Want the latest news and gossip emanating from the World Series of Poker at the Rio in Las Vegas? Here's where you'll find it.

Today in the 3-Bet we find the pure elation that comes from bagging up chips at the end of a Main Event day, the pure dejection of watching your dream crumble before your eyes and the stage set for the biggest day in WSOP Main Event history.

Big stack. Less than starting stack. Barely enough for one more orbit.

2) Drive Safely, Bustees

On the other end of the spectrum? Everyone who has to wait another 364 days to try again.

Who's left to talk about? Oh, just the 3,500 or so poker players about to take their seats for Day 1c today.

It's gonna be huge, it's gonna be packed with surprises and it's all right here on PokerListings. We're even taking requests so if you want your best friend's chip counts or a pic, let us know on Facebook, Twitter or right here under this article!

Gl to all putting $10k on the line today. We're right there with you.
