Neil Channing and Tom McEvoy (above) were among the poker pros playing in today's $1500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout (Event #17) at the 2008 WSOP, which drew 1,000 players and a $1,365,000 total prize pool. First place will walk with $329,872.

More than six hours after the start and all but maybe two or three of the first round of shootouts are done. Everyone moving on cashes. Some of the notable players advancing to the second round of shootouts include Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, Antony Roux, Thor Hansen, and Noah Boeken.

Chris Vaughn from this scandal is also among those advancing.
