Play got underway at 2 p.m. today and by 8 p.m. only the strong - and possibly the lucky - had survived. Billy Baxter playing in the Commerce Casino just down the way.
Perhaps Greenstein was using his $20,575 in tournament winnings from earlier this afternoon, as he was one of 45 players who made the 2007 Legends of Poker money. Other notables who came close enough to cash but didn't get the cigar include Cernuto who finished 27th, Russ "Dutch" Boyd who placed 30th, Jordan Morgan who placed 33rd, David Chiu who was 35th, Anna Wroblewski who was 42nd and Josh Arieh who finished in 44th place.
Though 18 remain, there can be only one legend of poker - well, at least at this tournament. In 2007. Anyway, the field will be whittled to just six tomorrow and PokerListings.com will be there from start to finish. So count on us for your live tournament coverage because we do everything: updates, interviews, chip counts and corny puns. We'll meet you here tomorrow at 2 p.m. for some No-Limit action that will give you a bigger boost than even the most pro-endorsed poker energy drink. So long!
