Feels like groundhog day here at the WSOP today, all the reporters are over writing up day one information and nothing exciting is happening. Well Hellmuth did make his standard entrance to the Main Event today, with some minor technical difficulties. *Helmuth Fights Way Into Amazon Room* What would a WSOP Main Event be without Phil Helmuth making some type of grand entrance, or cry for attention (you be the call). This year was no different from the years past, with him actually having a stage pulled up to the entrance of the conference center here at the Rio for a brief show before he finally arrived.

Day 29 at the 2010 WSOP was a relative uneventful one. Two final tables are underway with the HORSE World Championship and the Event #42 $1,500 NL playing to completion tonight. The Mixed Holdem Event is playing to a final table while the $5,000 PLO Hi-Lo and the Event #45 $1,500 NL are in Day 1 action. *Smith and Pilgirm Poised to Make Mixed Holdem Final* The $2,500 Mixed Holdem Event is down to just 11 players and unless they make a monumental blunder and bust out early, both Gavin Smith and Dwyte Pilgrim will make the final table of this event.
