Opening day of Event #33 at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) and already 2,795 poker players have flocked to the event in the hopes of bagging the winner’s prize. Sadly, Day 1 of the $1,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em tournament in Vegas cut down the number to only 231 of everyone who signed up.

Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino’s Brasilia, Amazon and Pavilion rooms were all filled hustling and bustling players. There are 297 places to be paid for the $2,515,500 money pool of the said event. The minimum payout of $1,836 and was paid off to Danny Mizrachi and many others.

By the time the chips were all bagged up, 2,564 of these players had already hit the rail. Day 1’s winner’s prize amounted to $440,238 and was bagged by Brad Libson from Maryland. He’s now to start with 117,100 chips. That’s just 1,800 over what Joshua Price of Kentucky earned, which puts Price in a close second place.

There were those who hit the rail early and failed to cash in their chips like Kara Scott, Leo Marget, Sorel Mizzi, John Eames, Chris Moorman, and one-time bracelet winner Kathy Liebert among others. While others failed in taking some money from the pool, some high profile players were able to make some good money on Event #33 like Leonid Bilokur who’s on the 235th place for 2,012. Jonathan Duhamel ranked 260th and took $1,836 from the table.

Big names that get to move on to Day 2 of Event #33 are: Faraz Jaka, Daniel Idema, Vincent van der Fluit, Sunny Chattha, Martins Adeniya, David Vamplew, Andy Frakenberger, Erik Seidel, Mark Radoja, Humberto Brenes and Andre Teng.
