David Williams leads NAPT Mohegan Sun

David Williams leads NAPT Mohegan Sun

Thursday, 8 April 2010

A total of 716 players paid the $5,000 buy in for the third leg of the PokerStars North American Poker Tour event at Mohegan Sun yesterday.

The field numbered such luminaries as Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan and 2009 World Champion Joe Cada but by the close of the opening day none could match David Williams. The 2004 WSOP Main Event runner up had a slightly unusual way of keeping his mind occupied throughout the day though.

Rather than some soothing Bach or Debussy on on his iPod, Williams downloaded the mini-series V and watched a number of episodes. Given that his stack grew from 30,000 to 230,900 it could become required viewing.

Others big names still in the hunt include Gavin Griffin, Daniel Negreanu, Vanessa Rousso and Jason Mercier. Fortune didn't favour Greg Raymer and Barry Greenstein though who were among yesterday's high profile casualties.

443 players will return for Day 2 later today.
