Another No Limit Holdem event at the 2011 World Series of Poker means one thing, yet another big turnout as 1,340 players registered for the $1,500 Triple-Chance NLHE tournament on Tuesday. With rebuy lammers all over the place during the early action it’s amazing that just 160 players ended up bagging chips at the end of the night, including some well known poker pros.

With the money bubble set to burst at 144 players expect the action to pick right up on Wednesday as the players jockey for position, with eyes on the WSOP bracelet and $352,808 that will go to the winner.

Here is a look at the top chip counts at the end of Day 1 of the $1,500 NLHE Triple Chance tournament:

1. Peter Hernandez — 124,700
