That wasn’t the only milestone of the day, as during the shuffling and dealing of the cards, Chris Moneymaker
Before we list the results of the Spanish players on Day 1, let’s start with what they achieved at the table. No matter what happens on the turn and river from now on, the world champion is already at home.

Felt the day was once again very good for our interest. From the moment Jorge Ufano doubled up on the second hand, it’s clear that our players today are not ready for the odds and the stats that at least 25% of the players on the field must do Nor was fired in the top five levels.
The tables I got were not at all good for a typical first day in this tournament. But in the second hand I played, I won straight three jacks with QcTc in 2d8c9sJd3s, from the original 60,000 to 140,000. I don’t dream of starting this way. pic.twitter.com/6AwbkG8p9D

In fact, in 24 possible victims, there are only four unfortunate victims: Javier Tsunami, Raul Martinez, Joaquin Olmedo and Ramon Fernandez.
However, as far as flights go, this day 1D wasn’t the best day of stacks out of the previous four flights, especially due to poor chip distribution.
There are some notable chips like Jorge, who ended up with188,000 points, José Ignacio Aguilera > (179,000), or René Lázaro, who led the Expedition as a whole in the early rounds, lost his entire stack on the final leg after four days of play to finish with 181,400 points.
One player even made it into the second pile as the Reds surpassed 200,000 points.
This is Sergio Aido, who started the day, sitting on the left side of the tsunami, and although he is not the executioner, has direct influence on his elimination Influence. The fallen chips are now in the hands of the day’s top Spaniard, who still owes the main event a live ITM – which he once cashed in one of the online editions. He can use his own 204,000 points to transfer to the bonus.
On the other hand, when the number of chips counted is lower than the original 60,000 points, the number of chips is not less than 8 points. Always in the absence of a formal report, the report will be released around noon.

Nicholas Rigby is the chip leader and the only player to score over 400,000 in the entire tournament, having already 56th in 2021 ME and leaves that position
Not far behind him is Chris Hunichen “BigHuni”, the new qualifier top 5 most respected player. This is a little surprising. Chance Kornuth, also one of the big stacks of the day, has 241,000 points.
If you want journalists to give you more attention, then you have to be part of the circus. Phil Ivey did it himself (78,900).
Dan Cates and Phil Hellmuth did exactly that the first time they played the Main Event together.
🦁 Quel cirque @phil_hellmuth

It had an immediate effect and Phil, dressed as Zahmer, nearly fell over the TV table as he continued watching the show. He scored 105,800 points when he passed his hat to ask about the will.
Poor Daniel Cates was sent off for helping the team. Locked in a cage that clearly could have been looser and more comfortable, he took makeup lessons that undoubtedly must have been a chore, and ended up being eliminated before the dinner break.
