                    Think he might have been withdrawn not under orders. Rule 4 to all bets 1.5 please send money to me.

                      The second sentence here makes no sense and leads me to believe you are at least partially simple

                                So you're in the BB with 5's and closing the action,
                                Bloke shoves blind then shows you Q3o, then shows you his cock,
                                then throws his shoe at you while you tank.
                                Do you risk your life in the years biggest tournament?
                                Pretty sure Pio Solver has the answer but no idea how to enter the data!

                                The poor sod on the receiving end of this treatment
                                then takes the bad beat for his troubles
                                and then has his nose royally rubbed in it when
                                the stack he just lost is taken off the table when his opponent is DQed

                                  Downtown starting Day with top 30 stack, Gavonator/Toby Joyce/Blaaaah/Andy Black going well and Barry Donovan from Dunleer, UK still in too.

                                    Have looked for a list of all entrants but cant find it. Am genuinely interested to see if Karl Curry entered after all his whinging in the staking thread. He said he sold out so either entered or stole another 10k. Can anyone link to a list of players?

                                      This is not that happened.

                                      Guy shoves blind and floor is called, ruling is if nobody raises then the shove stands, EP guy limps, shove stands. Guy folds 55 and the limper open folds A3. Nobody was busted and only had the drunks guys stack was taken out

                                          Fake news. The pocket Fives podcast cleared it all up

                                              I doubt those chip counts are correct. Probably wont be updated for a couple of hours.

                                                I looked through days 1A and 1B, couldn’t be bothered to look at Day 1C, I’m on mobile. No sign from what I saw.

                                                          I wouldn't bother with the PokerGo sub. I signed up for it for the WSOP and nothing ever seems to be on it. Seems to be an odd hour here and there during the middle of the night.

                                                                    Some faces left in the field notably Hossein Ensan & Dario Sammartino but I couldn't be happier to see poker industry veteran Garry Gates making the final table and sitting in second place, here's hoping he makes a run at the final table and is crowned the 2019 WSOP Main Event Champion.

                                                                    2019 WSOP Main Event Official Final Table

I've seen him over the years at EPT's and he always struck me as a nice gent I think he'll be a good champion, could say similar about Sammartino if he won also.

                                                                      Was gutted to see Garry Gates bow out in 4th spot but I'm looking forward to catching up with him and seeing this years coverage when it comes out in episode format.
