(Way) Outside the WSOP – (Main Event Day 4)

by , Jul 11, 2008 | 6:59 am

474 players remain when play starts again at 1pm, some happy to have made the money, others hoping for a much bigger prize later this year. Brian Schaedlich, who started day 3 with over 800,000 in chips, ended up with a much smaller stack of 22,000. The leader at the start of play this afternoon appears to be Jeremy Joseph, who will have about 1,470,000 to start play today. Jeremiah Smith, the one time tournament reporter over at, will be in 2nd with 1,300,000. Alan Jaffray, who tried to enter the ladies’ event earlier in the Series, is among the top 10. Other notables include 2008 Aussie Millions winner Alexander Kostritsyn, Dag Martin Mikkelsen, Shawn Sheikhan, Phil Hellmuth, Hoyt Corkins, Mike Matusow, Raja Kattamuri, Johnny Chan and Chad Layne looking to keep their head above water in the killing fields that make up the Amazon Room. Another 5 two-hour levels are scheduled for today, will play start slowing down now, or does the carnage continue unfettered? We’ll know more for certain later this afternoon.

He’s The Man

There was one lone man who attempted to play in the WSOP Ladies event today. Alan Jaffray, whom you might remember from the Event #5 final table last week, bought the dress, accessorized, and was ready to take his seat in the tournament…until Jeffrey Pollack stopped him and asked him to leave in the name of “integrity.”

His account of the situation is written up in my article just posted on PokerWorks.

My favorite quote from Alan: “Eventually they’ll try to deny entry to the wrong person – like, say, a pre-op transsexual woman – and there will be fireworks. When that day comes, I will serve popcorn. (Smile) Until then, I have an amusing story to tell and a new appreciation for accessories and lipstick.”
