Round 19 was the last of the day for Friday. Blinds 5000 / 10000 Ante 1000.

Leader has 3.1 million chips. Complete no-name, at least I never heard of him.

Many pro names on the 1 million and up list.

Hellmuth at 570K and Matusow at 550K...Craig Stein slightly ahead of both at 675K.

Jim McManus is still there. He's turned into quite the poker player.

Alan Cunningham is the one to watch, in my book.

This is the best name I have seen on the list: Graddus Terwiss Cha Van

Wow. Maybe they got it backwards and it's supposed to be Charles Van Graddus Terwiss.

Hard to say. Some of those Irish have pretty funky names.

Play suspended last night while still in level 24, down to 79 players.

Blinds are 15K-30K, antes 4K.

Leader 5.8M chips. Twelve players at 3M or more.

Mouth: 1.169M

Brat: 721K, starts Day 6 with a one-orbit penalty for his blowup at the end of round 5 -- his pre-flop reraise with A K off got called by 4d 10d, then the caller paired the 10's and bet huge after Brat checked.

Brat showed his discard, Mouth told the caller, "Show the bluff", called showed his diamonds and Phil went berserk as the crowd roared with laughter.

Good. I hope he's on tilt today, the arrogant prick.

P.S. Craig Stein hanging in at 440K, but is in terrible shape and in danger of getting chewed up by antes and blinds -- my guess is he needs to pick a hand right away and push when play starts up today. I won't second guess him for a minute, though -- if he busts out next, he gets a nifty $77,200. Considering who he's up against, that's a huge accomplishment.

Great book. His book on his trip to the Mayo Clinic was disgusting, but great.

Craig Stein Eliminated in 39th Place ($154,400)
Andrew Brokos raisedto 135,000, Darus Suharto called on the button, and Craig Stein moved all in for 580,000 from the big blind. Brokos folded and Suhato called.

Stein   AJ

Suhato   QQ

Suhato flopped top set when it came down Q 10 2   , but Stein still had hope with a flush draw. The turn, though was the 6, the river was the 2 and Stein's Main Event came to a close. He'll leave us in 39th place, collecting $154,400.

Why would you want the hole card cam? I would think any real poker player would want to try to make his own read......The hole card cam sucks and should only be used to show the hands after the pot is won......Poker After Dark shows every hand.....thats why I like it......The problem with watching poker on TV is that when there are 10 minutes left to go in the show anyone with a brain knows who won and all the drama is gone.....The WSOP live on PPV is the only way to go....But they need about a 5 minute delay...a 15 minute delay if Sam Farha would happen to make the final table.....
