2010 WSOP Main Event Day 1B: James Danielson Leads

Gavin Smith (foreground) continued his strong 2010 WSOP by surviving the Day 1B Main Event flight.

A total of 1,489 players entered Day 1B of the 2010 WSOP Main Event. That’s a huge jump in players from last year’s Day 1B, which brought in a meager 873. For you math whizzes at home, that’s nearly a 792% increase.

Don’t have the official numbers yet, but a little over 1,000 survived to Day 2A. James Danielson is the overall chip leader, stacked at a whopping 201,050. Some notable bigger stacks remaining include but are certainly not limited to Kido Pham (114,000), Gavin Griffin (97,200), Brandon Cantu (72,000), Phil Laak (58,000), Jon “Pearljammer” Turner, a ginger (63,825), Dan Harrington (45,000), and Gavin Smith (40,000).

Some notable eliminations include Erick Lindgren, Justin Bonomo, Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, Joe Sebok, Liv Boeree (a woman), Jamie Gold, and a now-treading-dangerously-on-Tuan-Lam-territory Ivan Demidov.
