While the final table of the first event is playing out, there's Doyle Brunson, John Juanda and Chad Brown all playing under the stairs. Most bizarre.
We've not lost anyone so far, which is hardly surprising considering how damn good at poker 97.7% of this field is. Early chip leaders include Tony Bloom, Marcus Golser and Phil Ivey, while Layne Flack is obviously suffering from not having Liv on his table as he did in the first event, sporting about 5,100.Erik Seidel has had a sluggish start too, on a few hundred more than Layne, but with the structure being what it is, there is still time for all of the players to work their way into the tournament.We do try not to be partisan in these affairs (see our coverage of the '£1,500 Rail Neil Channing Event'), but when you have as many of the best players in the room as this, it's hard to not to start pulling for your own personal favourite. Doyle is on around 10,000, internet super-aggro wizard Ilari Saharies (that's Ziigmund to you) is in the house, while Phil Hellmuth turned up late again. I wonder if that lad ever got into trouble for that at school?
