Having graced the shores of the UK last week, the WPT bandwagon has packed its bags and made the short trip across to Venice.
Setting up camp inside the world’s oldest casino, Casino di Venezia in Ca’ Vendramin Calergi, the €3,300 WPT Venice Main Event attracted a number of familiar faces currently honing their skills on the European circuit ahead of the WSOP.In total just 65 players braved the Arctic conditions to play in Day 1A of the event. Indeed, while the depth was somewhat lacking – due in large part to the weather conditions hampering people’s travel – the tournament certainly made up for in talent.As the day wore on and the initial 65 whittled its way down to 32, it was Marvin Rettenmaier (129,600) and Mike Sexton (99,900) who posed the biggest threat Stephen Behm’s chip lead.At the close of play the amateur player had bagged 188,000 chips but in summarising his day he admitted that it was “all a blur”. Regardless of his recollections, Behm managed to survive longer than some of his more illustrious opponents, including Ludovic Lacay, Martin Staszko and Andrey Pateychuk. Day 1B kicks off later today and many of those eliminated on Day 1A are expected to exercise their re-entry option today.
