I think a lot of people would like Phil Ivey to win this because he deserves the official title of World Champion because he is the unofficial world champion in many people's eyes

Ivey's first day was very nice. But the fact of the third Day 1 having more players, half of total, should be considered strange. Do players think they have more chances of getting to the next day this way? It's questionable. ..
