Players are still filtering into the Brasilia and Pavilion Rooms, but the WSOP has made it a point to start on time and cards are in the air. This is a six-handed event, but right now it looks like most tables are playing either three- or four-handed.
Over at Table 15, Octo-Niner and WSOP bracelet winner Jeremy Ausmus is sitting all by his lonesome. At least two players are needed for a table to start dealing, so Ausmus is stuck in limbo until an opponent shows up.
The entire room will surely fill up as players continue to make their way to the Rio. For now, we'll head out into the field and compile of list of notables who've jumped into the action right at the get-go.
