Like the Movie Fast and Furious, Bust-Outs Are Fast and Furious After Bubble Bursts + Will ESPN Put Tobey Maguire at the Featured Table?

What a painful headline that was.

Took awhile, but the bubble finally burst for the 2007 WSOP Main Event. Everyone remaining will bring home at least $20k. Some early bust-outs since the bubble burst included Gavin Smith and Tony Hachem.

Not a pre-bubble bust or post-bubble burst for that matter is one Robert Fucking Varkonyi. Listen, we’ve been a bit rough on this guy for awhile. So we’ll give him his due, at least for a day (likely our last day on Earth, mind you), and give him a cool sounding name, aka, Robert Fucking Varkonyi.

Other notables that made it to the money include David Williams’ mom Shirley, who is still alive with around 150k. Both Tobey Maguire, who is still pulling his shielding face from camera crap from two years ago, and Sully Erna from Godsmack, who has impressively cashed in two straight Main Events.

The big question now is: Will ESPN make Tobey and Sully’s the featured table?

Maguire has an agreement with ESPN that he will NOT be put on camera unless he makes a deep run into the tournament. With this cashing and his pairing with another celeb in Sully, now would be a good time to pull the trigger. What a boost for poker to have a major A-list (and respected) player in Maguire to be featured along with well-known rocker Erna.

Big stacks big names right now include overall chip leader Robert Nehorayan (1M), Huck Seed (676k), Gus Hansen (670k), Peter "Nordberg" Feldman (585k), Darrell "Deep" Dicken (550k), Carlos Mortensen (510k), and Bill Edler (410k).
