We just walked into Greg Mueller and Paul Volpe scouting out the tournament area and for now it looks like neither is going to play in this tournament.
"The scheduling's just not perfect for me," Mueller said. "They've put a few tournaments in a row that I all like, but the cash games have been really good."
Mueller skipped the $50,000 Poker Players' Championship earlier this week for the same reason and today he decided to give it a shot in the enormous Monster Stack event. If Mueller were to bust out of that event we still think there's a decent chance the 2009 $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship winner enters this event.
Muellers' good friend Daniel Idema's currently also playing in the Monster Stack and that means the 2011 winner of this tournament will also not be participating in this one today.
The reasons for Volpe not to play this event are a bit different, as he's clearly not a fan of the format. "I just don't know if I can do it," Volpe said with a smile as he scrolled down the list of upcoming events.
"There's nothing fun really tomorrow either," Volpe said after a pause, and for now it looks like the winner of the $10,000 No Limit 2-7 Single Draw's taking a few days off. Earlier today Volpe busted out of the Monster Stack so a second bracelet will have to wait for man from New Jersey.
