A total of 142 players entered Day 1A of the WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star with 57 making it to Day 2.
Leading at the end of the day — and earning a $10,000 bonus for doing so — is Brian Schmidt with 187,700. He’s followed by Eric Moore with 160,000, and Kara Scott, a woman, who is stacked oh-so-nicely and has 137,100 in chips. The suspiciously named Mehrdad Nouralishahi (136k) ends the day in fourth and Layne Flack rounds out the top five with just over 131k.
Of the 19 “Shooting StarsTM” who started, nine survived including the aforementioned Scott and Flack, Mike Matusow (127,200), Brandon Cantu (117k), John Juanda (85k), Gavin Smith (67K) and the man the myth the legend, Black Phil Ivey, Big Sldick, the one and only Dwyte Pilgrim (52k).
John Krpan has 20k.
