Where did all the big names go?

I waited until dinner break yesterday before naming all the pros in the six handed. I was surprised to see that, with the exception of Canadian Scott Montgomery, the final, at 4pm today, consists of complete unknowns. In fact most of them don’t even have a Hendonmob database entry the bible or encyclopedia for all tournament results. Only Mike Schneider in 16th finished in the money of the recognizable pros .

Good luck to all of them today. First short break at 4:45; Unofficial chip counts: Mike Kamron 450k, A Krisak 185, Victor Sobrepena 180k, Kris Martonik 125k Brian Bumpas 125k + Scott Montgomery 100k.

10) Dean Gilford
9)   Josh Bergman
8)  Benny Wan
7)  Mike Kamran
6) Alan Knutsen
5) Alex Krisak
7:00pm
Kamran lost his 450k, most of them to Brian Bumpas. The other big stack Alex Krisak is also out. Four players survive.
Brian Bumpas 480k, Kris Martonik 360k, Victor Sobrepena 250k, Scott Montgomery 100k.

1) Brian Bumpas         $46k
2) Victor Sobrepena   $22k
3) Kris Martonik         $13k
4) Scott Montgomery

Today would be my favourite tournament to play the stud8/omaha8. Should be some old school entries. 188 entered. 64 remain at 9pm so a long night ahead. Maria Ho, Gary Do, Mark Gregorich, Tony Ma , Bob Golick and Terry are among the survivors.

Downstairs Ralph Perry, Eli Elezra, Chino Rheem, Fabrice Soulier + Barry Greenstein have joined the Chinese/High Limit fun.
