In what is set to be the first full ring, no re-entry $1,500 no-limit hold'em event for the summer, there is sure to be plenty of action and great story lines to follow. Last year in this event, poker pro Brent Hanks won his first WSOP bracelet and $517,725. Not only that he beat a stacked final table including the likes of Vanessa Selbst, JP Kelly, and Andrew Badecker to do so.
Last year, 2,101 players came out to play creating a $2,836,350 prize pool. Expect to see similar numbers today. Another interesting note about this tournament is that players were able to reach the money on their first day of play, one of the only tournaments that happened in. We'll see if we can match that on our way to crown a new WSOP bracelet winner.
Action is set to start in a little over an hour, where player's will begin with 4,500 tournament chips. Make sure you stay tuned into PokerNews.com for all the updates.
