If Hellmuth ended up winning this thing, how much of a cut is Matusow asking for?
Pretty amazing he has a not too bad stack..I think he should buy Matusow a house..

I know I don't post here much anymore. I made day 2A with 73k and made day 3 with 303,700. A bunch of other guys who used to post here are playing 2B today including Fluff and Loosh. GL to everyone still in!
Good Luck, here's hoping you have to write the IRS a big fat check.

They get enough already. But I guess the more they get, the more I get. That's gotta be a good thing :club:

wow.... unbelievableI guess he could have thought 1a and 1b were merging together and not 1a and 1c. But still... I'm sure they made tons of announcements.
I read somewhere that he played a different day 1 than he originally planned to, so I guess he forgot that because he played a different day 1 his day 2 would also change.

he's been wearing the pokerstars.net gear so my guess is YES, but don't know for surejason_alexander_wsop_2a.jpg
ah ha!
He's a "Friend" of Poker Stars
There were some questions after BF as to who stars would be putting in the ME. Good to see Jason getting to play on the cheap.

yeah, that would be too bad if one of probably the top 5 wealthiest people in the room had to put up 10 large

Awesomeness:Poker Is Played With 52 Cards....Right?Posted 16 minutes ago by BenLudlow • Level 9: 500-1,000, 100 ante We just heard an uproar from Table #261 as they demanded a count of the deck they had been playing with. Apparently, after 40 minutes of play with the same deck and dealer, a new dealer pushed and immediately felt the deck being short some cards. Then, one of the players at the table demanded a count of the deck and it was in fact eight cards short. One of the players at the table said jokingly, "Yeah, I mean I figured something was wrong when no one was hitting any flops at all."The player who noticed the deck said, "When she seemed like something was wrong with the deck, I told her 'You better count those cards before you deal them out', and sure enough I was right. The floor just ran away with the setup and gave us a new one, but it's kind of ridiculous you know?"Another player at the table asked the media members surrounding the table, "What do you think we should get in compensation?" Everyone seemed to agree an apology was in order to which she said, "Not on my watch, we better get something!" The table echoed her sentiments.Players at the table next to them including 2006 Main Event Champ Jamie Gold, and Ray Henson were also curious as to what was going on, especially whether the cards had been found. Henson said, "I'm pretty sure I could feel a deck and know if it was short some cards, especially if it was that many." Gold then chimed in, "They can't just let this go, they should be searching every player at that table to make sure they weren't taking cards out of the deck the whole time."The table is now playing with a new deck, and you better bet they are sure they have all 52 this time. If we hear anything else as to what happened to those missing eight cards or where the mystery setup has run off to, we'll let you know.Read more: http://www.pokernews.com/live-reporting/20...m-championship/

That's seriously a joke. I hope nobody got stacked/crippled during those hands. A lot of dealers I know can detect a light deck even if it's by only 1 or 2 cards. How the hell do you not notice it being 8 cards light...?

They never played hands with it and players were exaggerating things:WXc1L4MT2HawnL1uH7Gv.jpg

Why do so many more people play days C and D instead of A or B?
Too long of a break would be feel odd for me taking the natural flow out of the game.
