Heads-up for the Wizzin!

by , Jun 5, 2007 | 10:03 pm

Annie Duke is out. Tom is still in. And so is “Omaha Ed” Tonnellier. Tom has maintained the chip lead since Day 1, but it’s uncomfortably tight right now with Tom just below 1 million in chips, and Omaha Ed just under 700k.

ESPN did decide against making this match-up the premier TV event of the day … opting instead for Gavin Smith vs. Mike Spegal in the $1,500 Pot Limit Hold’em event, with Gavin trying tocome back from a 2-1 chip disadvantage.

The Main TV Table

Meanwhile, in the Poker SuperStructure wind tent, Fresh Princess is sitting with a slightly above-average stack heading into the tail end of Day 1 in $1,500 Omaha Hi Lo. She’s got Minneapolis Jim Meehan on tilt … not because she referred to him as “Poker Jack Meehan or Something,” but because she apparently called out of turn, enticing some sort of 400 chip mistake from Meehan that garnered zero sympathy from a crusty, fire-red-haired lady dealer.
