World Series of Poker
Day 1 Results... The 34th WSoP tournament started yesterday and the finals are on Friday. A record 839 players forked over the $10,000 buy-in entry fee, to bring the total prize money to (another new record): $7,802,700. Yes. Almost $8 Million!!! Yikes! The winner will walk away with almost $2.6 Million!! 388 players remain.
Last year's champion Robert Varkoyni from Brooklyn lost in the first day. He's already out of the tournament. He won $2 Million last year.
