for the Brits today although Julian Gardner played his usual "A" game. He
finished third,which was worth $172,427, when his straight lost to a flush.
Jeff Madsen ($661k) won with Paul Sheng second for $330,485.
Shipley left in the first five minutes with Jh7h v JJ. Ninth place was worth
Peter Costa, featured yesterday, made tomorrows final table. If
you think Peter might be a Yankee now, think again. His Scouse accent is as
thick as ever. I think thats why he always talks with me on breaks. No one else
Another friend and really nice guy joining Peter at the
table, Thor Hansen another transplanted European.
That man Hellmuth will
be there also. What a WSOP he is having and he broke a record today for WSOP
Harry Demetriou was escorted from the room by security earlier
after complaining about the shoot out set up. Harrahs stated 100 people will
qualify for Day 2. The tables were set up 9 handed. Less than 600 players
entered so Harrahs played 100 tables six handed. Seems fair to me but Harry
expected to play nine handed and demanded to discuss matters with someone
higher than the floor people, who are dealers in suits to be honest.
The DiS (Dealers in Suits) didn't like his attitude so security
escorted him from the room. He later received a refund. (Don't worry harry, the
British are coming and we'll make them drink tea.- Ed.)
for Peter or Thor later.
