The 2010 WSOP Seniors No-Limit Championship broke a record yesterday, as the 3,142 entrants marked the most people playing in one single live poker tournament at one time.
In related news, this was the largest field ever for the WSOP Seniors event, with math math math around 400 more entrants than last year.
A total of 450 survived the day, enjoying a 4pm dinner break, 7:30pm Wheel of Fortune break, 9pm end time, and will come back today bright and early at 6am to start play again.
In what almost seems like when Hale Irwin entered the Champions Tour (or more recently, Bernhard Langer or Fred Couples), Tom Schneider ended the day as chip leader, stacked at 94,000.
Other “notables” remaining include but are certainly not limited to John Spadavecchia (64,000), Berry Johnston (62,900), Snuffy Smith (62,000), Hoyt Corkins (36,900), Joseph ‘Blue’ Palasky (34,200), and Dewey Tomko (32,100).
