Some players, such as Phil Ivey and Nam Le are playing in multiple events at the same time. Nam Le made it deep in two events at once, literally running from one room to the next between hands.
Phil Ivey won two bracelets just over a week apart, Jeffrey Lisandro has won three this year, and countless other big names have gone deep in multiple events.
The question many people are asking now: where's Tom Dwan been?
Dwan has only played in a handful of events so far, cashing in none of them. He hasn't been reported to be playing any high-stakes cash games around town, and hasn't played online since the 19th.
Even though everyone needs time off from time to time, no one figured he'd choose to sit out both the WSOP (tourneys and side action) and his million-dollar Challenge (save one epic session) against Patrik Antonius.
On that note: where's Patrik Antonius been?
Expect an appearance by both at the $50k H.O.R.S.E. today.
