2006 World Series of Poker
The Main Event can be tough as any player who particpated will tell you. But those playing today will also tell you that
$12,000,000 dollars for the first place win and a gold and diamond bracelet that cannot be purchased makes it all
worthwhile. Now that the combined players from 1A and 1B have finished and are resting up, it is time for the 1C and
1D survivors to take to the tables with the goal to play until 700 are left. Time will tell who moves on and who waits until next year
for another chance.
