Ultimate Poker Challenge Day 2 Recap

Flipchip and I hung out at the Plaza today. Head over to Las Vegas and Poker Blog to read my Ultimate Poker Challenge Day 2 Recap. Of course, Flipchip posted some photos of the event. There were 55 players for the $10K buy in UPC tournament. Here's the payout structure:
1st = $167,500
2nd = $100,750
3rd = $54,600
4th = $44,300
5th = $32,500
6th = $27,100
7th = $21,500
8th = $18,300
9th = $15,200
10th and 11th = $13,500
12th - 14th = $11,000
The final table starts at 2pm on Wednesday. I'll do some random live blogging here on my poker blog. Stay tuned. Here's the chip counts:
1. Mike Wattel $351K
2. Senthil Kumar $331K
3. Andy Bloch $305K
4. Chau Giang $234K
5. Blair Rodman $169K
6. Scott Fischman $139K
7. Ted Forrest $124K
The players listed above will come back to play fora $167,500 first place prize and the infamous gold bracelet. On Tuesday, I spotted Heather and Jen from Poker Wire, along with Jason from Full Tilt. They were covering the event along with Steve Hall. Good to see friendly and familair faces. Last week I got to see BJ and Sherry. By the way, I miss getting groped Amy Calistri!
