$2000 + $200 Championship Event
$500,000 Guaranteed Prize Pool (Day 1B)

Jeff Green (2nd from left) Cheering on the Red, White & Blue

The USA vs Ghana World Cup Soccer game dominates most of the monitors in the Poker Room (except the ones that lists the Bad Beat Jackpot @ $153,160).

After players fold, many have their eyes on the game and there's a collective groan every time the Americans miss a scoring opportunity. But when Landon Donovan ties the game on a penalty kick, the room erupts in celebration.

U.S. 1 Ghana 1 (Second Half).

Because there's no audio from the monitors, outside of the brief outbursts, the primary sound in the room is the steady shuffling of chips.

Level 5 (150/300/50 ante continues).
