Event No. 3, $1,500 Omaha Hi/Lo 8-or-better, is underway at the 2009 WSOP and last we checked there were 908 runners (and rising), including pretty much every big name pro not still in the $40k event or who couldn’t quite swing yesterday’s buy-in. The size of today’s field already tops last year’s field of 832 so early on looks like The EconomyTM is not having the effect many thought it would.
Noticeably present in the Rio today are also a shit ton of gingers, including scary ginger from last year and this ginger dealer. So effing creepy. Really. Just gross. And they walk around this place without a care in the world, like it’s totally acceptable. Anyway, don’t expect for us to do the Ginger of the Day again like we did last year. That robbed our souls more than we thought possible.
