So how'd you go icemonkey?
Day 1d underway now, Hellmuth has shown up in typical Hellmuth fashion, and it seems that Harrah's is just going to limp over the line with the total number of entries: first two days were way quiet, but today's a big field and they've got more entrants than last year.
Final numbers and the payouts got announced a few minutes ago, they finished up with 6844 runners. 666 will get paid (no joke) and first place will get a shade over $9 million.
Lots of big name bustouts over the past few days, some of the big stacks going into Day 2 will be Brandon Adams, Mark Vos, Robert Mizrachi, Erick Lindgren, David Singer, Evelyn Ng, Brad Booth and hundreds of people you've never heard of before.
Oh - and Jerry Yang's playing today. He almost managed to bust in the first level, and was still below the starting stack last I checked
