07-07-2011, 09:22 PM
We are just hours away from the biggest and most prestige filled tournament in the poker world, the World Series of Poker Main Event! Most of the big names in poker are going to take part this year and we can expect a huge prize pool since the 2011 WSOP has seen many record fields. The Main Event is a 13-day event with 4 starting days.
The final table, where usually all players are guaranteed at least a million dollar each, will be played in November - just like it has been since 2008 when Peter Eastgate broke Phil Hellmuth's 19-year-old record of being the youngest player to win the Main Event.
We will keep you updated on the Main Event action from start to finish!

Day 2b of the 2011 WSOP Main Event came to and end about 2 hours ago. The day started with 2490 players and ended with 1,080 players remaining. This means that about 1,900 players are through to Day 3 of the tournament, which starts tomorrow.
In the lead is no one else than Ben Lamb, who took down the $10k PLO event for $814k, finished 2nd in the $3k PLO event, and has cashed in another 2 events at the 2011 WSOP. Other big names with plenty of chips left are Patrik Antonius (361,000 - 7th place),
Tony Hachem (245,100 - 27th) and Jeff Madsen (231,500 - 29th).
