2008 WSOP Day 17: More Hold'em begins

The Man
Will Shankar return to defend his title?

The 2008 World Series of Poker is busting at the seams with No-Limit Hold'em events, and another one gets started today at noon.

This will be Event 29, $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em. Last year it fell as Event 28 in the schedule and saw 827 players sign up to create more than $2 million in prize money.

After three days of play it was Greg Mueller, John Racener, Phil Laak and more.

Many pros are running hot this season, and though there's also a $10,000 World Championship event starting at 5 p.m. today, a good chunk of them may see how far they can get in Event 29 first.

Other action at the felt today includes finals for Event 25, $10,000 World Championship Heads-Up No-Limit, and Event 26, $1,500 Seven-Card Razz. Meanwhile Event 27, another $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em event, and Event 28, $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha w/Rebuys, will continue into their second days of play.
