This event kicked off with a launch party last night to celebrate the first episode of the All City Live, available, along with the always-important open bar.
In addition to the core group of media were a smattering of players and Greg Mueller, David Pham and Tuan Le.
Although we loved the chance to see these heavyweights square off early in the event, the pros themselves were less than enthused about the situation.
As we've said before, just because a poker tournament has never been won on the first day doesn't mean the early stages aren't important. For a look at all the action we saw in the nine levels today, head over to the Live Updates page which that information calls home. Despite the casino track lighting we did manage to get some decent photos, which can be found on the Photo Page.
The tournament staff seems to be disregarding the minimum 12-hour break rule used by some casinos and have announced that we'll be back in action at noon tomorrow, actually today, which is less than 10 hours away. So get to bed and rest up for melee to come - we sure will.
