Las Vegas, NV - Standing on the upper row of the aluminum rafters looking down upon the expansive poker combat zone that is the 2006 World Series of Poker is normally not a very good vantage point. But at 7:38 pm on Sunday, July 2, 2006 - it very well might have been the best seat in the house.

WSOP Event #2 $1,500 NL Final Table: Cantu Can Do It

Before the second event of the 2006 WSOP began, history had already been made. 2,776 players entered the $1,500 buy-in event. Aside from last year's main event, that was the second largest field for any WSOP tournament. Harrah's also accepted over 400 hundred alternates. I suspected that over 3,000 players wanted to play in the first open event of the 2006 WSOP but the Rio could not accommodate the extra players. They were already seating 11 players at some tables and could not fit any more.
