Event 9, Greg Mueller, Sirous Jamshidi, Tom Roupe, Leo Wolpert and Phil Tom. Action kicks off at 2 p.m. and continues until somebody's got themselves a bracelet.
Event 12, the $1,500 Limit Hold'em tournament, however, had a bit more trouble playing down to its own final table. The inhuman length of tournament Day 2s is quickly becoming a problem at this year's World Series of Poker, with limit events particularly afflicted.
With 18 players left by 3 a.m., tournament organizers decided to pause play until 3 p.m. on Sunday, when they'll resume action and play down to a bracelet. Note to the WSOP: next year, four day events. Among those still alive with two tables remaining are Erick Lindgren, Vinnie Vinh, Markus Golser and "Ice Man" Teddy Monroe.
Saturday also saw Day 1s from Events 13 and 14, the $2,500 No Limit Hold'em and $10,000 World Championship Stud tournaments. Theo Tran, looking to eclipse his back-to-back fourth place finishes at earlier NLHE final tables his year, finished Day 1 of Event 13 second in chips with $131,000, while in the Stud World Championship it's Chad Brown at the top of a star-(wait for it)-studded field.
