Big Turnout For Day 1c of World Series of Poker Main EventPublished on July 8th, 2010 5:20 am EST
2,314 players registered to play on Day 1c of the 2010 World Series of Poker main event, virtually guaranteeing that the tournament will finish with over 7,000 total entrants.
Of the 2,300+ players that played on Day 1c, approximately 1,670 managed to make it through to Day 2.
Near the top of the Day 1c leaderboard was a very familiar name, as Johnny Chan managed to finish the day second in chips (163,700). Chan finished the day about 5k chips behind the Day 1c chip leader, Mathiu Sauriol (168,900).
Some of the other prominent names who did very well on Wednesday included:
Robert Mizrachi, 134k
David Williams, 112k
Hoyt Corkins, 103k
Lex Veldhuis, 92k
David Pham, 82k
Men Nguyen, Huck Seed and Phil Hellmuth were just a handful of the names who weren’t so lucky on Day 1c, as all three players hit the rail early in the day.
A total of 4,928 players (1,125 for Day 1a, 1,489 for Day 1b and 2,314 for Day 1c) have turned out so far for the main event.
Day 1d is expected to be the busiest day of the four, as 1,800 people had already registered by 5 pm on Wednesday evening.
Including the 1,800 people that have already registered to play on Day 1d, the total turnout for the main event is already sitting at a very healthy 6,728 players. With hundreds more likely to register on Thursday, the total turnout should end up being well north of 7,000 players.
