WPT (WORLD POKER TOUR) Cyprus (BUY-IN - US$10,000 + US$300) started yesterday and is now over. Only 91 players signed up for Day 1a, which are quite few players to be any starting day of a WPT event. But most probably the other starting day will make up for it. Anyhow, 63 out of 91 players made it through to Day 2 of the tournament.

Sometimes i wonder how does some guys come to get 7k chips or 12k chips in just a few minutes of an online tourney if you only start with 1,500 (usually) and i get to think they make crazy all in's in the start so they can get well loaded stack and only after that they will play conciously, but i guess i am wrong. It has to be two or three very good followed hands, because a good player would never put his tourney at risk. By the way, nice field to day 2. Will Gus Hansen show his value here?
Ah, a WPT event in Cyprus... it's something new... it's the WORLD Poker Tour so its name itself say it, it's an event all around the world... very nice will indeed follow day2 as it's gonna be interesting.

Posted by SuperNoob: 120k chips in just 90 min, surely someone must have donked. btw less players for a wpt but they got some big names coming on day1b
If u get 120K chips in 90 minutes, u just ran hotter than the sun. U prolly hit every str8 flush and set .
But it's allround proven, early chipleaders are rarely first place finishers. (Let's hope i am wrong in this case then) Handling a Bigstack is not as easy as it looks like. Since most of the players make more marginal calls Events like WPT , EPT etc are not sprints, but marathons.
