Michael Noori of California bagged the Day 1 chip lead in Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship as part of the 52nd annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) with a massive stack of 345,000. Noori, who is after his first WSOP bracelet, joins 72 others who will return for Day 2 in the four-day tournament on Oct. 5 at 2 p.m. Pacific Time.

Day 1 witnessed a total of 128 entrants and play lasted for 10 hours. Many of the biggest names in poker were in the Day 1 field and survived to see Day 2, including Daniel Negreanu, Mike Matusow, Erik Seidel and David Benyamine, who ended the day sixth in chips with a stack of 198,000. Shaun Deeb and Phil Hellmuth both late-registered the tournament and sat down toward the end of the day.

Noori wasn't the only player to advance with a tower of chips as Jerry Wong, Chad Eveslage, Andrew Yeh, and Christopher Vitch all bagged at least 200,000 in chips.

Other players who made it through the first day of play include Yuri Dzivielevski, Brandon Shack-Harris, Ryan Laplante, Benny Glaser, Shirley Rosario, Bart Hanson, and defending champion Frankie O'Dell.

Some notable bustouts on Day 1 include Dan Shak, Carol Fuchs, and Allen Kessler.

That wraps up Day 1 coverage. The PokerNews live reporting team will be back tomorrow to bring you Day 2 updates.
