Ten stalwart poker players remain from the 96 who started Event 23 - $10,000 World Championship No-Limit Deuce-to-Seven Draw a few days ago. Play was suspended last night at 3am after protracted discussions about playing for another hour or longer until the final seven had been determined.
As a result we start the day with two five-handed tables. The story of the tournament right now is a man named Vince Musso. Musso (if Hendon Mob is accurate) has one previous WSOP cash to his credit -- 30 years ago in this very event, where he came in third behind runner-up Byron Wolford and champion Bobby Baldwin. Musso is leading the field with 765,000, a very comfortable stack when initial blinds today will be 6,000 and 12,000.
Play gets underway at 2pm local time. Will Musso be crowned champion by the end of the night? There's only one way to find out. Keep your browser pointed at PokerNews.com throughout the day for all of the live tournament updates.
