Yesterday marked the start of the WPT’s first televised event and when the cashiers’ desk had closed on Day 1A the total number of entrants had peaked at 142.
Among the pros eager to take part in the $3,500+$200 Legends of Poker event was the likes of Phil Laak, Faraz Jaka, Freddy Deeb and Gavin Griffin but as the day wore on none of the aforementioned players would survive. Indeed, by the time the tournament clock was stopped for the day just 56 players were able to bag up their chips ahead of Day 2. Leading the pack when all the chip counts were in was Barry Hutter with 212,400, which was enough to put him ahead of Nick Phoenix (207,700) and Joseph Cheong (188,100). Also making through the sessions with at least a smattering of chips was the familiar faces of Joe Serock (147,500), Matt Salsberg (90,000), Jason Koon (88,500) and Scott Clements (71,100). Today’s second opening session is expected to draw in even more players and push the prizepool well beyond the $1 million mark.
