(Way) Outside the WSOP – Main Event Day 1b

by , Jul 4, 2009 | 7:24 am

Day 1a of the Main Event is in the books, with 821 players remaining from the 1,116 who started the day. The reported chip leader is Eric Cloutier at 150,750. Other notable names with chips include: Jason Alexander (89,575), Pokerati’s Tom Schneider (79,600), John Hennigan (76,250), Vitaly Lunkin (68,300), Someone who didn’t report (69,500), Jimmy Fricke (63,425), and Andy Black (56,475). To see the entire list of chip counts, check it out here.

Day 1b gets underway at noon today, and will surely be the smallest field of the four day 1’s, with a chance the field will be under 1,000 when the registrations are calculated sometime after the dinner break after level 2 this afternoon. To see if that happens, follow the live updates over at www.wsop.com and more stuff from Pokerati during the day.

    Dude, I think you’re wrong about it being the smallest day. Wanna put some money on it? I’ll take the over on 1,116.

    $25 says today will be under 1116, book it. Last year’s day 1b (also on July 4) drew a field of 1,158.

    Awesome, now all I have to do is buy in a few hundred people and have them not show … oh wait, nevermind, that won’t work.

    OK, cool. C’mon satellite winners and PokerStars withdrawals!
