Day 1 of the 2011 WSOP Main Event has four starting days to accommodate the huge number of players who enter the tournament.

Losers
Amongst the 821 players who saw their WSOP Main Event aspirations come to an end today was Chris Moneymaker. Since winning the Main Event, the 2003 Champion has cashed a total of 3 times at WSOP event for $32,041  but hasn’t cashed now since 2007.
Also Joining him on the rail was Roberto Romanello, Robert Mizrachi, Hoyt Corkins, David Benyamine, Chad Brown, James Akenhead and Steve Billirakis.
2011 bracelet winners Allen Bari, Jason Somerville and Fabrice Soulier also bid goodbye to the WSOP for another year.
Winners
Leading those players making through to Day 2a was accomplished pro Kevin Song, with more than $3.2 million in live cashes and a WSOP bracelet to his name. Song managed to grow his 30k starting stack to 163,325 by the end of the day’s play.
Other big stacks included Adam Junglen (127k), Ted Forest (91k), Humberto Brenes (90k), and JP Kelly (80k).

Going into the Main Event there were concerns that the fields would be greatly diminished on account of the lack of satellites previously run by online poker rooms.
Now with just the final entrance Day 1d to come, of which 1,800 people have already registered, the total entries for WSOP 2011 Main Event currently stands at 
5,856. Officials believe that tally could rise to above 7,000 players by the end of the day, which would then place it in the three biggest WSOP Main Events ever.
