This event has seen many chat adepts keep their whole tables involved in hands whether their own chips are at risk or not. There's barely an ipod to be seen and after eight hour-long levels some rivalries and friendships have spiced up the action on tables that have kept a steady line-up.
John Hammersmith open-jammed all in for 106,000. Action folded to Ivo Donev, who was tapping at his phone (he received a telling-off from the dealer and swerved a player's joking suggestion that his hand should be dead). Phone down, he thought for a while, then said, "Jesus. Jesus - it's the first time I make a good laydown. Nines."
No one else called Hammersmith and he said, "Pocket threes," throwing his cards towards the dealer. They hit a stack of chips, however, and flipped over as to much hilarity.
