Besides the ongoing (and very exciting) WSOP Europe Main Event in Cannes, the $50,000+$1k buy-in Majestic Super High Roller with re-buys started yesterday and saw 43 entries throughout the day. The field included notables such as Tom Dwan, Sam Trickett and Daniel Negreanu, who signed up for the tournament as soon as he had been knocked out of the Main Event.

The first day finished after 8 levels of play and only a few failed to survive, including Eugene Katchalov and October Niner Gregory Merson - neither of them made a rebuy. 37 players will return for Day 2 at 4:00 PM (local time) today. The chip leader is no one else than John Juanda, who is no stranger to big buy-in events, and he has about 130k more than his closest competitor, Richard Yong.

Many well-known players will bring healthy stacks to the tables today. Just have a look at the chip counts below:

Now thats some serious competition indeed, i mean all of them are pro poker players specialized in live games...

The actual lead that John has it's insignificant, i mean that advantage can be changed in just a hand.
