A full 10 levels were completed on Day 1 of Event #44: $3,000 6-Handed Limit Hold'em that saw a total of 162 players take to the felt. By the time all was said and done, only 78 players bagged up chips with Ray Henson leading the charge. Henson ended the day with a total of 243,000 chips, the only player with a stack over 200,000.

Henson has racked up five total cashes thus far through the 2021 World Series of Poker, including a final table appearance in the $1,500 Dealer's Choice event where he finished in third place. Henson is still seeking his first-ever WSOP gold bracelet and he has put himself in a good position to get the job done.

Some other big stacks to end Day 1 include Kevin Klassen (183,500), Anna Wroblewski (146,000), Anthony Zinno (138,000), and Jesse Lonis (122,500). Zinno has already doubled his number of WSOP bracelets this year with a total of four now and is currently in second place in the Player of the Year race.
