The 30 Players That Skipped Day 1
Level 9: 800-1,600, 200 ante
Here's the confirmed list of 30 players who registered for this tournament after the end of Day 1, in alphabetical order by last name:
Nashaat Antonious, Narendra Banwari, Andy Bloch, Todd Brunson, Mohamad Chahine, Nicole Curran, Freddy Deeb, Chris Ferguson, Danny Fuhs, Gary Gibbs, Hasan Habib, Isaac Haxton, Phil Hellmuth, John Juanda, Alexander Keating, Tony Korfman, Chance Kornuth, Joseph Lacob, Samuel Leckie, Howard Lederer, Nestor Martinez, Shawn Melamed, Andy Miller, Julian Movsesian, Luke Nettles, Raymond Padgett, Erik "Erik123" Sagstrom, Scott Siever, Kenny Tran, and David Williams.
With 275 total entrants, these 30 players represent 10.9% of the field. If all other factors were equal (which they never are in poker), we could expect one of these players to reach the final 9.
It'll be interesting to follow the progress of this group through the tournament to see if their delayed strategy pays off for them or not.
