Quiet Floor

The tournament floor is fairly quiet right now. Most of the excitement is coming from the cash game side of the room. This is a function of a few different things: (1) only eight tournament tables are in action; (2) the blinds are still early and the stacks are still deep, so players haven't really loosened up their psyches enough yet to be chatty with their neighbors; and (3) no-limit hold'em players tend to be the least talkative of all types of poker players. We did hear Yvo Molin talking with the player on his left about cashout issues with various online poker sites.
