At this stage, we’ll just stop noting that the World Poker Tour and World Series of Poker are exceeding entrant expecations. Clearly, The Events of 4/15 have had no short-term ill-effects on either tour (or the EPT for that matter).
With that in mind, the $3,500 buy-in 2011 WPT Borgata Poker Open drew a massive field of 1,313. A little over 750 survived the Day 1’s to start today’s merged field.
Plenty of big names are among the chip leaders. Not among them is current big stack Abe Korotki with 260,100. He’s followed by 9/11 Truther/rapper Jeff Madsen with 216,925.
Other notables include but are certainly not limited to Vanessa Selbst, a woman who likes women (198,675), Will Failla (189,500), David Williams (153,850), and Maria Ho (108,000).
