Collins 430x286
The November Nine are in the second half of their dinner break and we are down to just four players left. The other half of my heads-up match is out of it, leaving me with just Matt Giannetti left to make it to the final three. Phil Collins got his last 19 million into the middle after three bet shoving with Ad-7d. Pius Heinz woke up with nines and made the call.

Doyle Day 1a 319x300
The 2011 WSOP Main Event officially kicked off on Thursday and contrary to his statement made on Twitter during the $50,000 Poker Player's Championship, Doyle was indeed in this one. In fact, Doyle even gave the customary "Shuffle Up and Deal" call to kick off the Main Event. How did this come to fruition? Apparently Dewey Tomko is the person that convinced him to play.  Doyle said on Twitter yesterday: TexDolly Stop it.

Yueqi Zhu earlier today was disqualified from Event #53 of the World Series of Poker.   The event is the $1,500 Limit Holdem Shootout and each table during a round is played to a winner.   In Round 1 action yesterday, Zhu was heads-up on his table and his opponent was down to 6,000 in chips.   Zhu was not feeling well and a deal was struck between the two resulting in the player folding until Zhu was the winner.

The 2010 World Series of Poker was posted briefly online earlier in the day and then taken down. If you go over to 2+2 forums, you can take a look at what was posted. Odds are that the schedule is nowhere near accurate, but it gives you a good idea of what to expect. In an equally as interesting article in the Las Vegas Sun, Seth Palansky, the talking head of the WSOP, gave some insight into next year’s WSOP.
