2014 WSOP Day 1B: Main Event Winners And Losers

2014 WSOP Day 1B: Main Event Winners And LosersThe World Series of Poker Main Event is spread over three starting days, with Day 1a attracting just 771 players. Day 1b then saw 2,144 players hand over their $10k entry fees to create a combined field of 2,915 competitors, but more than 3,437 players will now have to enter on Day 1c if the showcase tournament is to match last year’s field of 6,352. Nevertheless, the winner of the 2014 WSOP Main Event can still expect to earn at least $10 million, as this figure  has already been guaranteed by the organizers.
Amongst the big name pros hitting the rail on Day 1b of the Main Event was Dan Shak, David Sands, Kevin Saul, Sofia Lovgren, Scott Clements, Bertrand Grospellier, Vivek Rajkumar, Dan O’Brien, Philipp Gruissem, Joseph Cheong, Nick Cassavetes, Mike Leah, Robert Mizrachi and Frank Kassela.
All-time online poker tournament winner Chris Moorman also was unable to gain any traction and eventually exited after driving his A-Q into Volpe’s Q-Q, after which he tweeted:
“Bust before day1 dinner break. Wish I could say I bluffed it all off but I just couldn’t win a hand #TILT.”
On the flipside, Trey Luxemburger managed to drive his 30k starting stack up to 193,450 to finish the day as the chip leader, with Sarkis Hakobian (190,125), and Ryan Buckholtz (189,000) close behind.
Notable pros also thriving on Day 1b included Joe Kuether (135,675), Erik Seidel (134,025) Matt Affleck (122,150), Marvin Rettenmaier (115,000), Brian Hastings (100,350), and Phil Galfond (91,000), to name but a few.
Also surviving, but on short-stacks, was Dan Harrington (35,200), Huck Seed (27,750) and Allen Cunningham (26,325).
Day 1c of the $10k WSOP Main Event starts at the Rio later on today, so don’t forget to check here tomorrow for your daily update of winners and losers.
