Update on Annie Duke Has Issues
We ran into Brian Balsbough and one of the ESPN producers who explained that the announcement that got Annie all riled up wasn’t entirely accurate, which is another way of saying it wasn’t true. What the announcer was trying to say is that they were down to half the tables in the entire room, which would be half the field if they had actually started with all the tables being used, which wasn’t the case, which is why it wasn’t accurate, which is why we have to use all these which’s. So rather than being down to under 900 when that announcement was made they were really more like at 1100. According to ESPN, the plan now is to play down to 500 players or through 6 levels, which ever occurs first.
