Andrew FeldmanHey everyone! Welcome to Day 3! 1,765 players remain and the cards are in the air
Matt (CO)Any thoughts/insight on what's happening with HPT? (both founders announced their departure on Twitter yesterday)
Andrew FeldmanThe fate of the HPT hasn't been determined just yet, but yes, a major shakeup to the lower buy-in tour that was thriving has occurred. It really is a shame how the whole thing progressed...
brad (boston)Mr. Feldman, can you try to give us some twitter updates today from the following tables: Brasillia 12-T Chan, JC Tran, Cajelais 16-Shaun Deeb, Erick Lindgren, 40-Binger/Katachlov Amazon 400 - Shannon Shorr and Galfond. Thanks in advance!
Andrew FeldmanSure, but Brasilia will be breaking relatively quickly today.
Person (DC)Which former ME champs are left?
Andrew FeldmanEastgate, Chan, Harrington, Yang, Seed and of course, Heinz.
Tony (Chicago)I have to believe Antonio Esfandiari is about as relaxed at the table as he ever has been (taking down the "One Drop" will do that!) Do you think his chances at making a deep run are better considering he's kinda "freerolling?"
Andrew FeldmanHe was extremely focused when I spoke to him yesterday. Sure, he's freerolling in a sense after his One Drop win, but he really just wants to follow that up with a deep main event finish. Could be incredible if he really starts to make a run this year.
Billy Madison (NYC)How does it feel to live like a poker player for a few weeks without actually playing in Vegas?
Andrew FeldmanHaha. That's a great way to look at it. I'm probably more tired than the players...
Brian (Brighton)After the summer that Selbst has had, how amazing would it be if Boeree, Ho and Selbst (all housemates) could cash and make a deep run. Nevermind the fact that the chipleader is a woman as well. How many girls will be in the final 27 in your eyes?
Andrew FeldmanThat would be a great story. Pretty talented poker house regardless. I'll say 2 women in the final 27. We haven't had a really really really deep finish from a woman in a couple years, so I'll say this is the year
Dave (NJ)Over/under: 5 years until we get a repeat November Niner?
Andrew FeldmanUnder. Ben Lamb has chips today...
Joe P. (Las Vegas, NV)Have you heard anything lately about online poker in Nevada and when it's supposed to start? I know MGM/Mirage already had their license approved for it. Also, will only Nevada residents be allowed to play on these sites?
Andrew FeldmanAs of now, yes only Nevada and it's expected to be available late this year or very early next year.
Nolan (Hartford)ESPN start their live coverage yet?
Andrew FeldmanWe've started taping. No live coverage this year until the final table.
matt (ny)andrew - any reason you can think of why no A-List celebrities/athletes didn't play in the One Drop? All of the big actors (maguire/damon/affleck) haven't played in the Main Event in a few years either...
Andrew FeldmanIt's still $1 million...and most of them know they are really dead money. Not surprising at all that they didn't play. I am more surprised that more celebrities didn't play the main event. Seems like we lost a few familiar faces this year.
Sean (Boston)Has there been any follow up from the tournament director about the "all in" controversy where the player mucked his hand face up and jokingly said "all in"?
Andrew FeldmanNothing new, but anything involving that situation would be held in private. Especially since it's a cash game...
Chad (Canada)Do they expect to break the cash bubble today or tomorrow? Can you give us the tone of the chatter in the hallways as the players all finally join in the same field?
Andrew FeldmanThey'll break the bubble during the first level tomorrow. The room is eerily quiet right now for being filled with 1K players...
Brad (boston)Feature table today? Has to be lamb and selbst seated next to each other right? Brasillia 79
Andrew FeldmanThey are actually in the Amazon Room at a feature table. Selbst is on Lamb's left...so...one of them will have 500K and one of them should be out relatively soon. Crazy table draw. Can't imagine it'll be very long until we see a seven-bet with K-3 against Q-6.
JJ (Iowa)I see that Selbst and Lamb are at the secondary feature table. Who's at the featured table??
Andrew FeldmanSorry for the delayed response on this one, Pius Heinz just went out.
Andrew FeldmanDaniel Negreanu is at the feature table
Timmy (Teetville)Which of last years Nov 9 will make it the furthest in your opinion?
