Some Guy Whose Name Sounds Like an Islamic Salami Leads WPT Legends of Poker Day 1B

Mariaho2_2Day 1B at the WPT Legends of Poker at the Bicycle CashitholeTM brought 212 players, giving the tourney a total field of 373 and respectable first place pay-out of $1,116,428.

Apparently Phil Ivey shares our view of the venue, as he was doing whatever he could to get the f’ outta dodge, moving all-in blind frequently during the first level. Ivey eventually got KO’d when his 2-3o under the gun shove got picked off by Brian Rast‘s pocket Kings.

Other than that, the action was not fast and furious, as the large stacks and small blind levels led to few eliminations.

Ali Eslami finished Day 1B as chip leader with 168,500. Other big named big stacks include Mark Seif (97,000), Allen Cunningham (94,025), half-man, half-amazing Freddy Deeb (93,000), Mark Newhouse (88,175), Maria Ho!!!!!!!!! (83,000, at right, and about the only thing worth looking at in or around the Bike), and Barry Greenstein (82,100), who better get sent to the rail today because he has a date tomorrow at the Democratic National Convention for a charity fundraiser with Ben Affleck and Andy Bloch.
