HEADLINE: Poker Madness Continues at 2007 WSOP

Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi is one of many in the field of the $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em with Rebuys event at the 2007 World Series of Poker.

Day 5 of the 2007 World Series of Poker is underway with one of the most interesting events as far as table action goes. The $1,000 No-Limit with Rebuys always attracts pros with deep pockets looking to outlast their “poorer” table mates.

It’s not unusual to see players go “blind” all-in looking to double-up, knowing that they can rebuy. In years past, one could walk into the poker room and hear a chorus of dealers yelling “rebuy” from all corners of the room.

The rebuy chips that players purchase in advance have eliminated this echo of the past but will most likely not hamper Daniel “Kid Poker” Negreanu in the slightest. He rebought an astounding 48 times last year.

On a quick lap around the floor we caught a glimpse of quite a few big names including Phil Ivey, Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi, Isaac Haxton, Freddy Deeb, Barry Greenstein, Chad Brown and Greg Raymer.

Other notes from the floor:

- Jean Robert Ballande was seen wearing a World Poker Tour t-shirt, which is an interesting choice for a televised World Series Of Poker event.

- Kevin “BeL0WaB0Ve” Saul and Sorel “imper1um” Mizzi are seated at the same table. No word on if they have recognized each other without the benefit of avatars.

- Like we told you, Bodog pro Josh Arieh is back at the poker tables just over 12 hours after ending his day in the $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud event.

- Two 2006 Team Bodog members are in the crowd. Leif Force won $1,154,527 for an 11th place finish at the Main Event last year. Hopefully, he won’t burn through whatever is left in rebuy tournaments (we saw him in the $5,000 Omaha rebuy event yesterday). Ethan Foulkes qualified through Bodog and parlayed his entry into $2,296 for a 256th place finish in a $1,500 No-Limit tourney last year.

- Shannon Elizabeth is here again, fulfilling her commitment to play every event possible, and like some sort of poker Baywatch babe was seen running through the room headed to the ATM to get more cash for rebuys. It was definitely slow-motion in our minds (can’t you just hear it, “I’ll be ready. Never you fear”).

Anyway, stay tuned for more live updates from the 2007 World Series of Poker.
