First Break For the Huge Day 1C Field
 

Level 1 concludes, and the players are taking their first 20-minute break. Things are a bit more crowded in the corridors today, as the masses swarm together from all corners of the building. The Brasilia Room is completely full (and fully functional once again), and the Pavilion, Amazon, and Miranda rooms are approaching capacity, too. Well over 300 tables are in play.

2015 World Series of Poker

Action began at high noon with the defending Main Event Champion carrying the starting honors. Martin Jacobson (pictured above) was introduced as a, “true, worthy champion of the WSOP,” and he took the stage to wish the players luck. Jacobson issued the most famous words in poker before taking his own seat, finishing the first level with just over starting stack. One year ago, the gregarious Swede bagged up the chip lead after Day 1 on his way to winning the title.

Jacobson isn’t the only former Main Event Champion who chose Day 1C. Jamie Gold, Greg Merson, Ryan Riess, Joe Cada, Huck Seed, Joe Hachem, Robert Varkonyi, and Peter Eastgate are all in the building for the beginning of what they hope will be another long and profitable grind. A handful of mainstream celebrities are also in the room, including NFL free agent Richard Seymour, award-winning actor Aaron Paul (pictured below), and "All-American" Dave Swanson, a local chef and personal trainer.

2015 World Series Of Poker

At least two players have already had their Main Event cut short. Ariel Celestino turned the nuts to eliminate a gentleman who'd flopped top set, and Ihab Nsair found a set-over-set confrontation in which to score a knockout of his own. Both Celestino and Nsair finished the level with nearly 60,000 chips, just about twice their starting stack. Faraz Jaka, Matt Matros, Anthony Zinno, Owais Ahmed, and the aforementioned Riess also had productive starts to their day.

Play will resume shortly.
