Strangely enough, Bellagio has also decided to allow players to buy in during day two of the tournament. This is the first time I've ever seen this in any live tournament.
Players will start with a full starting stack of 60k, and may register up to the end of level 8 (600/1200), which will be the third level of play tomorrow.
I've also begun updating from the table on breaks on Twitter ... which I finally caved and decided to join. You can follow me at @MattStoutPoker since @MattStout is taken by some guy who apparently regrets not acting on his dream to be an astronaut ...
Anyway, I had a mediocre table draw in the beginning, but it was probably pretty average considering the field ... not enough soft spots turn out for $15k main events at Bellagio anymore. The players I knew at the table were Hafiz "hafizzle" Khan, Matt Stout
