Three hundred sixty players started Event #1 of the WSOPE and by the time we had finished we had lost over two-thirds of the field. 80 players will return at 15.00 (CET) to start Day Two and heading the chip counts is Flavian Guennan. His mighty tussle with Alessandro Speranza, in the penultimate hand of the night, dramatically grasped the chip lead out of the hands of Benjamin Pollak, who was bagging up his chips while the action was still going on.
Other notable players through who made it through to Day Two include Phil Hellmuth, Daniel Negreanu, Vanessa Selbst, Peter Jetten and Anton Wigg.
Day Two will be at our second venue, the Le Criosette Casino Barriere, so make sure you turn up to the right place! For all of you people following the action in cyberspace nothing changes. Just make sure you are hear at 15.00 (CET) for all the very best action.
