The $5,000 Shootout Event only took seven hours from start to finish. Alex Kravchenko smiled, and the Celtics won - quite an eventful time, to say the least.
Another final table was reached tonight at the $2,500 No Limit Holdem Event. Towards the end it seemed like there was light at the end of the tunnel but then shorties started doubling up all over the place.
Play carried on and even though Adam Katz was in third place when the table of ten began, he ended up being the FTBB. Katz's demise came when he was Duncan Hinsed by the deck.
Katz turned middle two pair against Duncan Bell's top and bottom and, in a monster pot, that was all she wrote for Katz who is officially the most disappointed person in Vegas to win $38,232 today.
Who could've have forgotten that there was also an Omaha Eight tournament starting today? Certainly not PL.com. Along with the rest of the world, we watched on the edge of our seats as pots were chopped left and right.
The rail boiled over with hysteria that hasn't been seen since the Beatles era and fresh bustouts from the Ladies Event were stricken by the vapors at the mere sight of it.
Seriously, though it might not be the most exciting game in the world, a lot of the best showed up to give it a shot. Mike Matusow (who the railbirds at Full Tilt will tell you with confidence is the best in the world at this game) made an early exit as did Vanessa Rousso, Andy Bloch, and Jeff Lisandro.
Out of the 551 that plunked down their money to play, 178 will return tomorrow including Marc Goodwin, Barry Greenstein, and Jimmy 'Gobboboby' Fricke who are the top three on the leaderboard at the moment.
