Day 1 chip leader Craig Varnell

The first 10 levels of Event #27: $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed are complete and just 202 remain. A field of 959 poker enthusiasts gathered today, filtering into six-packs and filling tables across the Amazon room.

American pro Craig Varnell leads the pack with a healthy stack of 202,600. Varnell used a hand where he flopped a set and turned a full house against an opponent's top pair on the flop and an open-ended straight draw. Varnell stayed atop the counts the rest of the way and will carry the lead into Thursday’s Day 2.

Joining Varnell at the top is Jeff Coddington, missing out on the chip lead by just two antes, bagging a stack of 202,400. Andy Spears (193,200), Jerry Payne (185,700), and John Bergman (185,500) round out the top five.

Among the notables surviving play were Mike Sowers (152,600), Steve Sung (139,800), Jeremy Ausmus (132,500), Vanessa Selbst (124,9000, Igor Kurganov (112,000), David Pham (61,900), Gaelle Baumann (61,900), and Mike Watson (59,200).

Only the top 144 spots will receive a slice of the $2,589,300 prize pool with a min-cash being worth $4,509. Of course, everyone’s sights and focus will be on the top prize though, which carries a reward of $498,682 and the coveted and prestigious WSOP gold bracelet.

A few players no longer in contention after busting on Day 1 include Doug Polk, Eddy Sabat, Fabrice Soulier, Justin Bonomo, Cate Hall, Martin Jacobson, Greg Merson, Olivier Busquet, Jonathan Duhamel, David Peters, and Griffin Benger.

The remaining players will return Thursday afternoon at 12 p.m. inside the Miranda room to battle for another ten one-hour levels.
