All of our action will come from the Brasilia room today. For those of you have never been here let us just quickly explain the set up. The room is divided into four quarters: Gold, Silver, Bronze and Red. At the moment the players are confined into the Gold and Silver section of the room.
Two of Europe's top players Martin Jacobson and Adrien Allain are sharing table space. Jacobson has $2.8 million in live tournament earnings including 6 WSOP cashes with 2 final tables under his belt. Allain has a WPT title on his resume and a 3 WSOP cashes with 1 final table under his belt.
Two of the greatest live tournament players in the world are seated on Table #5. Chris Moorman and Jason Mercier are bound to end up in a heap of action today. Mercier fresh of an evening of frivolity celebrating his good friend Brent Hanks WSOP victory in Event #2 last night.
Hiren 'Sunny' Patel and Noah Schwartz are seated together. Schwartz very kindly offering to stake us to play in the tournament instead of reporting on it - thanks Noah.
So that is it for the early birds in the Gold section, but the doors are open and the players keep flooding in.
