    I’m glad this competition seems to have lived up to some of the hype that preceded the event. I like John Juanda, but with his links to Full Tilt ,and the scandal that has only recently been resolved, feelings are still mixed about him. However, this tournament is far from over and I expect lots of twists and turns in the next few days. It would be nice to see some relatively unknown players reach the final table as to make this event a truly monumental occasion.
