A lot of the teams have been slow filtering into the room this afternoon and so a lot of tables have started short handed. The most extreme example of this is the table that Bruno Portaro is playing at.
He has started with only one other team at his table, situated to his right. Portaro has been using position to his advantage and has taken down some early pots.

Trung Tran/ Abel Cabrera
Jonathan "xMONSTERxDONGx" Karamalikis/ Ben Delaney

Play is set to begin in just under half an hour for the No Limit Hold'em Teams Event.
Each team will consist of two players. At the commencement of play, the first partner will begin with a 5,000 chip start bank. At the completion of the first level partners will swap and the second partner will receive the remainder of the start bank (another 5,000), bringing the total to 10,000 chips per team.
If the first partner is eliminated during the first level, the second partner will enter immediately and play the remainder of the first level and the entire second level, before the eliminated partner resumes play in the third level (hopefully not getting eliminated again - otherwise the team is done!).
