2010. September 21.
It seems the players who did not participate in <em>WSOPE </em>for some reason are attending <em>WPT Borgata Poker Open</em> instead, which has reached the largest player pool ever in <em>WPT </em>history, a total of 1,042 players.

WPT Royal Flush Girls at Borgata Poker Open

Of course the high number of participants might be related to the relatively small buy-in (only $3,300+$200) but knowing that most of the good players are at the WSOPE, it’s a solid turnout. It seems likely that the prize pool will be around $3,4 million, based on some very basic calculations, the winner will likely earn around $930,000, which is very good for a $3,300+$200 buy-in tournament. WPT is at its 3rd day, with 175 players remaining and the leaderboard looks as follows:

1.  John D'Agostino  -  681,200
2.  Giuseppe Pantaleo  -  668,100
3.  Francis Lamothe  -  640,000
4.  Lars Bonding  -  521,900
5.  Marc Goldman  -  506,600
6.  Jens Eisner  -  477,900
7.  Stan Sinclair  -  449,300
8.  Jeff Papola  -  447,000
9.  Kyle Loman  -  406,100
10.  Dwyte Pilgrim  -  400,000
