WSOP Satellite Update

LAS VEGAS -- Since starting the 1 p.m. satellite tournament, Larry has been pretty much short stacked. That's not so bad, but they have moved him SIX TIMES.

The tournament started with 1,000 people. That means that the remaining 100 players will earn a buy-in to the Main Event (worth $10,000). They are down to 245 people, and Larry just tripled up, has 74,000 chips! This could go a few more hours, but it doesn't matter. He'll still be ready to play at noon tomorrow no matter what. Even if he doesn't make it to the 100, it's quite a feat to move that many times, be short stacked, and keep going.
