WSOP Main Event

Recommended Posts

Starts in 1 hour :drums :drums Wonder how many it will get :unsure Think there are 3 starting days with a capacity of 2500 each day? Plus any "replacements" (I forget the official term!!) Day 3 is supposedly full - so might not be that far short of last years figure....

Re: WSOP Main Event Interesting - don't know when this changed, but there are now 4 x Day 1 .... it's strange because the "contingency" day was supposed to be for a second day 2, not an extra day 1 :unsure With a 3000 capacity too, looks like numbers could well be bigger than last year!!!! World Championship No-Limit Texas Hold'em (Event 55) No Rebuy/Add-ons

You cannot be on a cellphone or text messaging when the first card is dealt. If you are, you're hand is declared deal. 3. You cannot put chips in your pockets or conceal them anyway or take them off the tournament floor, they will be taken out of play.

1 minutes ago First Bad Beat Story of the Main Event Hope you can keep your lunch down after reading this. Player has Aces, raises to 300. Another player on the button has Ac.gifKc.gif, pops it to 1,200. First player re-raises to 4,000, guy with Big Slick goes all-in. And of course the player with Aces calls. The flop? All clubs. The player with Ac.gifKc.gif flops the nut flush and the player with Aces is the first player knocked out of the 2007 World Series of Poker. That'll be $10,000, please.

Apparently there was just over 5,000 entered earlier this morning, so I doubt it will be too much more than 6,000.

Re: WSOP Main Event Still watching the updates and see crispin leyser playing (he who's in dispute about getting some of jamie gold's winnings from last year) so have a dig around to try and find the latest on that saga and find that "Should Gold keep all $12 million, he would owe $4.2 million in federal taxes alone. If Gold splits the prize money at the casino, he and Leyser would each owe $2.1 million on $6 million apiece. Gold and Leyser would also have to pay state taxes. $4mill in bloody tax!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :loon:loon:loon Is that then the same for all winnings - it's taxed by 1/3. If so it begs the question 'is it worth entering at all?'
