WSOPE Event 1: £1,500 No Limit Hold'em, Day 1a - Look Who's In Town!

Friday, 19 September 2008

It's good to see no one could be bothered to play the opening event. OK, so now we're taking the tongue out of the cheek and giving you a run through those spotted in the opening event in this year's WSOP Europe.

One table in particular is particularly tough, with Chris Ferguson and John Juanda lining up against a selection of players wondering if they walked under any ladders on the way to the casino. Other super star players spotted so far include Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Barry Greenstein, Layne Flack, and Max Pescatori.

The Brits are also represented in force, with Neil Channing, Nik Persaud, Ian Frazer and Priyan Demel in town. Liv Boeree is in town too, on a tricky table with Msrs. Channing, Pescatori and Flack all circling her. Bluff columnist Dr Tom Sambrook is perched two to the left of Barry Greenstein too, so he's in for an entertaining day.

One man seems to be flagging a little already though, as our favourite toast dropper, Richard 'Ashby' Chufty has resorted to massages in the second level. What a wimp!
