. It will take a while to get the chips bagged and seats assigned. I took my jump drive to Scott with Caesars. I begged him to please load up the info for me so I can get it to my readers. Cross your fingers. They dont even have the internet.

Beth Shak says hi to her adorable kids. Hot off the press, Mom got tangled up with John D'Agostino. He pushed all in and stared your Mom down saying "you better not call me" and she said "Im not afraid of you" and called. He showed the Q J and Beth the A J. The ace was golden and Mom sent John D'Agostino packin'. By the way kids, Dad is holding his own as well.
Johnny Bax AKA Cliff Josephy takes out Andy Bloch when his KQ took Andy's QJ. The board was scary, the KQJ. Tough luck for Andy and sweet lovin' for Cliff.
Adam Green has split the scene.

Russ Salzer was in the small blind, raised to 5K and around to the button who had limped, he pushed all in. That was Ed "EBJ" Jordan. It was a long time but Russ finally decided to call with all his chips. Ed showed the K K . Russ was stunned and turned over the K A . The flop brought the A K Q and the case king made a set for Ed. Russ had two pair and needed sweet lovin' to stay alive. The 4 and 6 followed and we lose Russ. I believe Ed "EBJ" Jordan has taken the chip lead.

Joey was in the big blind and preflop there were 6 players. Family pot! Joey had the A 4 . The flop came the A A J. Joey moved all in as he was sitting pretty short. He got one caller. That caller held the A T and out kicked the "black cat". Joey "black cat" Lopes is out with his three aces.

A big hand just took lots of chippage off Todd Terry. He had amassed a huge stack when he got involved in the hand with short stack Lou Esposito and medium stack Ed " EBJ" Jordan. Lou had the QQ, Todd the J 9 and Ed the K J. The flop was the X Q T. After that, lots of betting ensued and we had Lou all in with a side between Todd and Ed. The Turn brought the A and more betting took place. Another T hit the river giving Lou the boat for the main pot and Ed the monster side pot for the bigger straight. Todd is still alive, but took a spanking on that hand.
Mike Sica took his pocket queens to the bank and ran smack dab into pocket aces held by Matt Glantz. Mike goes home after a rough trip here at Caesars. Poker is so weird. When lady luck has checked out, it just doesnt matter what you get, the doomsayer comes visiting. See ya next trip Mike!

Johnny Chan is here selling his book...but he is also here beefin' it up it seems.....and it isnt even dinner time yet!
Tuesday, 28th of March 2006 03:25 PM
Players take a break and we move to level 3 with 100 / 200 blinds.
Tony Licastro just couldnt get his game working today. He is finished early.

They are breaking a table now. Down to 81 players. Steve Zolotow is out. Johnny Chan crippled him early on and he never recovered.
Chris Reslock flopped a set of sevens and had a redraw for a straight. He played his opponent like a fiddle. Ben Bianco stayed with him all the way to the river, spending all his chips on a pair of pocket queens. With only a two outter, he spiked the queen on the river, stood and screamed "YES YES.....I knocked out the best!" Chris Reslock goes home first in todays event. He retires to the massage station.
It is official. We had a booming 99 players join the event today. Payout schedule on its way.

Level 2 has just begun. 50 / 100 blinds.
Beth Shak is the only woman in the event today.
The room is filling and we are ready to start. I have a few players I plan to follow. Gonna go out now and peruse the room for stars.
As usual, at least over here on the east coast, the field is small. I wish I had a job with the WSOP in marketing and or tournament management. Sheesh......Looks like the number is going to hover right around 100 players give or take.
