(Way) Outside the WSOP – (Main Event Day 2b Evening Update)

by , Jul 9, 2008 | 7:40 pm

First, some belated congratulations to the winners of the tournaments that started on Monday. The media tournament was won by Brett Collson of pocketfiveslive.com (he donated his $5,000 prize to the Wounded Warrior Project. The casino employees winner was Jonathan Kotula, who works at the O’Sheas casino on the LV Strip.

Day 2b of the Main Event started with almost 2,400 players looking to play again tomorrow for day 3. The dinner break started a few minutes ago, and about 1,400 players are still in action today as they finally got everyone into the Amazon Room at the Rio. The current leader appears to be Steve Lade, who has about 380,000 in chips. Notables near the top: Day 1c leader Hennig Granstad, Victor Ramdin, David Singer, a much slimmer Thomas “Thunder” Keller, Nenad Medic, Evelyn Ng and Chip Jett. You can follow all the action when they return around 8:45pm Vegas time at the WSOP website here.

More updates later…

    PokerNews shows Raja Kattamuri as the current chip leader. GO DALLAS! As far as I know, Raj still lives and works here.

    Do you by chance have a table number for him? And wow, you actually spelled his name? I thought it was Raj Kasdsalkjdlsajdsjdjdkdjlakjdla

    Sorry can’t find a table number. PN reports that Raj took KK > AA and doubled up to a little over 400k.

    Another Dallas player with alot of chips is Ryan Milisits who lives up in The Colony. He has 158,100. How good do I run that I have a piece of each? Shippppp one time

  5. DanM

    I found him. We’ll have some pics up by morning. He really was running over the table when I saw him. Playing like 80 percent of his hands, and bullying effectively. (Granted, I only watched a grand total of about 8-10 hands, but still.)

    And so wow, if he got that stack by getting lucky in a sitch where he shoulda gone bust … what does that say about how vulnerable even the biggest stacks are?
