Day 1’s of the 2009 WSOPE Main Event have wrapped. Overall, attendance has dropped, and this without having to turn away players like on Day 1D of the 2009 U.S. American version of the Big One.
A total of 335 entered this year, down from last year’s 362. Why the drop? The EconomyTM? Too much competition? Will this trend continue? Only time will tell.
The two Day 1 chip leaders were Brian Powell (194,600) and Steve Zolotow (166,825). So we don’t have to search for a random hot girl for this post, we’ll just go with Zolotow’s interview about being on HBO’s Cathouse from this summer above. We’d apologize, but by posting this instead of another hot girl, you’ll maybe appreciate the next hot girl we post just a little bit more.
Some notable big stacks include but are certainly not limited to Jason Mercier (189,725), Sami ‘LarsLuzak’ Kelopuro (168,925), N9’er Antoine Saout (144,400), and Doyle Brunson (92,900).
