“I have the opportunity to go to my favorite online casino to play poker at any time, but I doubt I will ever see a situation like the one taking place right now in Chile,” said Mark Bentle, as he watched from his home in England. “I can’t believe these people have survived this long down there.”
Millions of people have tuned in to CNN, Fox News, ABC News, and other networks to capture the rescue live. Last night. shortly before midnight, the conclusion to the miner trapping began to unfold. The rescue workers started to pull out the thirty-three miners that were trapped, and the effort continued into Wednesday.
“I wouldn’t miss this for the world,” said online poker player Matt Schwarn, who was watching the event with his girlfriend. “Usually we are playing in an online tournament right now before work, but today we chose to watch a piece of history.”
