2010 World Series of Poker Main Event – Day 1D RecapTweet Share
Some of the biggest of poker’s big guns came out for the final seating of 2010 WSOP Main Event Day One action on Thursday. Listed as Day 1D, the last of the first round World Series of Poker Main Event play concluded with some big names moving on and some big names going home.
Players of note that saw their first day be their last in this year’s Main Event were Joe Hachem, Sorel Mizzi, John Juanda and Ante Up For Africa winner, Phil Gordon. Making the best of their “first day on the job” were Vanessa Rousso, who chipped up to well over 100k, David Benyamine, who passed the 130k mark, and Steve Billirakis who topped out at almost 190k in chips.
Doyle Brunson finished his first day with a little more than 30k in chips while Phil Ivey survived round one with a bit less than his starting stack. Another of last year’s November Niners, Jeff Shulman, ended the day clinging to just over 12k in chips, while the 2009 Main Event runner up, Darvin Moon more than doubled his starting stack to about 78k. Jennifer Harman finished her first day just about where it began, with just under her original chip stack of 30k.
