The third and final flight of Day 1 at the World Poker Tour Legends of Poker was completed a few hours ago, with another 328 players attempting to do enough to make it through into Day 2. Only 135 players could do that though, which meant that there is now a total of 270 players are safely through from Day 1.
Fabrice Touil finished the day with the biggest stack, though only just as his 272,400 was not too far ahead of the 269,000 that Ryan Goindoo had amassed.
Amongst the notables to progress on Day 1c were Ryan Reiss, Brian Yoon, David Sands, Paul Volpe, Dan O’Brien, Andy Frankenberger and Allen Cunningham, with many of them achieving it after firing a number of bullets at this event so far.
Many of these players are already looking to what a result here could do for the various player of the year races going on, with there being just four months of the year remaining.

Bagged 134,700 for day 2. Lost a decent amount the last 30min so kinda annoyed but I’ll take it — Brian Yoon (@byoonz) September 1, 2013
Although many players fell on the third flight of the opening day, they do still have one final chance to re-enter before the start of Day 2 if they so wish. Many of them already have tweeted that they will be doing just that.
