With Day 2 wrapped at the WPT Mirage Poker Showdown, Darrell "Gigabet" Dicken (at right) is big stacked, almost lapping the field with 501,900. Dicken won the first prelim event of the Mirage Poker Showdown, and he’s hoping to go deep and bang out a second Mirage win in just two under weeks. Dick. En.
Stacked second overall is some guy named Phil Ivey. Is he good? Never heard of him. He’s stacked at 284,900.
Only 40 remain from the original 309 person, mostly male field. Other notables include: Jon Friedberg (245,600), Chip Reese (175,000), Eric Froehlich (166,200), creepy as hell Rene Angelil (111,800), David "the Dragon" Pham* (97,900), Nam Le (65,500), and Shannon Shorr (65,200).
