Another action-packed day of poker has come to an end at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City. 223 players entered Day 1B of the WPT World Championship and 138 remained at several hours of play. Jason Koon (US pro with $2.5m in live tournament earnings) bagged up 252,800 in chips at the end of play, which makes him the overall chip leader heading into Day 2.
Among the remaining 200 players returning for Day 2 are notables such as Noah Schwartz, Ryan Riess, Shawn Cunix, Eugene Katchalov, Guillaume Darcourt, Amanda Musumeci, Kara Scott, Dan Smith, Kyle Julius, Raj Vohra, James Calderaro, Isaac Baron, and Mike Matusow.
A total of 328 players have entered the 2014 WPT World Championship, but, unfortunately, the official prize pool is yet to be announced (hopefully sometime today). You'll find another update from Borgata Casino's poker room here tomorrow tomorrow morning.
