A total of 15 players entered the World Poker Tour Alpha8 London event for £60,000 each, and 5 players re-entered the tournament during Day 1's eight levels of play.

What a list of names we have here and these players must have played in the biggest cash games in the world, i would love to see some of the games they play behind closed doors

These two tables have a great selection of players but if you had to choose a table to join in this event which table would you prefer?
Daniel Cates,Max Altergott joined the game after this stage to make it even harder but the person to be avoiding this year is obviously Dan Colman and the end result certainly showed that.
