Jeremy Kottler Leads Day 1 of WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic
Despite all the action over at WPT Prague, 374 of the biggest names in US and world poker headed over to the Bellagio for one of the biggest events of the year.
|James Dempsey survived
day 1 of his title defence
There are simply too many big names to mention in today's field but some of the survivors include Daniel Negreanu, Barry Greenstein, Erik Seidel, Sam Trickett, Marvin ' xcrash154' Rettenmaier and defending champion James Dempsey.
The day ended on level 5 and players have the option to re-enter up until level 8 tonight, so we should have a full picture of the prize pool this time tomorrow.
Join us tomorrow when our very own Tobias ' samagain' Block will be at the event trying to get interviews with the biggest names in our daily recaps
