WSOPE 2010 Main Event: Day 1A Winners And Losers

On Day 1A of the 2010 WSOP Europe Main Event, 137 players turned up on the first day of the competition hoping to carve out a slice of WSOP glory for themselves. Twelve hours later, just 78 hopefuls had managed to survive and secure a place through to Saturday’s communal Day 2.
Amongst the 59 players to be eliminated on Day 1A of the £10,350 buy-in tournament was Phil Hellmuth who made another of his now traditional showboat entrances.
Despite harnessing the power of 11 Lady Gaga lookalikes singing “Poker Face, Hellmuth found himself on the rails a few hours later when his starting stack of 30k chips had dwindled to just 6k. He eventually was eliminated after pushing his remaining chips with pocket 9’s only to run into Leo Margets’ pocket aces.
Other notable players joining Hellmuth on the sidelines include Daniel “Jungleman12” Cates, Annette Obrestad, Howard Lederer, Brandon Cantu, Andy Bloch,  and Vanessa Selbst. Also among the casualties were 2010 November Niners Sorel Mizzi, Jonathan Duhamel, Filippo Candio and Joseph Cheong.
On the other hand, leading the Day 1A field was Frenchman Nicolas Levi who finished Thursday on 153,850 chips.
Amongst those pros progressing in style to the next round were Bruno Fitoussi (120,250), Faraz “The-Toilet” Jaka (120,125) and Allen Cunningham (84,275).
Other big name pros with their hopes very much intact are Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, John Juanda, Jason Mercier, Huck Seed, Erik Seidel, and Jeff Lisandro.
Day 1B of the WSOPE 2010 Main Event gets underway at 12:00 p.m today, with the survivors of the two first day flights meeting up on Day 2 on Saturday. Included among today’s competitors are such players as Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan, Daniel Negreanu, James Akenhead and JP Kelly.
