By the Numbers: Deepstacks Poker Tour Main Event 1A

Registration has closed for the day, and according to the tournament clock, we had a grand total of 80 players today. Play will continue through the end of Level 14, which will probably be around 2 AM tonight. Once we reach that point, the players will bag and tag for the night.

Exclusive Interview with Day 1A Host Tristan Wade

Over the first break, we were able to catch up with today's host Tristan Wade. Wade is a young pro who won a bracelet at the WSOPE in 2011. Amongst the topics of discussion were his involvement with Deepstacks, their recent partnership with the WPT, and his plans for the WSOP this summer. Enjoy our interview with Wade, and be sure to stay tuned for video interview with Mike Matusow and Michael Mizrachi over the weekend!
