It's bubble time at the Main Event. It's always interesting to see how different players handle this situation. Some players close up tighter than a drum, while others open up the floodgates. In an event like this, people have different goals, meaning that sometimes, by-the-book strategy might not be the ideal choice. For some of the thousands of people who qualified for this event for substantially less than the $10,000 buy-in, the thought of busting out on the bubble might be more than they can handle. Players drop at a rapid pace throughout the day and, for one of these qualifiers sitting on a less-than-average stack, it might be worth their while to hang tight.

Poker Claus has made his list and checked it twice, and by now he knows who has been naughty or nice. All the nice boys and girls are in Las Vegas for the WPT's Five Diamond World Poker Classic at Bellagio, but the naughty boys and girls? Well, they're in South Jersey. It's the World Series of Poker Circuit Event from Harrah's Atlantic City and the excitement, like the odor, is palpable. But it's better than a sugar plum, right?

Annette watched her lead evaporate as Peters pulled even before claiming this title for himself.
It took 16 hours of poker but the tenacious Jerry Yang would not be denied. Yang came into the day as one of the short stacks and proceeded to rampage his way through the competition.
