As expected, it was a bloodbath after the money bubble burst at the 2010 WSOP Main Event, as the field went from 747 to 575 in under two hours. Among the departed min-or-near-min cashers included Gavin Smith, Patrik Antonius, Allen Cunningham, and likely Player of the Year, Frank Kassela.
Ending the day as chip leader is noted online player and suit wearer Tony ‘Bond18′ Dunst with 1,546,000. He’s followed by Duy Le with 1,460,000.
In fifth overall is even more noted online player and non-suit wearer Phil ‘OMGClayAiken’ Galfond with 1,392,000. And somehow, against all logic and reason, Johnny Chan remains, stacked at 1,159,000.
Other notables remaining include but are certainly to Adam Levy (1,054,000), the amazingly still alive Hasan Habib (875,000), Jesper Hougaard (871,000), The Intense Stare of Scott Clements (828,000), Johnny Lodden (766,000), Praz Bansi (660,000), Imari Love (653,000), Scotty Nguyen (632,000), Jason Somerville (606,000), Hoyt Corkins (572,000), Dragan Galic* (569,000), Eric Baldwin (506,000), Allie Prescott (504,000), David Ass-ouline (500,000), Bruce Buffer (450,000), Jean-Robert Bellande (356,000), David Benyamine (329,000), Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi (241,000), and Alex Jacob (138,000).
