Event #2 Update: Fisch + ‘Fish In, Mouth + ‘Muth Out

Just before 10:30pm in Las Vegas, and we’re down to 11 players. Since our last report, both Phil Hellmuth and Mike Matusow took cliff dives from their massive stacks, landing themselves on the rails. Matusow went from starting the day with the second largest chip stack to losing around $120,000 in less than 30 minutes, bowing out in 44th place with $4,225 in winnings. Hellmuth drained a bit slower, losing about $100,000 in 2 hours and went out in 24th, winning $15,905. Others making it to today but not to the final table include David Pham, out in 22nd place, and Minh Ly who finished 13th. Still in the hunt with 11 left is defending champ in this event, Scott Fischman, as well as Devilfish and An Tran. While Devilfish was our pick to win this event when the day began, from all reports Fischman is on a rush and is going to be tough to beat. But as we all know everything can change when you’re down to just 9 players and 1 table. That we’ll see tomorrow.

    Man, not another victory from “The Crew.” Although it’s tough to say who I’d want to win less, Fischman, Hellmuth, or Matusow.
