The clock says there are 173 players registered for this event so far, but we've also lost a bunch. Among this bunch we see a lot of big name pro's.
Philippe Boucher won this event last year when he beat a field of 336 in order to claim the €166,427 first place prize. But we already know there will be a new champion.
Besides Boucher there were plenty of other familiar faves to have busted. Jussi Nevanlinna, who came off a fifth place finish in the €5,300 Pot-Limit Omaha, is gone just as 2010 WSOP Player of the Year Frank Kassela. Here's a list of who else was already knocked out.
