"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."
Due to a hilarious naivety in re: the amount of time I'd have to do things other than play poker and the general difficulty of navigating the vast sea of humanity that was day 1B of the WSOP updates were obviously not forthcoming. We finished at around 6 or 7 AM EST.
In brief: I live but have only increased my stack from 10k to 15k. At one point it was around 26k but I got cute bluffing and lost a big chunk. No one of note was at my table -- though a few players were clearly very good -- though Ron Jeremy sat at the one next to me. He busted out around 10. Hellmuth, Brunson, Mizrachi, and many others are gone. Annie Duke, however, is not. She's sitting three to my left on my table for Tuesday.
More detail later.
