Daniel is starting Day 1B today at the $25K WPT Championship Event at Bellagio.I'm not sure if we'll have any updates directly from Daniel today but Cardplayer and the WPT website will be providing updates.Today has about 50% more players in it than yesterday did. Somebody smarter than I am will have to say whether that's a good or bad thing for those who are playing today.Table 55: Daniel Negreanu, Barry Shulman, Blake Cahail - This is Daniel's starting table today.Good Luck Daniel and any other FCPers who are playing today. Hopefully they'll join HoosierAlum who survived Day 1A on Day 2 tomorrow.EDIT: Daniel is sending Matt updates and he's posting them here.Daniel:3:20 EST PM - "I only recognize two faces at my table.
