WSOPE Day 1b - PokerStars versus Full Tilt

WSOPE Day 1b - PokerStars versus Full Tilt

Friday, 24 September 2010

Well, there is always downtime when reports are written and you don’t spot interesting hands or events for a while. I decided to amuse myself by going around the 17 remaining tables and seeing which group of pros – PokerStars or Full Tilt – was doing the best.

Full Tilt first and they have six key players in attendance – Phil Ivey (22,050); Patrik Antonius (30,000 or so); Eli Elezra (about 55,000); Praz Bansi (40,000ish); Mike the Mouth (30,000 plus change) and Gus Hansen (dwindling down to about 14,000). Between the six that’s an average stack of about 32,000.

Team PokerStars have lesser numbers but are doing decidedly better – JP Kelly has what looks to be approaching 90,000 and Daniel Negreanu is down since before dinner but still hovering around the 40,000 mark. Barry Greenstein has about 16,000 and hasn’t had anything to boast about all day; Bertand “ElkY” Grospellier will inevitably win but still only has about 30,000. Between them they boast an average stack of around 41,500.

Full Tilt Poker – 0

PokerStars – 1

I know those statistics mean basically nothing relatively (plus a few of each team are already in Day 2) but hell, at least now you know how some of the best players in the room are doing. Currently we have somewhere between 150 and 160 remaining players... the clock hasn’t quite caught up yet, it’s been saying 162 for a while.
