On Thursday, Day 1A of the World Poker Tour (WPT) Emperors Poker Classic Main Event ($3,600) kicked off. The event, which is being played at The Palace of Dreams in the heart of Johannesburg in South Africa 7-11 Nov, attracted 85 entrants (11 more than last year) and 54 players made it through the day. Nahum Lum bagged up the largest stck (123,725), and he will joined to the second day by notables such as Faraz Jaka, Gaella Baumann and Barny Boatman.
The second Day 1 flight begins in a few hours and, as usual, a greater field of players is expected to participate! We will be back with another update on Monday morning. Until then, have a great weekend!
After the world cup we now have the WPT in South Africa, I am close from it, living from Mauritius but do not have the bankroll to go and participate in it. Should be fun to watch and the players that are going to play there are no amateurs.
Good luck Faraz, like him as a player too, good luck, keep us updated!!
I am very glad that the WPT is expanding its geography. But I wonder how many Africans will be able to participate in this tournament) It is interesting how many people will registered in main event...
