6/13/10 – Another $1,000 event started Saturday afternoon as a Day 1a field of 1 931 hopefuls gathered for
event 24 – another of the popular $1,000 buy-in NLHE contests.
 
Seen at the tables as Day 1a cards hit the air were Kathy Liebert, Hevad Khan, Shannon Elizabeth, Eric Baldwin, Jeff Madsen, Dennis Phillips and Antonio Esfandiari, among others.  These were destined to bust out, however, and did not survive the first day’s action.
 
Attrition rates were high, and by late Saturday just 290 players remained when play was halted. These players will now combine with the survivors of Day 1b as the competition progresses.
 
The top three Day 1a players were Leon Yanovski (58,275), Valdemar Kwayser (49,600) and Arnaud Mattern  (39,950)
