The Bright Blue Lights of the Mothership Beckon
After a flurry of bustouts saw nine players hit the rail in just over thirty minutes, the final 18 players have hit the brakes, perhaps sensing that they are on the verge of reaching the final table at the World Series of Poker.
With raucous cheers being let loose from the brightly lit Mothership stage, each on signalling the success or failure of the final tablists playing in Event #53: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em, those remaining in Event #54 are beginning to envision themselves under the same spotlight.
There are just 46 minutes left to play in the evening, and as the rapid fire declarations of "all in... and a call!" have been curtailed for the time being, there is a good chance the race to the final table will carry over into Day 3 tomorrow.
