Day 1 At NAPT Mohegan Sun Sees Many Come, Many Go
April 8, 2022
Of the 716 total players that showed up for the first ever PokerStars North American Poker Tour Mohegan Sun main event, over 250 have already been sent packing, thanks to a turbulent Day 1 that saw the rise of many familiar names as well as the fall of quite a few legends.

Among that list of legends that saw their Connecticut tournaments cut short sat such names as Tom “durrrr” Dwan, Joe Cada, Shane Schleger, Chad Brown, “Miami” John Cernuto and PokerRoad’s own Barry Greenstein, who according to his own Tweets on the PokerRoad Nation feed, got it all in with a big pair only to unfortunately run into another one.

Some of the more fortunate players still in the hunt at the Mohegan Sun include J.C. Tran, Jeff Madsen, Greg Raymer, Dwyte Pilgrim, Daniel Negreanu, Sorel Mizzi, Montel Williams, Phil Ivey and Vanessa Selbst, who is currently behind only 2004 WSOP Main Event runner-up David Williams- the guy leading the field with over 230,000 in tournament chips.

Day 2 of the Mohegan Sun NAPT main event starts today at noon EDT, when the 443 surviving players will once again sit down to continue their quest for the event’s top prize worth $750,000.  For more information on this event, or to catch live updates as they happen, check out the PokerStars blog.
