No email from Roy Brindley taking my over/under of 60 for todays H.O.R.S.E (Holdem, Omaha, Razz, Stud and Eight or better). The event attracted 144 entries and we did not lose a player by dinner. By the end of play we still have lost less than 20. The H.O.R.S.E donkeys include Fischman, Marcel Luske and Hasan Habib.

It looks like Full Tilt v Doyles Room out there. Doyles Room has an experienced team consisting of Doyle+Todd Brunson, Cyndy Violette, Eli Elezra,Sam Grissle, Tom Franklin, David Levi, Mike Caro, Hoyt Corkins, Dewey+Derek Tomko, Minh Ly, Chau Giang, Mel Judah, Men Nguyen + Max Pescatori.

Tony Bloom, Ram Vaswani + Devilfish are the only British players. Devilfish survived day 1 with 22k in chips and the Lizard is one of the shortstacks .Ram "crazy horse" is mid pack.

Harry Demetriou is to have lunch with Jeffrey Pollack (vice president of sports and entertainment marketing for Harrah's Operating Company, Inc. and commissioner of the World Series of Poker) of Harrahs after voicing his opinion, on internet forums, about the poor state of affairs at the WSOP.

Harry is disgusted with the following:
  • Poker players paying $109 for rooms when slot players are being offered $40 rooms.
  • $2k juice in HORSE event.
  • Harrahs have made over $100m from Party Poker + Miller Lite for ads on all tournament tables plus another $1- $1.6m from Card Player/Full Tilt for exclusive coverage.
  • None of this money is returned to the players.
  • If a player wants a photograph of himself at the final table he has to buy it from a Harrahs owned company.
  • Harrahs witholding winnings from overseas players. Wheras the Bellagio has always issued ITIN (An Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is a tax processing number issued by the Internal Revenue Service, ITINs are for federal tax reporting only) to players.
  • Players are noticing decks being re used and cards having marks on them.

Victor Ramdin + Joe Cassidy both playing in Full Tilt logo are the end of Day1 chip leaders .First prize is $1.7m second a little over $1m .
