WSOP 2015 Main Event Kicks Off

The WSOP Main even kicked off yesterday. There’s some changes to the structure this year. One of the great benefits is the first 1000 finishers will get a prize . This is great considering most players are taking time from work, paying hotel and air fare as well. Even if they don’t win a major prize they may break even or get some cash back making this more enticing. In fact, more players will probably want to join and that could still bring a bigger cash event .
The Main Event drew 741 players who ponied $10,000 in hopes of going for that grand prize , bragging rights and a big entry in the poker world.
After day one at the 2015 WSOP, Floridian, William Kakon emerged as the chip leader going into Day 2 to take place Wednesday. His lead isn’t the greatest though with a little over 150,000 chips . Fellow competitors Gjergj Sinishtaj has a little more than 149,000 and Alex Tran from California has a little more than 142,000 chips. It’s so far a tight match.
Day 2 is slated for Wednesday , while the finishings of the Day 1 entrants are Monday and Tuesday.
