Main Event Day 2

LAS VEGAS -- Play started for Day 2C at noon. Larry started with 42,550 chips. I'm not hovering, so I will only get occasional updates. One funny story:  a couple who are on their honeymoon both made it to Day 2 and are sitting at the same table!

Some stats:  6,352 total entrants; total chips 190,560,000; prize pool $59,708,800.

There is a mammoth brush fire burning close by. Forty square miles in the mountains near Las Vegas. Last night, the sky was brown. Sorry no pictures. They thought they had it 20% under control, but I'm afraid it's not even that contained. Maybe they'll get a handle on it today.
