Some of the Early Big Stacks on Day 1C

Some stacks of 100,000 are starting to pop up throughout the room as we enter the final three levels of the night. Leading the way currently is Tyler Cornell, though he's got some close competitiors, including last year's 3rd place finisher Ryan Goindoo, who is over 100,000 so far. Check out those two, along with a couple other big stacks right now, below.

Dinner Update From Legends of Poker Day 1C

Former NFL Star Richard Seymour In the Field Today
We had a grand total of 232 players come out for the final Day 1 flight of our Main Event, and 171 of them have survived long enough to make it to dinner break. Tyler Cornell currently holds the big stack with 124,000 but he's got plenty of competition close behind, including last year's 3rd place finisher Ryan Goindoo, who currently has 108,000.

Other notables still alive include Chris Demaci, Christina Lindley, Keven Stammen, and retired NFL Star Richard Seymour, who is back at it for another shot after busting yesterday.

Speaking of busting, Phil Laak, Shane Schleger, Sam Stein, and Sean Jazayeri are amongst the players who have been eliminated today, and will need to come back tomorrow at 1 PM and buy-in directly for $10,000 if they want to keep their shot at a WPT title alive.
