Wednesday was a big day at the 2014 WSOP. Records, which some may say are made to be broken, were broken.

:: Event #3 ($1,000 PLO) - The aforementioned record that was made to be broken was broken at this event. This tourney became the largest non-hold’em event in WSOP history. It brought in a total field of 1,128 players. First will pay out $205,634. A total of 106 remain going into Day 2. Loren Klein is the chip leader. Phil Laak, Leif Force, Ashton Griffin, Greg Merson, and Maria Ho, a woman, are among the big stack. Get full chip counts here.

:: Event #2 ($25,000 NLH Mixed Max) - A total of 16 remain going into the final day of play. As you’d expect, there are stars who are studded in this one. Not a star although a stud restaurant owner is overall chip leader Al Decarolis. He’s closely followed by the spectacularly-breasted J.C. Tran and the unstoppable Vanessa Selbst, a woman who likes women. Everybody’s fantasy draft sleeper target Calvin Anderson is fifth overall, and Chris Porter Matt Giannetti is sixth.

:: Aaaaand Event #1 ($500 Casino Employees) is heads-up between two people you’ve never heard of nor will again. Stacks here.
