WSOP Main Event Update: 14 Bicycle Casino Players are on to Day 2!

The Day 1's are in the books at the 2014 WSOP Main Event, and 14 players who got their seat through The Bicycle Casino have move on to Day 2! Badei Khoury is the proverbial chip leader of the pack, bagging up 92,800 in his starting flight.  Second in chips is Chris Tolone, who has been on an absolute tear this year on the live poker scene in Los Angeles. In the last six months, Tolone has a 10th place showing in Mega Millions IX for $22,030, 18th place at the WSOP Circuit Main Event here at The Bike, and of course his winning run in the WSOP Satellite last month! There's also Bicycle Casino tournament and cash game regulars Brian Bumpas (64,850), Rupesh Pattni (50,700), and Barry Woods (48,025), amongst the group of talented players. The last man standing from this group will earn a free seat into the WPT Legends of Poker Main Event in late August. We will be updating their results each morning, so be sure to come back tomorrow for more updates. Good luck to all these players from everyone at The Bicycle Casino!
