In a scene reminiscent of the scooter convention held earlier, a crowd of seniors has begun to congregate near the PokerNews reporting desk. The topic of conversation this time around is the TV screen hanging above the tournament floor. With the prizepool and payout information now being shown, the players are fervently discussing the issue of the money bubble, with many apparently prepared to start folding their way to a WSOP cash.
Despite the last payout of 396th place being displayed on a running loop, some of the seniors is the vicinity seem to be a bit confused. We just overheard one women who was steadfast in her conviction that money bubble was close at hand. Despite other players trying to inform her of the correct number, she repeatedly stated with conviction "They're paying 900 places, it said so right there on the television screen."
With a gold bracelet still at stake, not to mention the 1st place prize of $557,435, we sincerely hope the cloud of confusion will be lifted before the cards are back in the air.
