A few Poker Hall of Famers are in action here on Day 1c including Phil Hellmuth, Bobby Baldwin, and Dan Harrington. In addition, fellow member TJ Cloutier, who played and survived Day 1a, has been making the rounds wishing various players luck. Needless to say, there is a lot of history at the Rio today.
