The day began with all the fun of Day 1 of Event 46, $5,000 Six-Max No-Limit Hold'em, which kicked off at noon.
Although a number of the world's best poker players were still wrapped up in H.O.R.S.E., there were a number of high-profile players in the house. Among the 805 entrants were Marco Traniello, David Ulliott and Freddy Deeb, who was out-flopped by Steve Zolotow in the later stages of the day and found himself on the rail. Also eliminated were Andy Black and Tony G.
At the end of the day it was businessman/poker player Lyle Berman who controlled the chip lead with $507,000, but we've got a lot of poker to be played before there's a final table. Daniel Negreanu, Barry Greenstein and Doyle Brunson are all near the top of the chip counts as well.
Join us tomorrow for more action from the most exclusive poker tournament in North America.
At 5 p.m. the slightly forgotten Day 1 of Event 47 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo Eight-or-Better (or SCSHLEOB as we LOVE to call it) kicked it off.
Although the event is a tournament reporter's worst nightmare (you ever tried writing down a minimum of 14 different cards with betting action spread over seven streets?), it garnered the attention of pros like Kristy Gazes, David Sklansky, David Levi and John Phan.
