Registration hasn’t closed yet, but a probably-less-than-hoped-for 161 have signed up so far for this year’s WPT Championship.
Of the 161 who entered, 138 have made it to Day 2. One-time WPT winner Shawn Buchanan is the chip leader, stacked at 388,600. Last year’s WPT Championship winner and looking less-like-a-chick-these-days, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, is among the big stacks at 277,375.
Other big named big stacks include some guy named Phil Ivey (230,250), Prahlad Friedman (204,000), and Beth Shak, a woman (189,725).
