With the traditional send off by World Series of Poker Tournament Director Jack Effel, cards are in the air. As the clock began to count down at the start of the first level, 1,421 entries were registered.
Welcome to Day 1 of Event #60: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em. With only six events left of the 45th annual World Series of Poker, chances of winning a gold bracelet are getting fewer. This is the last $1,500 no-limit hold’em of the 2014 series and a large turnout is expected.
In 2013, Loni Harwood captured the final $1,500 no-limit hold’em full-ring crown and the $609,017 first-place prize. Harwood defeated a field of 2,541 earning the top share of the $3,430,350 prize pool.
Action is scheduled to begin at noon inside the Brasilia room where players will battle their way through 11 hour-long levels of play on Day 1. Keep it locked on the PokerNews live update blog for all the day’s big names, big pots, and bustouts.
