The 2010 WSOP on ESPN has Officially Kicked Off

Michael Mizrachi Wins1
So for the first time in probably three years, I watched a first run episode of the 2010 World Series of Poker on ESPN.  Tonight was the Poker Player's Championship episodes where Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi took down his first every WSOP bracelet. I won't lie.   The main reason I watched was to see if they got some shots of me around the Rio.

WSOP Main Event Day 6 Closing Update - Breezes, Celebration, and More....

Only 78 players have survived Day 6 to guarantee themselves at least $94,942. Today we saw the year of the woman become no more, one more Mizrachi brother go down and a new chip color. *Going Out on a Breeze* Coming into the day Breeze Zuckerman had 738k and at one point she had peaked to just over 1 million. For the majority of the day she was sitting on the Jack Links feature table and that is where she was crippled.

WSOP Main Event Day 6 Update - Chan Gone, Bigger Stacks

Day 6 has begun but not with a few fireworks. What will the day have in store for us? We started the day with 205 players left in the field, before the end of the day we will be under 100. Who will moving up the chip counts and who will be moving on with their lives? We have no clue what the schedule has in line for us today, could be 5 full levels, could play 4. Heck we could even stop sometime in the middle of the 3rd one if bustouts happen too fast.

WSOP Main Event Day 5 Update - Ladies, Johnny, and The Brothers

Only 7. 8% of the original 7,319 players that started the Main Event this year have survived the first four days of play - 574 for those of you that care to not do the math. Jack Effel has estimated that we will lose at least half of that today and have around 275 players left after the four levels have been finished. We will be here all day to gather up the stories of the day.

Day 3 is in the books and Day 4 is upon us. There's a quiet buzz going in the Amazon room and a faint whisper in the Pavilion room (only 16 tables started the day over there) about the money bubble. *Bubble Day* It's fully expected that today we will have the money bubble bust for the Main Event. With 1,203 players starting today the field only has to lose 456 players before the bubble is reached.
