As expected, there are a lot of amateur and recreational players in the field today. That said, a few big names are sitting down to play. Here's who we've seen so far:
Jon "FatalError" Aguiar
So far a number of pros have been spotted at the tables. Among them are 2007 World Champ Jerry Yang, Bernard Lee, Eric Baldwin, Joe Cada, Marco Traniello, Kelly Kim, Jonathan Little, David Pham, Edward Brogdon, and Burt Boutin.
With players still trickling in, you can expect even more big names to be in the field.
Cards are in the air and the Pavilion is slowly filling up with fresh tables and late arrivals. The plan today is to play through 8.5 levels in order to merge with yesterday's field with the same time on the clock.
The 2010 World Series of Poker continues today with Day 1b of Event #13, the second $1,000 no-limit hold'em event of the series. Yesterday, Day 1A attracted 1,922 players and a similar number is expected for today's tournament.
Plenty of recognizable faces were in the field yesterday including: Tom McEvoy, Allen Cunningham, Kathy Liebert, "Miami" John Cernuto, and Victor Ramdin. Along with these pros were hundreds of amateurs looking to take their shot at a gold bracelet and a hefty payday.
Play is expected to begin in about ten minutes and you can be sure that PokerNews will be here every step of the way, providing you with the most extensive coverage live from the floor of the Pavilion at the 2010 World Series of Poker.
