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

Update Day 1D: WSOP 2010 Main Event Winners And LosersThe last registration day of the 2010 WSOP Main Event is complete and with 2,391 entrants showing up for Day 1d, the final numbers list for the event is the second biggest ever at 7,319 players.
With the total prize pool for the tournament now standing at $68.8 million, the eventual winner can look forward to collecting a cool $8.94 million first place pay-out, as well as capturing the most coveted prize in the whole of poker.
Out of the 2,391 entrants turning out for Day 1d, around 1,750 survived to book a place to Day 2. Amongst those pros who weren’t able to make the most of their 30,000 chip starting stack and found themselves out of the competition were Justin “BoostedJ” Smith, John Juanda, LAPT champ Jose “Nacho” Barbero, Joe Hachem, Sorel Mizzi, Allen Kessler and Joe Cassidy.
Conversely, those big name pros managing to carve out for themselves an early lead include chip leader of the day Steve Billirakis with 187K in chips, David Benyamine (133K), Vanessa Rousso (111K), and Josh Arieh (103K).
Other players very much in contention are Jason Mercier (95K), Frank Kassela (83K), Kara Scott (69K), Humberto Brenes (65K) and Barry Greenstein (53K).
Phil Ivey is hoping for another deep run in the Main Event after his final table appearance at last year’s competition, but has had a slow start and is sitting on practically the same amount of chips as he started with at the beginning of the day.
With all four day one’s having now been played, about 5,000 competitiors remain out of the 7,319 starting line-up. Today’s Day 2a will now combine the remaining field of players from Day 1a and 1c, while Day 2b is reserved for Day 1b and 1d.
As the field is whittled down further and the excitement continues to mount, WSOP vice president Ty Stewart, commenting on the enduring success of the competition said:
“I just think that the main event continues to transcend the (poker tournament) category. People are pretty obsessed these days about fame, fortune and celebrity, and that’s something that’s 100 percent guaranteed at the main event.”
