i wonder how long it will take to drop 300 people from the tournament on day 2b? Guess you can estimate how many people drop on day 2a beginning with level 6 but it's messed up they have been so disorganized...it's their signature event and the uncertainty of everything the last few days is more than disappointing.
With a call, then a raise and a cold call in front of him, Josh Arieh decided a squeeze was in order to pick up the dead money in the pot. He made it 4,200 to go and got one fold before the original aggressor decided to re-raise once again and moved all in for an additional 11,500.
Another fold and the action was back with Arieh. With around 85,000 chips in front of him, Arieh considered gambling but made a disciplined fold, flashing A K
Yeah this was obv reported incorrectly- I was at the table, the dude wasnt all in- he 4bet to 11,500 but had another 20k behind. Arieh and the same player had gotten AIPF an orbit or so before when the other player had ~50 BBs and they both had AKo and ended up chopping, (he doubled up shortly thereafter before this hand came up so now he had over 100 BBs)

Yes, that says it all after today's debacle.
There will be 10-handed play afterall, and a 301st table needing to be dug out of storage. Maybe those fortunate 8 will get to play on the Wheel of Fortune Big Wheel for the first 15 or so minutes.
They have 312 tables (sticking people in the poker room and Buzios), because ALMOST everyone playing yesterday was at a nine-handed table.
The following got seated in a 10 seat:
Jeppe Nielsen Amazon Green 143/10
Joe Reitman Amazon Green 144/10
Marco Bertaccini Amazon Green 145/10
Dale Poynter Amazon Green 146/10
Oh, so they could have accommodated 3,120 entrants by playing 10-handed instead of just 3,000, after ending Day 1d 109 players over the this morning's - not initial cap, as that was the 3,000 - secondary cap of 2,700?
