Did anyone see that top Danish pro Henerik Jensen was called Henerik Link on TV--i think the announcers didnt know what was going on there--he almost made final table!!He was called Jensen earlier in the coverage and then all of a sudden he was called Link---it sure had me confused
They actually addressed this in the broadcast. They said his name was both Jensen and Brink (weird Scandinavian naming custom(?)), but he preferred Brink.
The one that got me for a while was Jeff Trudeau and Jeffrey Trudeau in very similar spots on the leaderboard in the early days. Both American, both with similar chipstacks. There was no specific bio information to differentiate them, and only Jeff shows up on the cashout board (26th). If they are different people, we won't know for a while since non cashers are not yet listed.
