Today's Table Draw

by Shannon Shorr |  Published: Dec 15, '07

I have drawn what appears to be a very good table draw for day 3 of today's WPT 5 diamond. I recognize only Freddy Bonyadi and Al "Al_Smooth" Zeidenfeld, and after some google work none of the others appear to have any significant cashes. That doesn't mean that they're all not great players, so we'll have to wait and see. Yesterday's tables were breaking in ascending order. The tables range from table 48 to 64, and I'm at table 50. I hope that they change the breaking order today, or else my table will probably break around the end of the first level just before potentially being in the money. Amazingly, my 96600 chips is good for second out of ninth in chips at this table. Keep in mind the average stack is 123550 at the moment. The players at my table:

Seat 1...Trevor Neufeld 79800 chips

Seat 2...Paul Stankovski 55700 chips

Seat 3...Andreas Pavlou 40000 chips

Seat 4...Freddy Bonyadi 40600 chips

Seat 5...Me 96600 chips

Seat 6...Al "Al_Smooth" Zeidenfeld 37000 chips

Seat 7...JJ Grogan 75900 chips

Seat 8...Ivan Gannitskiy 158200 chips

Seat 9...Richard Zipes 69100 chips
