WSOP MAIN EVENT QUICK UPDATE ....
I have not discussed the WSOP this year, but will be following play down to the final table this week. Day 4 has just ended and we lost approx half of the field, still waiting for confirmed totals, but it looks like just over 400 players will return for a 5th day's play, with each guaranteed at least $27,469.
Final nine will all become millionaires and battle for a winner's cheque of over $8.5 m . Amongst the leaders are big name players Phil Ivey and Bertrand ELkY Grospellier, sponsors and television companies and probably the sport in general, will be drooling at the prospect of a "November Nine" table containing Ivey, which they could milk to death in the intervening months.
