Another beautiful morning in the Nevada desert and another journey to WSOP glory begins! We're gearing up for a massive day here in the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, as the final preparations are being made for Event #18: $1,500 No Limit Hold'em!

We've just received word from the floor that more than 2,100 players have ponied up the dough so far, but this number could blow out even further with alternates and late entries. If there were ever a time that you should come down to the Rio to get an idea of what to expect come the Main Event in a month's time, it's now!

However, we understand that not all of you will be able to get here by 12pm PST (GMT -7 for our international visitors), so please, stay with us here at PokerNews as our Live Reporting Team brings you all the updates. Bring it on!
