The 2005 WSOP Tournament of Champions (TOC) completed day 1 play with two of the biggest names (and mouths) leading the field.
The format this year is much different than last year‚Äôs top-secret one-table shoot-out won by Annie Duke. The big changes:
:: There‚Äôs about 105 more people than last year (114 total).
:: Top point leaders from the WSOP and WSOP circuit events got the invite, along with the 9 who made the ME final table.
:: The event is a three-day affair.
:: The event is not top-secret. People died last year protecting the identity of the winner. People died.
