(Way) Outside the WSOP – (Main Event Day 5)

by , | 6:51 am

After it was decided to play one more level after the dinner break, the tournament staff decided to suspend play with just over 38 minutes remaining in level 19. Two possibilities: Since play started an hour later on Friday, ending it at the same time as the other Main Event days would seem right. Also, there was 21 full tables of 9 players when play was suspended. so that there wasn’t a disadvantage to the other tables.

The leader at the end of day 4 is Jeremy Joseph with over 2.18m in chips, Nikolay Losev is 2nd with 2.11m in chips. 46 players start play today with over 1m in chips, among those players include Brandon Cantu, Shawn Sheikhan, Alex Outhred, Mark Vos, David Benefield, and Gus Hansen and Allen Cunningham. Phil Hellmuth is the final remaining Main Event winner with 581,000 in chips.

Tiffany Michelle, Kara Scott, Minna Ritakorpi, Karen Manfrede, and Lisa Parsons, make up the remaining female players. To see how everyone will be seated today, head to page 2:

Happenings at the WSOP while the 2008-08 WSOP Circuit schedule was announced:

As the Day 2a field is on their dinner break, about 700 remain to play a couple more 2 hour levels before the survivors get the day off and return on Thursday. The current chip leader appears to be Brian Schaedlich, with about 500,000 in chips. With such a large field, exact chip counts are hard to come by, but notable players towards the top include David “Chino” Rheem, Brandon Adams, Keith “The Camel” Hawkins, John Hennigan, Mark Vos, Hasan Habib and Kido Pham. Notables who don’t need to worry about coming back in November: Paul Wasicka, Robert Varkonyi, 2007 ME final tablist Philip Hilm, Greg Mueller and Scotty Nguyen.

I Spy (6/22 Edition)

by , Jun 22, 2008 | 10:02 pm

Line of PokerNews floor reporters following a coordinator to the corner of the Amazon Room for an impromptu meeting. All I caught was, “Okay…” I’m not a good eavesdropper.

Man playing a single-table satellite in a wheelchair. He has no arms, so he is playing – quite proficiently, I might add – with one foot. Impressive!

Players returning from dinner break to the Mixed Hold’em event and literally running to get back in time. Mark Vos came back a few minutes late, and evidently, he had been walking down the hall, drunk, and swept PokerNews reporter Tiffany Michelle over his shoulder. He ran with her toward the Amazon Room, and she’s next to me coughing up a little part of a lung right now.

Beth the Dealer

Men the Master and Mark Vos both seem to have a crush on Beth the dealer. Men offered one of his “Men the Master” hats to her for free, and Mark Vos was upset at the table redraw and having to leave Beth, until he found himself at her table again!
