It was an action-packed opening day for Event #50: $600 Mixed No-Limit Hold'em/Pot-Limit Omaha (Eight Handed) that witnessed a total of 1,569 entries in this event that first was started in 2019 to generate an $800,190 prize pool. After 22 levels of play over the course of 13 hours, the field was whittled down to just 61 players who have all secured a spot in the money.

The chip leader returning for Day 2 is two-time WSOP bracelet winner Eric Froehlich (2,550,000) who was once the youngest player to win a bracelet. Both Froehlich and Kris Burchfield (2,530,000) are the only two players to finish the night with over 2 million in chips. Mario Arribas (1,730,000), Michael Thomas (1,620,000), and Trenton Vaderlake (1,030,000) will be among the player to keep an eye on Wednesday's Day 2.
