2015 Main Event Progress after Day 1

July 8th, 2015 by Poka Paloma

Today is the start of Day 2s for the 2015 WSOP Main Event. I was reviewing the updates to see what had happened on Day 1C, and learned that:

  • A record number of entrants started Day 1C – over 3900
  • A total of 6,420 players entered the event, down from a 6,683 entrants last year
  • 4,389 players remain in this year’s Main Event
  • For ten years straight, the WSOP Main Event has drawn over 6300 entrants.
  • Phil Ivey is in the field. He arrived at the WSOP about a week ago to play the Hi Rollers’ ONE DROP tournament.
  • Phil Hellmuth arrived late (to starting Day 1C) as usual, at dinner time last night, with no frills as in previous years
  • Phil Hellmuth and Phil Ivey ended up at the same table. PokerNews has a great photo of them yacking it up.

Fun stat for those of us from Massachusetts:  2.5% of the Top 200 in the remaining field are from Massachusetts.

  1. Sean Hegarty – 133,825
  2. Jonathan Jaffe – 116,400
  3. Theodore Driscoll – 93,975
  4. Eugene Roemischer – 93,375
  5. Lokesh Garg – 92,850
