6 days have now passed since the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event kicked off. In the 42-year history of WSOP, the Main Event this year is the third-largest ever, with 6,865 participants and more than 1.4 billion in prize money. Anyhow, the 4 starting days are in the books and also Day 2a (822 of 2,031 through to Day 3). We are now waiting for the official Day 2b results to be released. It will be interesting to see how many survived from the 2490-player field.
