End of Day 1 at the WSOP Main Event - Update

The final Main Event Day 1 finished strong with over 3,000 entries. We had two players in the field today Tom Fox and Sasha Sabbaghian.

During the day we saw several professional poker players, including Greg Raymer. We also came across the man himself, Jack Effel, Director of the WSOP and chatted with him.

A big highlight of the day was when we saw and caught up with several of our players from The Poker Room including John Bettencourt, Nader Isahac and Saroth Hong. Towards the end of the night we met with Cornel Andrew Cinpan whom he checked in with our players to prepare them for Day 2 of the Main Event.
