Every once in awhile, against the odds, two people that are friends or rivals happen to face each other early in a Day 1 tournament. It has to happen sometimes, right? Well today it is happening a lot. Fellow Brit's Sam Trickett and Liv Boeree are seated right next to each other, as are fellow Full Tilt Pro's Eli Elezra and David Benyamine. Funny men Gavin Smith and Andy Black find themselves opposite each other and just days after squaring off in the final three tables of the $10,000 Pot Limit Hold'em Event, Jason Somerville and Chris Moorman will once again have the chance to outwit each other.
As the day advances and players bust and tables break, we will continue to keep an eye on this developing trend.
