Yeah I saw a lot of hands on pokernews yesterday where guys were punting 100 bb plus with kings and aces against a set.

I'd say around 6000. Unless the lower number for day 1a just means that there is a mass awareness to avoid playing on day 1a. Is 1992 the final number for day 1b?

With over 2k entries today, 7k definitely in reach. I'll take the over.

More reasons to LOL anybody who says poker is dying.

Dan Shak lost 99% of his stack on the FOURTH hand AK<AA

People are putting in 300bbs with AK preflop. Poker is dead. Yup.

Just spotted this on PN, you would think they might remember a bit more about one of the most memorable hands ever:

Quote:
Four years ago, Matt Affleck suffered one of the worst beats you can imagine near the bubble of the World Series of Poker Main Event final table bubble. After an inconsequential flop, Affleck was all in and at risk with pocket aces against the pocket jacks of Jonathan Duhamel, and the eventual champion spiked a jack to take a massive chip lead.

Great spot.

Pokernews got his name wrong (!), he's Sarkis Arkopyan, they have him as the phonetically similar 'Sarkis Hakobian'.

Any excuse:

No way that the 10m first place is bringing people out in droves. If you have 10k laying around, you were playing the main event. Doesn't matter if first was 8.5 or 12 million
Couldn't agree more

I think you're agreeing with his second paragraph, which I agree with, but his first paragraph is wrong on 1 count - it will beat last years attendance for sure, and it's got a real shot at beating 7k and may become the biggest ME since 2006.

Quads vs. Nut Full House
Posted 1 minute ago Happy_Freaked • Level 1: 50-100, 0 ante SHARE
On one of the first hands of the day Billy Chattaway just managed to secure himself a double up.

The hand was extraordinary and the dealer's announcement, "All in and a call!" made a big crowd of people rush over to table 374 in the orange section.

The board showed {A-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{A-Spades} while Chattaway's {4-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} were tabled face up.

"He had ace-king," another player informed us.

Chattway was all in on the river for 27,025 and this huge hand puts his ahead of the entire field after just 25 minutes of play.
