Day 1 of Event #52: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship has come to an end after 10 levels of play and it's Michael Moore leading the way with 268,500. It was a steady climb for much of the day for Moore and he took a big pot from Ray Henson late in the night to secure the chip lead.

Joao Vieira sits in second with 211,000 and Nick Schulman rounds out the top three Day 1 chip stacks with 202,000. Schulman was one of the last entries of the night, taking his seat after the final break, and he wasted no time putting those chips to work and running it up.

Mike Leah was the last Day 1 entry after finishing 7th in the WSOP $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha event. Leah took his seat with just 20 minutes left in the night but more than doubled his starting stack bagging 125,000.

There was plenty of action on the first day of play and, as the hefty price tag would suggest, plenty of big names that entered. Many of them fell by the wayside, including Daniel Negreanu, who was among the first wave of players to hit the rail when he was sent home by his old friend Kevin Song. Erik Siedel, Shaun Deeb and James Obst soon followed. Defending champion Joe McKeehen lasted less than one level of play before being eliminated as well.

JC Tran was sitting behind a healthy stack for much of the night but he was eliminated with less than 30 minutes left in the night.

In total, there were 101 entries on Day 1 and 43 will be returning to Amazon Tan on Tuesday, June 26 at 2 P.M. local time for the second of three days. Tournament registration will remain open till the start of Day 2 so there's still plenty of time to get in on the action. Like every WSOP event, PokerNews will be covering this one wire-to-wire, so be sure to check back in regularly for all updates of the 2018 World Series of Poker.
