Bill Gazes leads WSOP circuit event

Bill Gazes leads WSOP circuit event

Tuesday, 16 December 2008

Jason Mercier, Isabelle Mercier; Bill Gazes, Kirsty Gazes; Howard Lederer; Annie Duke. It’s weird how the only actual siblings in poker are the two who don’t share surnames. Family tree musings aside, the news: Bill Gazes (Aussie Millions final tablist Kirsty is actually his ex-wife in case you were wondering) is currently leading the $5,150 WSOP-C Main Event at Harrah’s Atlantic City.

By the end of Day 1, only 36 players remained as the small field was thinned almost to the money bubble. Gazes had a lot to do with that, accruing a stack of $336,700. Other big names present included Shaun Deeb, who busted when his 66 failed to outdraw the JJ of Mike Leah.

The top ten in chip counts from Day 1 play: ?
Bill Gazes – 336,700 ?
Mike Leah – 274,400 ?
Allen Bari – 240,000 ?
Chris Reslock – 184,200 ?
Joanne Monteavaro – 177,300 ?
Matt Matros – 171,500 ?
Eugene Fouksman – 151,000 ?
Kyle Bowker – 138,100 ?
Charles Furey – 112,000 ?
Chau Minh Nguyen – 110,700
