Playing in his 101st WPT event, the funniest poker pro on Twitter, Erik Seidel, is the Day 1A chipleader at the WPT London, bagging 226K . In fourth is 9-time WPT final table-ist Phil Ivey with 146,200. Huck Seed will be coming back tomorrow with 93,400.
Also making it to Day 2 is Victor Victorovich Ilyukhin with 80k. No idea who that is though.
Day 1B is underway now at the Palm Beach Casino, in London, and it will surely draw more entrants than yesterday’s anemic 72 runners. No doubt the EPT Villa-whatever going on in Portugal has affected the turnout, as well as players saving their buy-ins for the the upcoming WSOP Europe. And somehow UK hottie Victoria Moore is to blame.
