A staggering 3,200 players turned out for Event #13: $600 Pot Limit Omaha Deepstack, a record attendance for such a tournament. After the completion of 22 levels, only 117 players remained, and nobody had more chips than Aaron Ang.

Ang bagged up 2,765,000, and was one of four players to finish Day 1 with over two million chips. Giorgiy Skhuluhiya (2,600,000), Soheb Porbandarwala (2,175,000), and Mark Rous (2,090,000) were the other three.

A certain Shaun Deeb (1,265,000) finished with a top 20 stack, and is one to watch on Day 2. Deeb narrowly missed out on capturing his sixth WSOP bracelet on June 5, when he finished second in the $1,000 No Limit Hold’em deep stack events online. He now has a realistic chance of adding more poker gold to his impressive collection.

David Williams has opened up a massive chip lead after Day 1 of Event #14: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship. Williams, who has a stud bracelet from 2006, bagged up a tournament-leading stack of 530,500 chips, over 200,000 more than Max Hoffman in second place.

Although he has started incredibly well in this event, a Williams victory is far from guaranteed because there are some phenomenal poker players among the 55 Day 1 survivors.

Dzmitry Urbanovich (247,000), Frank Kassel (186,000), and Eli Elezra (184,500) will return with top ten stacks.

The likes of Jeff Madsen (155,500), Andre Akari (148,000), Robert Mizrachi (54,000), and Daniel Negreanu (13,500) are still in the mix, although Negreanu has plenty of work ahead of him if he is to capture this tournament’s bracelet.
