      Sorry, I forgot to mention that the starting stack is 15k and there are about 800 players registered after the first level. Late reg is still open.

      Does anyone know if RobbieV uses twitter and updates during the games?

      Just got back from the first break with the players,

      Chip Counts:

      Thorsten77 10k
      RobbieV 25k
      Nazgul 29k
      BongBob 30k

      BongBob had doubled up in the very first hand. He got it all in on an A 5 4 flop, he had 55, villain had 44.

      Thorsten said : "I made such a weak fold". He raised UTG, an older lady 3-bet him in MP, he 4-bet with AA and the lady called. The flop came K T x , Thorsten77 bet out, the lady raised and Thorsten77 folded his pocket rockets.

      MikaPaasonnen and Bokkie are supposed to be playing too, but I still can't find them.

      Besides Nazgul's table, everyone seems to be very happy with their tables. They all think the competition is surprisingly soft in this event.

      They just started Level 4

      Chip Counts: (Lvl 4, blinds 100/200)

      BongBob 35k
      Nazgul 21k
      Thorsten77 10k
      RobbieV 28k

      Nazgul lost a huge pot worth about 24k.

      Villain opened and Nazgul flatted in position. The flop came 733 Rainbow and Nazgul flopped the nut boat.

      I'm not sure what the action was on the flop, but they got it in on the turn. Villain checked, Nazgul bet out, villain went all in and Nazgul called. Villain showed an overpair TT, and a T came on the river to give villain a better full house.

      Also saw Thorsten77 go all in with a relatively short stack, but he won the hand as villain folded to the pressure.

      Thorsten made it 650 from UTG+2, villain 3-bet to 1,500 in the BB, Thorsten77 called.

      The flop came 5 5 3 and both hecked. The turn was 2, villain checked again, Thorsten decided to go all-in with his last 7,025 chips.

      Villain tanked for some time, sighed, and moved around in his seat, and finally folded.

      Finally, Andrew Robl got moved to RobbieV's table and is seated to his immediate left. Robl had an average looking stack.

      Players are on their 2nd 20 minute break now. When they return, it will be level 5 with blinds of 100/200 and 25 ante.

      I finally found Bokkie, he came a bit late, and is now seated next to Liv Boeree. Will go hunt down MikaPaasonen after this.

      Chip counts:

      Bokkkie 17k
      RobbieV 21k
      BongBob32k
      Thorsten77 13k
      Nazgul busto.

      Nazgul was sent to the rails by the same player who rivered the better full house again him.

      Villain raised from HJ, Nazgul made it 1,500, villain made it 4,500, Nazgul 50bets to 8,050 and villain goes all-in. JJ vs AA and the board came K 4 8 6 7.

      Nazgul said he didn't think villain would make it 4,500 with AA, he put villain on something like AK.


      Bokkie and Liv Boeree

      Late reg has closed and we have 865 players in this event. The total prize pool is just over $4 million and I think the first prize is around $700k, will get the exact numbers to you in a bit.

      I finally found MikaPaasonen and he has about 10k chips now.
