They do this all the time. The standard buy-in is $40k (100 big blinds) so $38k is nothing.
Interesting scenes just now. One of the seats came free and sbrugby (Brian Townsend) sat down. The whole table, including Phil Ivey, immediately emptied except for Luigi (Antonius), and then sbrugby sat out presumably because he didn't want to play Antonius heads-up.
