6/25/10 – Please note that beginning today we are running a 2011 WSOP early qualifier. Yes it says 2011. View all the info here.
One of the toughest fields came out to play in event 43, the $10,000 buy-in H.O.R.S.E. World Championship, where 241 experienced and talented players took their places for some highly competitive poker and big money on Wednesday afternoon, and by the start of Day 2 twenty four hours later there were still 169 players in contention.
Among them were seven WSOP main event champs: Joe Hachem, Greg Raymer, Chris Ferguson, Scotty Nguyen, Huck Seed, Carlos Mortenson, and Doyle Brunson, along with other high recognizable aces like Daniel Negreanu, Freddy Deeb, Jennifer Harman, Erik Seidel and Allen Kessler.
By late night Thursday Vegas time play had reached level 17 and the Day 2 field was down to only 25, with an average chip stack of 289 200 and Brandon Adams holding the lead on 560,000 with Carlos Mortensen (520,000) and Brian Townsend (483,000) treading on his heels.
When we went to press the money bubble was imminent, with the last 24 players qualifying for a payday of at least $21 997; unfortunately, players like Annie Duke, James Mackey, Phil Galfond and Scott Seiver will not share in the bonanza, having been eliminated a few spots prior.
