Players continue to be seated as the tournament moves into Level 2, with many of the late arrivals being parked at tables in the neighboring Tan Section here in the Amazon Room. Right now the total number of entries as listed on the big board has cruised past the 300-player mark and continues to increase.
A quick tour of Tan revealed a number of WSOP bracelet winners among those having newly entered. Steven Loube and Phil Galfond are here, each of whom holds a bracelet in a pot-limit Omaha event (Loube's in PLO Hi-Low). Dan Kelly is here, too, looking for his second bracelet.
Two-time bracelet winner Max Pescatori is seated in Tan as well. And two three-time bracelet winners are sitting next to each other at one of the tables, Daniel Alaei and Jeff Madsen.
Madsen, of course, just joined the three-bracelet club last night after winning Event #35: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha.
Finally, Erik Seidel has also joined the field in search of another piece of hardware do go along with the eight bracelets the Poker Hall of Famer has won.
