24 players left and it shouldn’t be a surprise that close to half of them come from the big game at the Bellagio. I counted 7 guys who have all played the $4000-$8000 game:

Daniel Negreanu
Doyle Brunson
Barry Greenstein
Phil Ivey
Huck Seed
Ralph Perry
Lyle Berman

That’s the final table I’m rooting for along with any of: Erick Lindgren, Scotty Nguyen, or Farzad Bonyadi. Scotty and Bonyadi have been mixed game grinders for years at mid-high limit cash games and E-DOG, well E-DOG is my buddy so I gotta root for him too!

I think it’s important that this event continues to see excellent players at the final table with the odd surprise here and there.

Anyway, 1pm now and time to get ready for day 4. I have been keeping up with my video blog on a daily basis and as always you can find them at www.fullcontactpoker.com or at www.rawvegas.tv
