A lot of talk at the tables about what the final tally is going to be for entrants at this year's Main Event -- and, of course, what that final prize pool will be. A player over in the Yellow section was just telling his table how he'd finished around 200th back in 2005, for which he noted he'd won about $39,000.
Interestingly, just a table over from that player is sitting someone with a pretty specific memory of the 2005 WSOP and its prize pool. He's wearing headphones, though, and so didn't hear the conversation nearby. There sits Steve Dannenmann, who finished second to Joe Hachem that year to win a cool $4.25 million of that event's $52.8 million prize pool.
