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.
