Day Two WSOP TOC updates. No meltdown yet!

Well, Phil and Mike haven't been at the same table yet but it's coming. With only 23 players left in the field we will be down to only two tables before too long. While they STILL may not tangle immediately (due to Tournament Director Jimmy Sommerfeld's seating assignments) you can be sure they will meet soon as they are chip leaders by a wide margin. The top 5 players by chip count are as follows:

1. Phil Hellmuth $170,100
2. Mike Matusow $143,300
3. Keith Sexton $83,000
4. Hoyt Corkins $72,000
5. Aaron Bartley $70,700

The average stack is around 45K so these players are the ones to watch. With their huge lead and playing experience, I don't expect Phil nor Mike to screw this up. I can't wait to see these two battle!

No real fireworks to report yet, if you've ever wondered how many camera men and women it takes to film a final table the magic number is apparently 12. That's right, the featured table is surrounded by 12 ESPN camera crew members. Not 12 cameras but 12 people, there are 5 cameras being used at the moment and there are several technicians needed to man the hole card cams, etc. Everytime a player misses showing his cards to the hole card camera, play is interrupted and that player has to flash his cards to the camera. It's a big distraction and some players are starting to grumble about it already.

Other players to note that are still in the field are Doyle Brunson with 32K and Johnny Chan with 33K. Blinds are currently at 1K and 2K with a 300 ante so they still have a little wiggle room.

Stay tuned.
