Another 846 entered Day 1B of the 2010 PCA Main Event, bringing the total field to 1,515. This breaks last year’s record of 1,347 and should produce well over a $3M first place prize.
Pretty much the only big name that didn’t show up was Phil Hellmuth. As he tweeted:
Feel like I am the only poker player in the world that didn’t show up to the Bahamas for the PCA! Even Ivey made it! ESPN covering it…
At the end of Day 1B play, Annette Obrestad, a woman, was chip leader, stacked at 147,000. Some other notable big stacks include but are certainly not limited to Paul Wasicka (116,300), Phil Ivey (115,000), Vanessa Rousso, a woman (110,000), Robert Mizrachi (108,000), and Liz Lieu, a woman (85,000).
