WSOP Tournament of Champions

17 Left and One Day of Play... What to Do?

With almost two full tables of players remaining and only one more day of play scheduled, the powers that be at the WSOP are hastily putting together an alternate plan for playing down to a winner. Bringing the players back on Friday, July 2 at Noon was discussed, but that option was quickly scuttled as it not only conflicts with the $25,000 6-max event but also Howard Lederer's annual "World Series of BBQ" fundraiser at the Golden Nugget.

The latest we've heard (and this is of course unconfirmed), is that everyone will have to return at 10 a.m. on July 4th to play this tournament out. Not sure how well such an early start will go over with this crowd, who isn't used to getting up before Noon.
