12:06 p.m. It took two minutes for the first bust to occur. It was Asger Boye having 128,400 chips, moved all-in with pocket 9's only to be
stopped by a wall of pocket Queens.
12:24 p.m. We apologize on the first bust notation, actually there were so many busts from the start no one knows who it
was. Shannon Hudson with 26,100 chips busted out earlier than Boye courtesy of the two pair from Carlos Mortensen (4's and 5's).
12:45 p.m. Shirley Williams doubled up on a win after she went all-in with pocket A's and came out on top. Her stack now sits at 58,000.
Today should prove to be an exciting day as the money will be reached with player 621.
12:58 p.m. Play is now at level 12 with blinds at $1500/$3000 with a $400 ante. Recent busts include John Monette, Cindy Longoria,
Hao Dong, Chris Ferguson after his A 5 was beaten down with an opponents pocket Q's, Scott Lacy and David Farber.
2:02 p.m. There are now 715 players at tables. Huge upsets are taking place resulting in chip stacks vaulting upwards. Gus Hansen
started with 622,300 and is now up to 760,000, Thomas Koo began with 270,600 and is now at 614,200, Andy Philachack began with 451,500
and is now at 600,000 and Chad Brown had 320,000 and is up to 500,000 chips. Needless to say bracelet dreams are being crushed for many
by the minute.
2:39 p.m. More hypergrowth of chip stacks being reported. Huck Seed began with 280,500 and now has 480,000, Clint Schafer 300,000 to
500,000, Robert Damiano 276,100 to 571,000 and Carlos Mortensen 254,700 to 450,000. A big controversy came up during play at one table because
one player was speaking in Spanish and he was told according to the rules that this was an English speaking game and outside of communication
with the dealer you must speak in English, because players come from all over the world. To some it seemed harsh, until at another table two
players Raul Lopez and Christiane Klecz went all-in resulting in one player busting out and as expected one wanted to protest it. Raul did
not speak English and it took 20 minutes and the WSOP Commissioner Jeffrey Pollack at the table to straighten out the situation.
Meanwhile, no play took place for 20 minutes for the remaining players at that table.
3:00 p.m. Big upset happened when Andy Philachack pushed his chips to the middle and was busted! The winner Kenny Tran now has
over 1 million chips in his stack and is officially the chip leader at this time. Hand for hand play at the table has been declared
as play will now go up to level 13 with blinds at $2000/$4000 with a $500 ante. Plus the money bubble is about to burst as well. We'll
post the player count when they tell us what it is.
3:56 p.m. Hand for hand play still continues. Ted Forrest is gone in 634th place. Following his direction are Morgan Machina, Lee Markholt and Gary Avery. Scotty Nguyen is
at 68,000, Shirley Williams is at 115,000, Humberto Brenes 61,000, J.C. Tran is at 50,000, Billy Baxter 130,000, Robert Mizrachi
179,000 and Chip Jett is at 210,000.
4:54 p.m. We are down to 626 players.
5:43 p.m. The bubble has burst as we have reached the 621st player!. There is lots of celebration, people on their cell phones telling everyone
they know that they made the money in the WSOP! Brian Senie was down to his last 3 chips when he heard that someone else had busted out, he was very
happy he was not the "bubble boy". But he did bustout in the very next hand and will receive $20,320 for his efforts.
6:45 p.m. Now that the money players positions are made, eliminations are taking place everywhere. We'll keep you posted on the big names.
