It was a case of quality of quantity as far as the field for the $5k No Limit Hold'em event was concerned with an array of top players at virtually every table at the Rio.
A total of 792 players started the $5k No Limit Hold'em event with just 225 set to return for day two tomorrow. Leading the way was Chino Rheem whose relentlessly aggressive play earned him a massive stack by the close of play.Joining him in the upper echelons of the opening day leaderboard are Antonio Esfandiari, Tony G and Britain's Sam Trickett. A host of big names are still in the hunt for the $818,959 first prize including TJ Cloutier, Chris Ferguson, Annette Obrestad, Barny Boatman, Scotty Nguyen and Phils Ivey and Hellmuth.One player who won't be returning tomorrow though is Barry Greenstein. The Bear ended up at a table with son Joe Sebok and it was a case of the apprentice overcoming the master as Barry busted out early and Joe went on a heater to end the day near the top of the chip counts.The action resumes at 10.30pm tonight UK time. Join us for updates tomorrow.
