On July 3, Wednesday, the 2019 WSOP Main Event kicked off smoothly with over 1,300 players duking it out on Day 1a. This breaks the record from last year's Day 1a of 925 participants.
WSOP bracelet winner Bryan Campanello was the Day 1a chip leader with 417,500 in his bag, subsequently followed by Raymond Travis Rice (335,000), Timothy Su (297,300), Quentin Roussey (266,400), and Takehiro Kato (259,200).
For the 2018 Women in Poker Hall of Fame (WiPHoF) inductees, the votes are in! Among the 11 highly-qualified ladies nominated, it was Maria Ho and Lupe Soto who were chosen to become members of the illustrious group of 17 Hall of Famers inducted since its foundation in 2008. The two latest additions perfectly fit the women organization's motto "Celebrating excellence, contribution and performance."
In the old days, conventional belief considers it "unladylike" for any woman to be seen at a poker table, since poker has been a man's game for so long that most people have assumed that naturally it is only for men. That stereotyping perspective has been shattered long ago and has since paved the way to an ever-increasing generation of female card players, and not only can some of them be very good at playing poker, the guys can't seem to take their eyes off of them as well because of their feminine beauty, of course.
The second starting day of World Poker Tour Bay 101 Shooting Star kicked off yesterday and saw a massive field that matched the size of this entire tournament last season. The total number of participants stands at 635, but the number is still unofficial according to WPT's website.
Both Day 1 a and b have now come to an end with approximately 900 survivors, who now will get to rest a bit before it's time for Day 3 to start. Among the survivors you'll find notable players such David Diaz, Eugene Katchalov, Maria Ho, Gavin Smith, Katie Dozier, Bernard Lee, Amnon Filippi, Dani Stern, Mike McDonald, Taylor Paur, Sammy Farha, Brock Parker, Jackie Glazier, David Pham, Gabe Kaplan, Kevin Pollak, Brian Hastings, Eric Baldwin and Faraz Jaka to name a few.
Last week, Maria Ho wrote history when she finished second in the 2011 WSOP $5k NLH event for $540,000. Even thought she didn't make it all the day to the title, the prize money was enough for her to become the women with the single largest cash at a Stateside WSOP event. In total, she has now cashed 9 times at the WSOP with her previous biggest score in 2007 Main Event where she finished 38th for $237,865.
