Fox Sports published one of my articles called Top 10 Poker Personalities. Take a peek. That was one of the articles I toiled on late last night.
A few of my friends in the media played in today's $1,500 NL event. There were almost 3,000 players and they took alternates again.
As of 4:20pm Vegas time, Spaceman has 4300 in chips. Caldwell has 4K. Otis and Ryan are out. Ryan already posted something about today's event.
Back by popular demand!

Updates: Spaceman Cometh and Hellmuth's Chasing #10!
4:30pm... Hellmuth lost the lead early after Juha Helpi took a pot from him on the very first hand. Since then Hellmuth busted Ralph Perry (8th place) and David Plastik (7th place). Hellmuth's J-J held up against Perry's 9-9. Then Hellmuth found A-A and knocked out Plastik who had J-J.
4:40pm... With 6 players remaining, Hellmuth has almost 1M in chips and has a 2-1 lead over Daryn Firicano in second place.
5:30pm... Four remain. Hellmuth is still in front.
1 Phil Hellmuth 930K6:20pm... Spaceman is out of his event by a bad beat too. A-9 to A-7. His opponent spiked a 7. Prior to that he lost two races and most of his stack. Spaceman had a good run and finished in about 500th place and just missed the money. I think he won the last longer with Gavin Smith. If Smith busted out before Spaceman, he was gonna donate $750 to For Peyton.
2 Daryn Firicano 550K
3 John Spadavecchia 520K
4 Juha Helppi 500K
6:40pm... Players are on a dinner break until 7:40pm.

9:40pm... Down to 3 after Hellmuth's A-10 busted John Spadavecchia's Q-8 in 4th place. Hellmuth leads with 1.475M. Juha Helppi 530K and Daryn Firicano 425K trail Hellmuth who has almost a 3 to 1 lead on Juha.
10:20pm... Hellmuth still ahead with 3 to go. I'm done for the night. Heading to Tao with Change100 for the BoDog party. Check Poker Wire for the updates.
