Update WSOPE 2010: 6-Max NLHE Winners And Losers On Day 1

The World Series of Poker Europe 2010 got off to a great start on Tuesday, after Event #1: £2,500 Six-Max NLHE managed to attract 244 players to the opening tournament.
With 24 places being paid and £170,802 going to the eventual winner, the event saw a whole host of pros entering the event at London’s Empire Casino, all hoping for a chance to win a WSOP bracelet.
After almost ten hours of play, the original starting field of 244 players was reduced to just 31 hopefuls, and included amongst those players who found themselves out on Day 1 was Phil Ivey.
Having tripled his stack earlier on in the competition, Ivey got his whole 30,100 stack in holding pocket 8’s on a 7 high flop with two clubs showing. His opponent Peter Wood decided to go with his Ac-3c flush draw and hit the 8c on the river to send Ivey to the rail.
Other players who also found themselves out on Day 1 included Tom Dwan, Howard Lederer, Chris Ferguson, Phil Hellmuth, Erik Seidel, Annette Obrestad, John Juanda, Frank Kassela, Men Nguyen, Antonio Esfandiari, Mike Matusow, Brandon Cantu, Sorel Mizzi, and Justin “BoostedJ” Smith.
On the other side of the coin, Canadian Andrew Pantling found himself atop of the leaderboard with 106,100 chips going into today’s action.
Just a few thousand chips behind, though, is the most experienced player left in the event Swedish pro Chris Bjorin with around $4,657,054 in live tournament cashes.
Other players still in with a chance of WSOP glory include Jeffrey Lisandro, Chris Moorman, Javed Abrahams, Chris Bjorin, Tai Tran, Liv Boeree, Praz Bansi, Bryn Kenney, Andrew Lichtenberger and Phil Laak.
The players are currently on an overnight break and will return to the arena at 2:00 p.m. GMT on Wednesday, where they will play down to the final table of six.
