2007 World Series of Poker Main Event Day 1A

Copyright (c) 2007-2021

The 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event Day 1A held at the RIO casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 6th, marked the beginning of what has become known as the largest poker tournament on earth. Harrah's who owns the World Series of Poker (WSOP) decided to add another three days to the schedule on June 30th making it even bigger. Jack Effel who is the WSOP tournament director, stated that the extra days would help to provide a comfortable experience for all players who wish to enter. Comfort is appreciated given the $10,000 per person entry fee for this tournament. Now Day 1 will be split up into four segments, Day 1A, 1B, 1C and now 1D with Day 2 split into 2A (1A + 1C) and 2B (1C + 1D). Each segment will give the WSOP the capacity to handle 3000 players daily for a maximum total of 12,000 players. If this number is realized, then it will eclipse the 8,773 WSOP attendance record set last year for the 2006 Main Event.

All players will be given $20,000 in chips to start with to play on levels lasting 120 minutes each. The goal for each player in the Amazon room is to last 6 levels a day and survive. The prize pool size, total number of entrants and payout schedule can't be accurately calculated until all phases of Day 1 are complete. But one fact is solid and that is all have their eyes fixed on a bracelet featuring 136 grams of 18-carat white gold set with 120 diamonds that will go to the champion of the Main Event. The money is not bad either as 2006 Main Event winner Jamie Gold received $12,000,000 USD for first place. Playing in the Main Event is not as easy as what the world sees on ESPN and the World Poker Tour. In fact, less than 10 minutes after Day 1A began, the first bustout happened when a player got pocket Aces, went all-in and had them cracked by someone else who had A K. Seated in today's field were a number of the game's top professionals such as WPT announcer Mike Sexton, Amarillo Slim, Bobby "The Owl" Baldwin 1978 Main Event champion, Haralabos Voulgaris, Mark Vos, Ram Vaswani, David "The Devilfish" Ulliott, Dewey Tomko, Arnold Spee, John Spadavecchia, Doyle Brunson holder of 10 WSOP bracelets, Jose Rosenkrantz, Liz Lieu, Mel Judah, World Poker Tour champion Alan Goehring, Michael Mizrachi and Marcel Luske. And comedy relief was provided by Brad Garrett and Ray Romano from the "Everybody loves Raymond" television series.

By 10:30 p.m., the official player count was released as 1,287 for Day 1A. This seemed to be quite a bit short of the record setting 2,138 entrants who came to the tables in 2006 on it's Day 1A. As play continued, there were plenty of bad beat stories going around the Amazon room with more and more bustouts taking place. If you were there, the most lengthy ones begin with, 'I had pocket Aces and...', accompanied with looks ranging from sad to angry. Some of the big names who are no longer in this tournament round are Victor Ramdin, Blair Rodman, Jerri Thomas, Mickey Appleman, Perry Friedman, Michael Mizrachi, Gabe Thaler, Alan Smurfit, Johnny Chan and Doyle Brunson who were both looking for an 11th bracelet to tie Phil Hellmuth. Phil now holds the record for the most WSOP gold bracelets (11 of them) and number of cashes (63 in total so far at time of this writing) than any player on the face of the earth. Ray Romano was not able to outlast Brad Garrett at the tables and settled a $2,000 wager with Brad. Brad stated that the money will be donated to an agreed upon charity. The tournament round ended at 4:00 a.m which made for a long 16 hour day with 450 players that will move on to Day 2A.

The 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event Day 1B had 1,545 players enter this round of the tournament. Officials said they have approximately 1,600 that have pre-registered for Day 1C. So more than likely the numbers for this year's Main Event will not come close to the 8,773 total players in 2006. The dip in the numbers is highly related to the fact that Harrah's did not allow online poker rooms and online casinos to send their players to the Main Event or any other event in this years WSOP.

World Series of Poker Circuit Tournaments for the second season have been completed and it's time to review what went on during the past year.

By competing in the Main Events offered at each circuit stop, a few fortunate players who became winners earned freeroll seats to the 2006 Tournament of Champions. All of these winners won't be seen on television as ESPN did not film all of the events on the circuit, but they were named here so you know who went to the Tournament of Champions.
