World Poker Tour Bay 101 Shooting Star is back once again and already the first day of the main event has come to an end. A total of 142 players signed up for Day 1a, and after several hours of play, 54 players remained.

Bryce Yockey (left in picture together with tournament director Matt Savage) ended the day as the chip leader with 245k. Apart from having the lead, Yockey has already earned $15,000 in this event thanks to the chip leader bonus and a Shooting Star bounty. Yockey sent Poker Hall of Famer Erik Seidel to the rail late in the day to add to his growing stack.

However, a few Shooting Stars still made it through Day 1a: Vanessa Selbst (125,400), Jontahan Duhamel (102.200) and Mike Matusow (83,800). Day 1b kicks off in about 8 hours and we can expect an even bigger field of players today.

Stay tuned for more updates!

Bryce Yockey is in the lead and already winning, he must be full of confidence to keep going on the World Poker Tour Bay 101 Shooting Star. Now that he has nothing to lose and with a good advantage of being first, he can really start enjoying this tourney. I think we can expect more action from this new hero, while the other starts will concentrate on the effort of reaching the final table, it just don’t seem easy to send any of them away by now…
