In true L.A. fashion, play began bright and early at 2 p.m. with the help of a little caffeine and the promise of the action that only a $10,000 buy-in event can offer. The field of 219 was a little on the thin side for a Los Angeles Max Pescatori, Eric Hershler, David Pham's table that this stalling took place and it got to the point where he and Ted Lawson were forced to call the floor over to deal with the situation. The TD's assessment was that the accused parties were indeed guilty of stalling and would therefore be forced to play five extra hands after the rest of the field had finished.
Tomorrow the other half of the starting field will be taking their seats at the felt to find out who will join today's survivors on Monday. PokerListings.com will be there every step of the way to bring you all the action as it happens and as always I implore you to come along for the ride.
