The Bubble Just Burst
And most of them did when tournament officials made the announcement.
The bubble burst when a player who finished 874th got knocked out. A line was already forming at the cash-out podium, and players both weary and happy handed the friendly Harrah’s official their slip to receive the $14,597. The next cash bubble occurs at 820. All the players who finish 820 and higher are guaranteed $15,504.
The plan is to play until there are 600 players left tonight. Right now. it's the dinner break, and there are about 735 players left. There are some big names still alive and surviving namely Annie Duke, Ted Forrest, Hoyt Corkins and Darrel Dicken. AMazingly, Daniel Negreanu started the day 6th in chips with about 330,000+, but now has sunk to 55,000. I still dont have the details as to what happened to his stack but knowing the skill level of that guy, he must have taken some sick beats.
I'll try to keep up with the action and post some results as soon as possible!
