Tags: 2015 WSOP Main Event.
Posted on 07 July 2015 by "T".

The second starting flight attracted 1,716 players who put up the $10,000 buy-in for a last chance at taking home a bracelet at this year's World Series of Poker. The cards were in the air once 2014 WSOP Player of The Year George Danzer called out the classic words "shuffle up and deal".

At the end of Day 1B, Hamid Feiz had the biggest stack of all players with 182,675 in chips, which means that he's currently the overall chip leader heading into Day 2. Big names such as Dominik Nitsche (128,725), Matt Salsberg (113,025), and Shawn Cunix (108,375) all bagged over 100,000 chips. Other notables to make it through to Day 2 include Greg Raymer (92,200), Brian Hastings (87,500), JC Alvarado (83,500), and Brian Rast (88,825), Todd Brunson (57,925), Jason Mercier (66,325), Jesse Sylvia (46,650), and Phil Galfond (33,400).

Late registration was open until level four on Day 1B. When it closest the total field was 2,457 players. According to WSOP's website, about 1,154 players made it through to Day 2. Combined with the Day 1A survivors approximately 1,624 players are still alive and kicking.

Day 1C, the final starting flight, kicks off later today and is expected to see the largest field of players. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Yeah, day 1B is always attracts many late comers so we could see now how many entrants this year's Main Event really had. I guess the numbers at the end will be something similar to previous year's headcounts, no more - no less.

It must be strange for the players who built up massive stacks on day 1a and are on a massive high but they have to wait 3 days before they can get back into the tournament......or even worse for the players who only have a few BB and have to wait 3 days to get their chips in!!!

I guess those are not gonna show up when their tables are going to move. Honestly we heard some people came back from a couple of chips to makiing onto the final table somewhere else, but this event is too deep and long to worth it make as a long shot with 3 or 4 BB. Especially for foreigners who might have their airplane ticket home already.
