WSOP 2015 Day 1C: Main Event Winners And Losers

WSOP 2015 Day 1C: Main Event Winners And LosersThe final starting day of this year’s WSOP Main Event has now been completed and after Day 1A attracted 741 entries, followed by 1,716 players on Day 1B, the traditionally busiest Day 1c saw a record turnout of 3,963 runners, representing the biggest ever starting day in the Main Event’s history. Despite a total turnout of 6,420 players overall, however, that figure was down on the 6,683 players who competed in 2014, and the third lowest tally of the past 10 years. Furthermore, the $7.68 million first place prize will also be the lowest payout in a decade, mostly due to 1,000 places being paid this year.
Nevertheless, WSOP executive director Ty Stewart was still impressed by the turnout, and following a leaky ceiling disrupting play yesterday, commented: “You just can’t rain on this parade. Two things are certain in poker: There’s 52 cards in a deck and 6,000-plus in the Main Event.”
By the end of Day 1C a total of 584 players had hit the rail, including former ME winners Jerry Yang, Joe Cada, Greg Merson, Martin Jacobson, and 2013/14 final tablist Niner Mark Newhouse. Also falling by the wayside was Patrik Antonius, Jen Harman, Mike Sexton, and Jeff Madsen, after which he tweeted:
“it hurts a lot but was a great summer — busting the main just suckkksss — slowly hitting me. Ouchie.. probably for the best I’m out of the main– Haven’t spent enough quality time at Sapphire lately.”
Ending the day as chip leader was John Gorsuch on a 198,100 stack, followed by Zarik Megerdichian (180,400), and James Juvancic (166,350). Amongst the big names pros also progressing through to Day 2 was a number of past ME winners, including Jamie Gold (81,000), Joe Hachem (63,500), Peter Eastgate (22,100), and Phil Hellmuth (79,725). Joining this illustrious line-up is Daniel Negreanu (73,825), Allen Cunningham (65,025), Michael Mizrachi (64,350), Phil Ivey (22,800), and Betrand Grospellier (22,375).
The survivors of Day 1c will now take a day’s break before returning to the action on Day 2c, while Day 2AB is due to get underway later on today.
