    No thread yet on this, and it seems the interest is not where it was in years past for many, but I'm still a regular record-and-watch.

    The Tuesday night ESPN shows are at Day 7 now. German player Anton Morgenstern at one point had over $29 million and got cocky. In a very short span he has been drained down to $5 million. And there's still an hour in the telecast to go. Just an epic meltdown

    This is how far out of the poker loop I have been - do they still do the November 9 thing or do we already know who wins this main event?

    Nov. 4 starts the November Nine.

    I still watch poker on TV, OT, just there are so many tournaments televised I get them all mixed up and no longer is it "appointment TV" so I haven't followed the progression of the main event in a couple of years.

    Are there any interesting names left after Day 7?

    Carlos Mortensen and JC Tran are the two biggest names I see. They're down to 18 now for the telecasts, and they'll get down to the November Nine on next Tuesday night's telecast. BTW, Morgenstern busted out before they got down to two tables. He could have folded his way to the final table and got big-stack big head. His first mis-step on the telecast was re-raising with 8-7 offsuit against pocket aces. Cost himself almost 6 million on that hand and never even got to see a flop. From there it was all downhill.

    Didn't he lose $11 million or $12 million holding three of a kind? Ouch.

    Yeah, he had Ace-Four going up against pocket deuces. The flop came A-A-2, so he flopped trips but his opponent flopped 2s-full.
