Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Here They Come


A few minutes into the level the doors finally opened to non-family-and-friend spectators. They came running across the emptied out Amazon Room hoping to secure choice spots along the rail or in the upper spectator box. Ty Stewart, an imposing figure near the entrance to the feature table area, immediately put his hands in the air and started calmly (but loudly) instructing the spectators to, "Calm down! Calm down!"

Watching them enter the Amazon Room through one narrow chokepoint really does look like someone has taken their proverbial finger out of a proverbial dam. In moments we went from a strangely quiet Amazon Room to five deep on the rail.
