It is what they all have been waiting for, the WSOPE Ã‚Â£10,000 No Limit Holdem Tournament. Poker players from the professional ranks as well as from the world of online poker have converged on London for this inaugural main event. With the coveted WSOP gold bracelet has the prize, this event became to large for one casino and will be held in three different poker rooms.
Poker professionals like Barry Greenstein, Chris Ferguson, Jennifer Harman, Doyle Brunson, John Juanda, Andy Block, David Ã¢â‚¬ËœDevilfishÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Ulliott, Thor Hanson, Annie Duke and many others. None however arrived to the game like 11 time bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth. Flanked by eleven beautiful women, Hellmuth arrives in a red double-decker bus for his typical grandiose arrival. It did not seem to distract from his play though as he is very near the top of the leader board after day 1.
Unfortunately though, someone has to be eliminated and this includes some of the finest poker professionals in the game. Day 1 casualties included, Todd Brunson, Freddy Deeb, Andy Bloch, John Juanda and the Thomas Ã¢â‚¬ËœBuzzerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Bihl who earlier in the week made poker history by winning the first WSOP bracelet ever awarded outside the US.
