We're just doing some number crunching over here, and the results are... well, not so good.
Our event is scheduled to run for another three levels tonight, at which point we're supposed to be down to (or very close to) the final table. That's not so much going to happen. The field size was comparable last year, and Day 2 finished with 23 players still in the hunt. They played it out on Day 3, but Sammy Farha didn't get to hoist the bracelet until breakfast time the following morning as the sun was already rising bright in the desert sky.
This year, there is a hard stop in place that will keep us from playing on into the mid-morning hours. All that really means is this event is a near-lock to bleed over into a fourth day on Thursday.
