Chris Moneymaker busted out of the tournament twice already, but registration is still open until the end of Level 9.

Moneymaker took his seat at his new table and saw the small blind raise to 2,500. Moneymaker called and they saw a {Q-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} flop. They both checked and Moneymaker took it down on the turn with a bet.

Knobloch Eliminates a Player

DegenOnTour • Nível 8: 500-1,000, 100 ante

The player under the gun raised to 2,100 and five players ended up calling, including Mike Dentale on the button and Michael Knobloch from the big blind.

The flop came down {J-Spades}{7-Clubs}{2-Clubs} and the small blind checked to Knobloch, who put in a bet of 7,500. It folded to the player in the hijack and he pushed all in. The bet was 25,000 and Knobloch was the only one that called.

Michael Knobloch: {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}
Hijack: {Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts}

The turn and the river were complete bricks for both players and Knobloch took down the pot to rise over the 100,000 chip mark.

Three Times Bigger

DegenOnTour • Nível 7: 400-800, 100 ante

The final flight of the Giant is truly enormous in size. After six levels the field has grown to 3,867 and with that, it is three times bigger than the previous biggest Giant flight of this WSOP. Day 1a got 1,289 entries and was the biggest flight, but today's tournament completely crushed the number of entries.

The late registration is still open for another three hours and the lines haven't gotten any smaller over the last couple of hours.

As we stood next to Jeff Gross at his table over in the Brasilia room, we heard a lot of noise coming from one of the other tables in the Giant. There was a player all in and a side pot and a player needing change.

The floor was called and Mike Dentale tried to make sure it all went right as he just joined the tournament and is seated at that table.

Jeff Gross seemed to be playing the $1,000 online event at the same time as he is playing in the Giant.

DegenOnTour • Nível 5: 200-400, 50 ante

Farukh Tach

Dutch poker player Farukh Tach was sitting with just 3,200 as we passed his table. When we walked by the second time, all of his chips were in the middle and he had to win a coinflip with {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs} against {K-}{J-}.

The board ran out {5-Spades}{10-Clubs}{3-Spades}{4-Hearts}{4-Clubs} and Tach started stacking his newly won chips, while also still keeping an eye on the Giant registration line.
