An impressive total field of 335 registered for the 2010 WPT Festa al Lago at the Bellagio. This generated a first place prize of $831,500 (a total of 50 get paid).
For those who care about these types of things, this is up significantly from last year’s field of 275 (when the buy-in, however, was $15,000) but still down from the peak year of 2007 when there were 433 entrants.
Matt Affleck ended Day 2 as chip leader, stacked at 585,300. He’s followed by Annette Obrestad, a woman, with 536,800. The next closest to them is Owen Crowe with 360,000.
Plenty of big names among the big stacks, including David William (278,300), Jeff Madsen (269,200), Men “The Master” Nguyen (263,500), and a still running good post-WSOP Vladimir Shchemelev (244,000).
