The World Poker Tour has landed in beautiful Prague in Czech Republic and the first day of the Main Event is already in the books. 60 players entered Day 1A and, after 8 levels of play, 38 of them were still alive and kicking.

Swedish player Alexander Ivarsson had the lead for much of the first day, but at the end of it all it was Belarusian pro Aliaksei Boika who bagged up the chip lead with 99,500. Ivarsson, who had 126k at one point, ended the day in 4th place with 81.2k

Here are some of the biggest names who made it through to Day 2 with an average+ stack: GAELLE BAUMANN (77,100), KEVIN MACPHEE (67,500), STEVE O'DWYER (65,700), and ANTHONY ZINNO (50,500).

Day 1B kicks off at 2pm local time at King Casino in Prague. A greater field of players is expected today, which is well-needed for the tournament's prize pool! Check back tomorrow morning for another update.

Nothing better than a great poker game with a beautiful prize to warm the head and mind of some players in the freezing city of Prague during these days. The second Day 1 will bring more competition to the field, which will turn it more interesting.

Sounds like this will be another interesting game with a lot of big names trying for the title.Steve O'Dwyer is one of my favourite players and is always dangerous in these big games.

Practicaly they were all alive and kicking after the whole day, that 38 people just happened to be still in the game...
I am not a grammar nazi but sometimes even I could be lost in these newsarticles.
