Since Dave didn't put up his usual event preview for today, I figured I'd post the info for everyone.
Today's event is a $1500 Limit Hold'em event. It started at 12:00 this afternoon with 713 players. Last year the winner was Eric Froehlich, who set the record for youngest person to win a World Series bracelet, at 21 years and 3 months. First was $361,910, 9th was $28,950, and 100th was $1590.
Dave talked to EB during the first break, and at that time Dave had doubled up to around $3000 in chips, so things are starting out well. The second break should be around 4:30, and EB will probably talk to him again then, and he'll post a comment here to tell you the details of what's going on so far!

Yes yes yes. For the love of all that is good and holy, give us our medicine!!!!
Oh, Dave, I thought of a good question. Given that your specialty is the single table tournament, I'm wondering why you didn't enter either of the $1K shootout events. Seems like it might be advantageous to you, getting to cut down the field 10 at a time?
