The players continue to trickle into the tournament floor. Dan Smith, who brought some sushi with him, just took his seat over at Table 9, which includes his peers Justin Bonomo and Isaac Haxton.
Meanwhile, David "ODB" Baker took his seat at the same table as Phil Ivey and John Juanda sat down at Table 18 with Jason Mercier and Joe Kuther. Juanda wasn't sure he'd be able to play this event as it started at 5 p.m. and his one-year-old son, who is with him and his wife here in Cannes, has messed up his sleep schedule a bit. Nonetheless, Juanda tore himself away and is in the field.
