2011 WSOP Day 1B: Main Event Winners And Losers

Day 1 of the 2011 WSOP Main Event is spread over four starting days to ensure a more manageable structure to the enormous tournament.
Day 1b managed to attract 978 entries of which 626 progressed through to Day 2b, where they will combine with 556 survivors from Day 1d.
Thus far, the two-day total of 1,875 entrants represents a 28% decrease over the same period last year.
It took 10 hours of play to lose 252 players from Day 1b of the Main Event. Amongst those players eliminated from the action was 2010 WSOP finalist Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi.
Losers
Mizrachi lost half his stack early on holding Jh-10h on a 4h-10d-Ah-10s board only to find his opponent was holding Ad-10c. He later busted on a hand where he held Kc-10c to Robin Fisher’s pocket nines.
Other notable names joining Michael Mizrachi on the rails included Justin “BoostedJ” Smith, Eric Froehlich, Ashton Griffin, Felipe Ramos, Tuan Le and Nacho Barbero. Also bowing out of this year’s WSOP were 2011 gold bracelet winners Andre Akkari and Rep Porter.
Winners
One player who wasn’t quite ready to bid good-bye to WSOP 2011 just yet was  bracelet winner Ben Lamb. The 26 year-old has already won $1.3 million from four cashes and eventually finished Day 1b as the chip-leader.
Other big names still in contention include Patrik Antonius, Dario Mineri, Max Lykov, Justin Bonomo, Galen Hall, Sam Stein, Andrew Lichtenberger, Bob Safai.  Players nursing short-stacks include Jake Cody, Erick Lindgren, John Racener, Eugene Katchalov and Tony Dunst.
Day 1c of the Main Event gets underway today at 12 p.m. Las Vegas time, so remember to check back here at OnlinePoker.net for your regular daily updates.
