WSOP Main Event: Rising of the turnout during the two first qualifying days

Flagship event of the World Series of Poker (WSOP)n the Main Event of $ 10,000 entry fee of this edition 2012 started last Saturday, July 7. A major increase in attendance was observed in this new edition. On Day 1A, there were 1,066 players who joined Rio to take part in the tournament while last year the registered field was 897 participants. Many professional poker players did not miss this appointment as Michael Tureniec, Farah Jaka, Eric Baldwin, Isaac Baron and KK Liu who managed to qualify for the Day 2. After five levels of play, the first results were announced. It was William John who seized the chiplead by finishing up the day with 226,700 chips in hand. Phil Hellmuth is part of the starting field but failed to keep his starting stack.

On the qualifying second day, the attendance level was still high. This time, 2,114 players including some fifty French players settled in every poker room of Rio. As on Day 1A, a strong delegation of poker stars was among the competitors. If some of them were eliminated, others like Daniel Negreanu, Eugene Katchalov, Vanessa Selbst, Barry Greenstein or Liv Boeree will be back at Day 2. On the French side, the adventure continues for Alain Roy, Elie Payan, Marc Inizan or Valentin Messina. But, ElkY, Jean Philippe Rohr and Remy Biechel have already said goodbye to this highly anticipated poker tournament.
