Barry Greenstein

After nine preliminary events, yesterday finally saw the beginning of the World Series of Poker Series Caesars Indiana main event get underway. Along with it came the appearance of several pro players trying their hand at snagging a bracelet and entry into the 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event.

Barry Greenstein, Mim Tran, Men "The Master" Nguyen, Chris Grigorian, Young Phan and Scott Fischman all posted the $5,000 buy-in for the event. They joined a playing field of 154 entrants, creating a $736,900 prize pool.

Also in the mix was horse breeder Mark Smith who won the WSOPC main event at the Grand Casino in Tunica last year. He's already done well at this tournament after backing two women in the Ladies event, who finished in second and fourth place.

At the end of the first day, 33 players remained with Adam Friedman holding the chip lead. Greenstein, Nguyen, Phan and Fischman also made it through to see a second day of play.

Play will resume Friday as they play down to the final nine, with the final table playing out on Saturday.
