WSOP Europe Main Event: First Flights Finished
September 24, 2021
Day 1b of the 2010 World Series of Poker Europe main event- the second of two Day Ones- has wrapped up at London's Casino at the Empire, allowing full details regarding total entrants, prize pool and this year’s top prize, to now be known.

Thanks to a Day 1b field of nearly 210 players including such skilled pros as J.C. Tran, Daniel Negreanu, Patrik Antonius, Gus Hansen, Phil Ivey, Carlos Mortensen and PokerRoad’s Barry Greenstein- and a slightly smaller Day 1a field of about 135 entrants- this year’s WSOP Europe main event bested last year’s attendance mark by about 12 people, with 346 players in total.

Already about 150 of those players have been eliminated, and though all of the above listed players still hold chips, many popular Day 1b pros were eliminated from contention during the tough tournament day.  Just some of those eliminated pros include Jeff Madsen, Vanessa Rousso, David Benyamine, Christian Harder and Tom “durrrr” Dwan.

195 players will now come together for Day 2 of the WSOP Europe main event tomorrow, each battling not only for a top prize of £830,401- about $1.3 million in US dollars- but also for the tournament’s main event bracelet- arguably one of the most prestigious WSOP bracelets given away each year.

The total prize pool for this event came in at £3,460,000, and will be divvied up among the top 36 finishers.  To find out who will earn a cut as the tournament progresses throughout the weekend, check out live updates at powered by PokerNews.
