Huge Field Shows Up For WSOPC Lake Tahoe Main Event, Except Replace “Huge” With “Modest”

With only 9 days remaining until Christmas, or as poker players like to call it, the "World Series of Poker," interest seems low for the WSOPC championship at Lake Tahoe, as only 110 runners decided to show.

Many big names took crippling bad beats early on, as Daniel Negreanu, Chad Brown, and WPT Player of the Year Gavin Smith went home early. Although according to Poker Wire, Gavin Smith decided to throw his remaining chips away and drink instead of building back his stack. Maybe when you’ve won about $2M over the past year, you can do these kinds of things. Or if you have an alcohol problem.

The chip leader at the end of Day 1 is Robert "RCW" Cheung with 151,000. Cheung won a $1,000 NLH WPT Five-Star tournament earlier in the year. Right behind Cheung is J.C. Tran with 150,100.

Other notables remaining (but farther back) include Barry Greenstein, Chau Giang, Steve Brecher, John Juanda, and Dan Harrington.

    some frog named nicosurfer sucked out a straight on the river to crack my aces, then called my all-in w/ a 3-4 vs. my a-9 and hit a 3 on the turn. that’s poker, i guess, or something.
