Another popular event – number 17, the $5 000 buy-in No-Limit Hold'Em – attracted a field of 792, playing down to 225 survivors by Day 2, with some fierce and competitive action by entrants with their eyes on a main prize that will be over $800 000,
Many of the big names were in the event, such as Chino Rheem, Antonio Esfandiari, Shannon Elizabeth, Phil Hellmuth, Jason Mercier and Tony G, and a good number of younger internet players like Jeff "yellowsub86" Williams, Amit "amak316" Makhija and James "Flushy" Dempsey.
By 11pm Wednesday night Vegas time the money bubble had been reached, meaning the remaining 59 players would cash at least $10 000. Annette Obrestad just made it, only to bust out shortly thereafter after a clash with Samuel Trickett – her first US WSOP cash. Vitaly Lunkin was also out just after the bubble.
Steven Goosen was leading the field as InfoPowa went to press, but he had David Benefield and John Luu hot on his heels.
