It's a busy night inside the Rio, and our final table is buried over here in the Orange section of the Amazon Room. It's the only final table in play today, though, and these two players are pretty well liked amongst their poker circles.
Those two factors are evidenced by the sizable (and rather boisterous) cheering section that has assembled itself along the L-shaped rail surrounding the table. Kevin MacPhee, Richard Grace, Matt Stout, Alex Bolotin, Chris Moorman, Carter King, Billy Kopp, and Welch's dashing (and dancing) wife Kristin have all been spotted bouncing back and forth around the outskirts of the featured table here.
Also, it's worth noting that Ryan keeps a blog here on PokerNews, and you can check out what he had to say heading into today's Day 3 right here.
