With fewer and fewer tables in play in the rapidly emptying Brasilia Room, it stands to reason that a name pro might find himself seated across from a player of equal stature. Such is the nature of the beast that is tournament poker at the game's highest level.
The scene on Table #31 in the Silver section, however, is bordering on the absurd, as no less than three WSOP bracelet holders are playing together. Joining Erick Lindgren, Dan Kelly, and Steve Zolotow in this fearsome foursome is Paul Wasicka, and while he has yet to score that elusive first piece of bling, he only finished as the runner-up in the 2006 Main Event, falling short only to Jaime Gold during that man's infamous reign as the luckiest player on the planet.
With each holding a healthy chip stack, we expect there will be a few confrontations at this table before the night has ended.
