As tournament director Jack Effel announced the anticipated words of shuffle up and deal, players were still flocking into the Empire to take their seats for Day 1b of Event 1.
After some notable British players made it through Day 1a yesterday - including Roland de Wolfe, J P Kelly and Ian Frazer - some fresh looking faces have rocked up for Day 1b to try and join their fellow compatriots in Day 2 tomorrow.These include November niner James Akenhead, Barny Boatman, Joe Beevers, John Tabatabai, Liv Boeree, Davi Colclough and many more. In particular, Bluff Europe’s very own Alex ‘Pickleman’ Rousso will be looking to make a splash in these shark-infested waters of Day 1b. Other big names from across the seven seas include last years WSOPE Main event winner John Juanda and Full Tilt pro Chris Ferguson - who sit beside each other on the same table. Ferguson has already made some early moves and sits with almost 8K up from the original 3K starting stack. Howard Lederer, Jeff Lisandro, Alen Cunningham, Antonio Esfandiari, Arnaud Mattern and Annette Obrestad all bless us with their presence today.
