Action was fast paced on Day 1 of Event #83: $50,000 High Roller NLH with an initial starting field of 97 reduced to 32 within the space of twelve 40-minute long levels. On Day 2, with a WSOP gold bracelet getting within sight, play may slow down somewhat as the tournament field is narrowed down to five by the day's close.
Dan Colpoys (2,835,000) leads the current survivors but with late registration open until cards are in the air at 1 p.m. PDT a few more entrants may join the fray and look to spin up a ten big blind starting stack.
As one would expect with a buy in of this level, the tournament is filled with high stakes crushers including Fedor Holz (2,530,000), Brian Rast (1,635,000) and Dan Smith (860,000).
