WSOP 2009 Main Event update Day 1b, 1c is today

Numbers were decidedly down for Day 1b of play in Event 57 - $10,000 World Championship No Limit Hold'em, with only 873 showing up to battle it out. Let's not get silly and say that poker is dead yet, okay?!? 655 players survived the day including these folks I recognized skimming along: Joe Sebok, Shaun Deeb, Michael Demichele, Alex Kravchenko, Amarillo Slim Preston, Rolf Slotboom, Hoyt Corkins, Greg Raymer, Mike 'The Mouth' Matusow, Thor Hansen, Todd Brunson, Pam Brunson, Chris Ferguson, Kara Scott, Barry Greenstein, Erik Seidel, Carlos Mortensen, and Mike Caro.

Casulaties of the day: Doyle Brunson, David 'The Dragon' Pham, and Chris Moneymaker. (ouch)

On tap for today will be Day 1c, and we'll have to wait what the numbers say today, which is usually a big day for big names and numbers in the Main Event. Stay tuned for more poker at
