Bellagio WPT Championship : Yevgeniy Timoshenko in good position for the doublet

Most fans of poker tournaments at the Bellagio have preferred to put their bags on the quiet coastal town of San Remo, in Italy to attend the last event before the European Poker Tour Grand Final in Monte Carlo. This had the effect of completely overshadowed the Bellagio World Poker Tour Championship. If the number of players who paid the entry of $ 25,000 for the championship World Poker Tour seems to be insignificant compared to the event of EPT San Remo (only 161 against 1240 in San Remo), this number is rather correct given the importance of buy-in. And the low number of European players can be attributed to the Icelandic clouds of ash that blanketed the majority of European airspace and that paralyzed numbers of flights.

Approximately, only 200 players were present at the tournament but it is not surprising for a such big buy-in. The only consolation for the organizers was the presence of many big names of poker. The 2009 WPT Championship has attracted a total of 338 players. Yevgeniy Timoshenko has received the honors last year and he has well started the tournament to defend his title during the first day. At the end of day1, he found himself in the 4th place with a stack of 277,275 chips and Timoshenko is well positioned for the doublet. But he should still face stiff opposition formed by big players like Phil Ivey and David Benyamine who themselves are in the lead pack at the end of the opening day of the tournament.
