More HORSES Put Out to Pasture

by , Jun 29, 2008 | 1:07 am

Since returning from dinner break, the players in the $50K HORSE have been in slow motion, barely trotting here. So much is on the line, so I don’t blame them… The railbirds aren’t getting tired, though. They’re still packed in there like wide-eyed sardines, snapping photos and hoping to get a wink or a nod from a pro. Entertaining to watch…for a few minutes at a time.

In the past three hours, only two players have busted.

13th place: Daniel Negreanu – $142,080
If Daniel had won this tournament, the prize money would have catapulted him into the position of top tournament money earner of all time, surpassing Jamie Gold. Well, that ain’t happenin’ in this tournament, sad to say.

12th place: Phil Ivey – $159,840
Not the most entertaining player at the table, but definitely a fan favorite and one of the best out there. Much to the dismay of the standing-room audience, he had to nod goodbye.

Erick Lindgren has jumped out to a dominating lead here, as it stands at 1am. He has 3.25 million, and the next closest stack belongs to Scotty Nguyen with 2.7 million. I smell a good final table. (And I smell a poker player who needs a shower, but that’s not relevant here.)

UPDATE:
11th place: David Bach – $159,840
10th place: Raymond Davis – $177,600
9th place: Ralph Perry – $177,600
Final table set! Seat assignments and accurate chip counts to be posted when announced…
