Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

The Mood in the Room

• Level 5: 200-400, 50 ante

With each player putting up $10,000 and going after the most prestigious prize in the poker world, you might think that the mood in the room would be tense and serious.

Quite the contrary, at least in the purple section, many of the tables are filled with smiles and laughter and the players seem to be having a really good time. One player who identified himself as "Big Ron" has his table (and the dealer) in stitches with his humorous banter.

We're only 45 minutes away from the end of the day so perhaps everyone is starting to (happily) realize that they've got a good shot of making Day 2 and are just trying to enjoy themselves.
