The World Poker Tour Montreal may have just finished up yesterday but there is already another WPT event going on as Day 1 at the WPT Five Diamond Poker Classic has just been completed. An unofficial figure of 322 entrants has been quoted by the WPT as the casino staff has requested until the morning to reveal the official figures.
What we do know is that it is likely that Allen Pock is the chip leader on 155,925 chips and leads a tough looking top ten that includes the likes of Jeff Madsen, Jordan Cristos and Matt Glantz.
There was plenty of action at this re-entry event as players could buy in as many times as they liked which obviously encouraged some ultra loose play and massive pots. Other players to get through and into Day 2 included PokerStars Team Pro Daniel Negreanu, Christian Harder, David Sands, Andy Frankenberger, Christina Lindley, Micah Raskin, Mohsin Charania and David Rheem.
Ended day 1 of WPT Bellagio with 89k started with 30k. Fabulous start, restart tomorrow at noon.
