Day 1a of the WSOPE Main Event saw 156 players take to the poker tables, including some of the biggest names in the poker world: Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth, Doyle Brunson, Vanessa Rousso, and Patrik Antonius.

There were no shortage of casualties on day 1a, which saw the like of Hoyt Corkins, Robert Mizrachi, Vanessa Rousso, Huck Seed, Phil Ivey, and Andy Bloch among others eliminated. Even with the loss of the aforementioned big names, many top players advanced on like Doyle Brunson, Todd Brunson, Phil Hellmuth, Men Nguyen, Erik Seidel, Patrik Antonius, and Nick Schulman.

One down-note was the fact that we had to witness another over-the-top entrance by Phil Hellmuth (when will the absurdity end???) where he rehashed his Roman Gladiator/Emperor outfit from the WSOP –the outfit was different but the theme remained the same—and arrived in a horse drawn chariot with models in tow.

The tournament will recommence today, where officials expect the typical larger turnout for day 1b.
