Update Day 1C: WSOP 2010 Main Event Winners And Losers

Update Day 1C: WSOP 2010 Main Event Winners And LosersDay 1 of the 2010 WSOP Main Event has four separate starting days in order to provide a more manageable structure for the huge tournament.
Day 1a drew in an initial field of 1,125 hopefuls, Day 1b a further 1,489 and by Day 1c the field had grown to a massive 2,314 competitors. With the total entrants for the first three Days currently standing at 4,928, just 1,567 players entering the final Day 1d will be enough to ensure a bigger tournament than WSOP 2009 (6,494 entrants).
Out of the 2,314 players entering on Day 1c, around 650 were eliminated by the end of play with roughly 1,670 competitors progressing through to Day 2. Amongst an army of poker pros who were unable to clear the first hurdle were
Huck Seed, Men Nguyen, Dario Minieri, Shaun Deeb, Jeff Madsen, Faraz Jaka, Scott Fischman, Isabelle Mercier, David Benefield, Jerry Yang, Mike Sowers, Cory Carroll, Matt Woodward and Alexandre Gomes.
Phil Hellmuth was perhaps the biggest name to also see his hopes dashed on Day 1c, as he was eliminated after six hours of play when he ran his pocket J’s into his opponent’s Q’s. He  later mentioned on his Twitter page; “played great, cards were not great.”
At the other end of the scales, the big names managing to extend their initial $30,000 starting stack were Robert Mizrachi (134k), David Williams (112k), Hoyt Corkins (103k), Lex Veldhuis (92k) and David Pham (82k).
Other notable names still very much in contention include last year’s champion Joe Cada, Patrik Antonius, Isaac Baron, Lauren Kling, Barny Boatman, Billy Kopp, Michael DeMichele, and Christian Harder.
With just one more entrance day available, Day 1d is shaping out to be the busiest yet with 1,800 people having already registered by late Wednesday afternoon. The eventual tally for the WSOP 2010 Main Event is now expected to be well in excess of 7,000 players.
