Every tournament grinder that didn’t play the 2010 WSOP Europe apparently decided to show up for the WPT Borgata Poker Open.
Now before we get carried away, the record field of 1,042 entrants was partly due to the fact that the buy-in was only $3,300. Regardless, solid turnout.
Heading into Day 2, Vincenzo Abate is the overall chip leader, stacked at 201,475. Other notable big stacks include but are certainly not limited to Jacobo Fernandez (145,100), Allen Bari (127,300), Bernard Lee (120,125), Lisa Hamilton, a woman (115,575), Nick Binger (96,975), Chris Bell (80,000), Steve Dannenmann (75,000), John D’Agostino (60,000), and the man the myth the legend Dwyte Pilgrim (59,000).
