Some familiar faces have made their way to the Amazon to support the chip leader, Anton Morgenstern. Liv Boeree, Sorel Mizzi and Philipp Gruissem are on the rail, beers in hand, and cheering on their friend. Gruissem entered the tournament area and had a brief chat with Morgenstern and some of his tablemates, and the ESPN camera crew took notice. Ironically, Phil Hellmuth, the man best known for boosting camera time in a tournament he's not playing, was nearby doing his own interview about Carlos Mortensen. "El Matador" is playing at the ESPN stage.
Among the others seen watching the action in the Amazon Room tonight include Matt Stout, Max Steinberg, Jesse Silvia, and Alban Juen. We expect to see many more as the night rolls along.
