Day 1a is history at the World Series of Poker Main Event. A number that seemed to surprise many was the drop in attendance from Day 1a last year. Last year, Day 1a drew 1,297 players. This year, just 1,116 players entered the event.

We knew that Jeff Lisandro was sick, but c’mon. Three bracelets and each in a different discipline of stud is just insane. Three bracelets in a year is an amazing feat but to achieve the “Triple Crown of Stud” in addition to the bracelets is just short of amazing. Do you know how many players have achieved the triple crown of stud? Including Lisandro, there are four players total that have done this in the history of the WSOP.

Matt Graham won his second WSOP bracelet the other night, winning the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha World Championship. His bracelet win paralleled his first bracelet win in so many ways. I was on hand covering Graham’s first bracelet win last year in the $1,500 Limit Holdem Shootout. The final table drug on well into the morning hours and at one point, Graham had a crippled stack.

Jeff Lisandro Is a Stud

Jeff Lisandro is a stud…. player. 3 bracelets in stud variants? What the hell? I was happy to see Jeff win his first bracelet in 2007 in 7 Card Stud and I thought it was a nice anomaly that he won his 2nd in the same event. Now, he has won the Stud 8 or Better World Championship.
