When I got back from reporting the Levi hand, Seidel was gone.

We're now down to 40 players. David Levi got it all in with split kings, only to run into rolled up 4's. The salt in the wound came on fourth street when his opponent made quads.

Down to 42 players now. John Hennigan and Steve Zolotow played short stacks well for a long time, but couldn't find any traction, and they are out.

Well we're down to 45 players and we lost Carlos Mortensen.
The two players that appear to have the largest stacks right now are John Phan and Denmark's Jan Sorensen. I've really enjoyed watching Jan's game. And I thinking that this native of Hans Christian Andersen's (his 200th birthday anniversary is this year) home town is aiming for a fairy tale ending.

First hand back from the break and Doyle catches a wheel, only to lose to and ace high straight. So Doyle is out. But all-in-all, not a bad day for the Brusons.

The players are taking a quick break after level 7. Only one more level to play tonight. And we're down to just under 50 players.
We lost Andy Bloch and Phyllis Meyers this past level.
Thursday, 23rd of June 2005 10:56 PM
About 60 players left.
Kimberly Bye, Eskimo Clark, Paul Darden and Peter Costa have exited the field.
And John Phan is holding on to his large stack.
This is going to be a televised event, which means it will be a three day event. They will stop the play tonight at level 8.

Garry Bush and Paul Sexton head to the rail.

Gavin Smith ran into Steve Zolotow, so it's off to Chinese Poker for Gavin
Also on the rail are Al Boston, Kiril Gerasimov, and Cyndy Violette
There are 79 players left...still a ways from the money

Dinner break. Play will resume at 8:45 pm
I just saw John Phan win another big threeway pot with trip 2's.
And it dawned that it's been a long time since I spotted David Oppenheimm or Humberto Brenes for awhile...

Down to 102:
Paul Darden's death was greatly exaggerated - he just was up moving to a new table. Phew. Thought I gave him the whammy.
John Phan took out both Cherri Thomas and Tony "The Lizard" Bloom

We're down to about 110 players and the stack swings are getting big:
Paul Darden (my bad - I cursed him with the "comfort" hot seat)
Thursday, 23rd of June 2005 05:40 PM
We're down to about 135 players.
More among the missing:
Can Kim Hua
Some people starting to build a comfortable stack:
Yevgeny Kafelnikov (the former tennis pro just missed the final table in the $1500 stud event)
Thursday, 23rd of June 2005 05:03 PM
People who are missing from the field:
Marcel Luske (alas, no more serenades)
Ted Forrest (It's always hard to tell with him, as he pops out of his seat every few minutes. But I think this time it's real:)

This is a little more complete player list. We're getting into the thick of now, so I'll probably start to try to pick up some preliminary stack information:
Thursday, 23rd of June 2005 02:06 PM
OK. we just had our first break. And I noticed a few playerless stacks now had players as
joined the field. Other players I noticed this time through were:
Tony “The Lizard” Bloom
Thursday, 23rd of June 2005 01:25 PM
Some more names I picked up along the way:
Thursday, 23rd of June 2005 12:52 PM
A quick pass through the room yileded these names, although there have been some late comers, table jockeying and another table added - so I'll take another pass in minute:

Hey y'all, this is Amy. And while I'm an omaholic, I'm also a sucker for stud. So I beat the team to the Rio to cover this one.
