E66 WSOP Clayton Maguire

Vegas cash game specialist Clayton Maguire won the online event. He was a huge online grinder back in Colorado, but moved to Vegas in the wake of Black Friday, so he could grind cash games.

"It was fun to play in a big online tournament," said Maguire in his post-win interview. "I used to play a lot online before Black Friday. I don't get to play this high very often anymore."

Maguire won $210K for the victory. He picked off bracelet winner Simeon Naydenov from Bulgaria in second place.

Thiago Nishijima from Brazil finished in ninth place. Billy Baxter...yes that Billy Baxter... went deep but busted in 15th place.

Event #68 $10,000 NL MAIN EVENT Championship - Day 2A/2B

The Main Event numbers are in! A total of 6,737 players bought into the big one, which is an uptick from last year. Paying out 15% of the field (or 1,011 players) might have attracted a lot more amateurs, who might have sat it out. A min-cash is worth $15,000. This year's prize pool is $63.3M and the champion will get a cool $8,000,000.

As the action heads into Day 2A/2B, approximately 5,500 players are still alive.

The third and final flight of the Main Event drew in over 4,240 players. Going into Day 1C, approximately 2,500 players were in the mix, but the gigantic field on Day 1C pushed the overall number over 6,737.

  • Day 1A: 764 runners
  • Day 1B: 1,733 runners

The biggest news on Day 1C was the return of Phil Ivey. He played in his first event of the summer, much to the delight of fans and poker media with a rock-solid hard-on for anything Ivey. They really couldn't contain themselves.

Tim Sheehan bagged up the most chips at the end of Day 1C. He's the chip leader going into Day 2s. Ah, the dreaded curse of the Main Event chip leader! Can Sheehen buck tradition and go on a deep run, or will the pack swallow him up?
