SWEDISH PRO LEADS DAY 1A OF W.S.O.P. MAIN EVENT
2014-07-07

771 players - a lower turnout than last year - turned out for the Day 1a, the first of three entry flights for the $10,000 buy-in 2014 World Series of Poker main event, which concluded over the weekend with retired chef and Swedish pro Martin Jacobson in the lead on 200,100 chips, more than 40,000 ahead of nearest rival Aaron Wilt.
Although smaller than last year, the field contained a host of major names in the game, including five former WSOP champions in Ryan Riess, Greg Merson, Chris Moneymaker, Tom McEvoy and Johnny Chan, all of whom survived and are among the 505 who move on to Day 2a.
Other notable names to advance included Mukul Pahuja, Layne Flack, Antonio Esfandiari and Annette Obrestad..
The day proved disappointing for professional players who were eliminated early, such as Phil Laak, Mustapha Kanit, Bruno Fitoussi, Eric Froelich, Jeff Gross, Jason Mercier, David Chiu and Jean-Robert Bellande.
When InfoPowa went to press the Day 1b flight was in full swing after television star and World Series of Poker regular, Ray Romano gave the 'shuffle up and deal" call.
Unofficial figures put the entry field for Day 1b at 2,144 players, and reports from WSOP indicate that entries for Day 1c - the last of the entry flights - have already soared past 3,000.
Seen taking their seats were former WSOP champs like Huck Seed and Dan Harrington, along with a strong female contingent of respected players like Lauren Kling, Sofia Lovgren, Liv Boeree, Vanessa Selbst, Erika Sands, Melissa Burr, Allyn Shulman, Amanda Baker and Ana Marquez.
Brian Hastings, Chris Moorman, Bertrand Grospellier, Philippe Gruissem, Max Silver, Erik Seidel, Brandon Shack-Harris and Sorel Mizzi were also spotted by big-name fans.

POKERSTARS ANNOUNCE EPT SEASON 10 SCHEDULE
2013-05-06

With the end of the European Poker Tour Season 9 finale in Monaco still around the corner, PokerStars has already released its EPT Season 10 schedule.

The key change in Season 10's schedule is a shift for EPT San Remo, dropping the Italian stop back in just before Monaco. But other changes made to the Season 9 schedule have proved successful enough to continue such as an increase in high roller events at each stop and regional tour partnerships such as the Estrellas Poker Tour and the UK & Ireland Poker Tour.

"During a successful Season 9 where we decided to host fewer and bigger events incorporating the national tours, we listened to an enormous amount of player feedback who valued less time spent travelling, and more time spent playing. Since the San Remo tournament will be held immediately before the EPT Grand Final in April, it will mean players can spend the whole month of April on the beautiful Riviera," said EPT President Edgar Stuchly.

Alex Noren leads by 1 stroke
2013-04-27

After two days of delays, the event got back on track despite the cold and windy conditions at the Blackstone Course.

Noren is seeking his fourth European Tour victory and first since winning twice in 2011.

"The tough thing here is to judge the wind on the second shots, so it's been tricky for the mind and I'm exhausted right now," Noren said.

Pablo Larrazabal of Spain (68) and Peter Whiteford of Scotland (68) share second place at 8 under.

Former British Open winner Louis Oosthuizen shot a 71 to be tied in eighth at 5 under.
