6/17/10 – 13 players remained from an original field of 171 in event 29 – the $10,000 buy-in Limit Hold'em World Championship in the early hours of Thursday morning Vegas time, with Kyle Ray holding a slim lead over nearest opponents Daniel Idema and Jameson Painter when play ended for the day.
 
The day had started with Aussie ace Jeffrey Lisandro leading a surviving field of 102 which contained many respected names.  Famous players who did not survive a tough Day 1 included Terrence Chan, Daniel Negreanu, Mike Matusow and Howard Lederer.
 
After thirteen hours of very competitive poker, they were joined at the rail by the likes of Lex Veldhuis, Erick Lindgren, Phil Hellmuth, Chris Ferguson and Matt Glantz, along with Vanessa Rousso and Chad Brown, Dwyte Pilgrim, Isaac Haxton, Justin Bonomo and Shaun Deeb.
