Andras Nemeth Leads at End of Day 1a of WPT WOC Main Event
Andras Nemeth Leads at End of Day 1a of WPT WOC Main Event

Action is now finished on the big games across partypoker today, and it was a big one. WPT Super $215 and WPT Super $55 cracked their guarantees, with the $55 game building a prize pool nearly 30% above the guarantee. A few other games fell short of guarantee today, but overall it was a day of good prize pools.

The biggest game on offer didn't finish today, of course. Day 1a of WPT WOC Main Event played down from 390 entries to just 59 remaining before they quit for the day. Today's field put $1.95 million into the prize pool already, putting them more than 1/3rd of the way to the $5 million guarantee.

It took about 7.5 hours for Andras Nemeth from Hungary to bag the biggest stack of Day 1a. He finished the day with just over 4 million chips, but Steven Van Zadelhoff is right behind him with more than 3.75 million. Five players have more than 3 million chips to start Day 2.

Team partypoker pro Jeff Gross was also among the players to find a Day 2 bag. He was the only member of Team Pro to make it through today's grinder, but he managed to put almost 1.3 million into his bag, good for 24th place.

No doubt Gross' fellow pros like Jaime Staples, Patrick Leonard, and others would love to replicate his feat on Day 1b any way they can get there. There are Day 1b satellites running now in the partypoker lobby, so you still have a chance to nab your stack for Day 2 of this huge event.

WPT Grand

Outside of the opening salvo in the $5 million Main Event, the biggest game of the day was the $300,000 guaranteed WPT Grand. A total of 289 entries came out to play this weekend, which wasn't quite enough to hit the guarantee. Karim Maekelberg from Belgium won the biggest share of the guarantee with $57,124 while Denmark's Martin Sehested won $39,746 for 2nd.

WPT Super $530

The WPT Super $530 guaranteed $150,000, but it fell more than $30,000 short when 235 entries combined for $117,500 collected. That still left a healthy $14,059 up top in prizes for Maxim Mamonov to win, and he padded that up nicely with $17,267 more in bounty bonus.

UK grinder Jamie Nixon took second place for a combined prize of $15,793. Fellow Brit Patrice Brandt booked his second final table of the day, adding $4,591 total for 7th here to his $10,565 total wins for 2nd in the WPT Weekender Final Day.
