POKER KITCHEN, RIO CONVENTION CENTER -- Day 2 has started. The bags of chips were on the tables, and each player had to show ID and then open the bag and stack chips. (They weren't just ziplock bags -- they were specially designed for holding chips.) The dealer allowed me to do that for Larry. That's as close as I'll ever get to playing here.
Hope I don't get a text while I'm sitting here writing. Unless he's doubled up. Or everybody else busted out at his table.
According to the WSOP website, by 24 minutes in, at least 6 people have already busted out in the Pavilion Room. There's also the Brasilia Room and the Amazon Room (where L is).
That's all the action (or lack of it) for now.
