Chris Priday leads the field in the annual Ladies Event at the 2013 World Series of Poker, finishing the day with 96,200 in chips. A total of 954 players took their seats at the beginning of the day. After 10 levels of play, only 122 remain.

Several famous players and recognizable names were in the field today. Most of them didn’t survive the day, including Vicky Coren, Vanessa Selbst, Vanessa Rousso, Cherish Andrews, Jennifer Tilly, Jennifer Shahade, Kara Scott, Susie Isaacs, and Cyndy Violette. A few fared better, however, and Liv Boeree, Jackie Glazier, and Danielle “dmoongirl” Andersen will all return tomorrow.

This year, the WSOP changed its policy for the Ladies Event. Officially, the event has a buy-in of $10,000 and is open to anybody, both men and women. However, female entrants receive a 90% discount. The change was brought about by male players who in past years have taken advantage of legal loopholes to disrupt the spirit of the Ladies Event. It appears the change was successful, as we were informed that nobody paid the full $10,000.

Following Priday on the leader board are Sari F. Utchen (80,500 in chips), Lauren Billings, (74,600), Vanessa Kade (71,300) and Kristen Bicknell (69,400). Exactly 117 players will make the money, so five players who return tomorrow will leave empty-handed. The rest are guaranteed a payout of at least $1,631, but every player is eyeing the $173,922 and the WSOP gold bracelet that comes with it.

Play resumes Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m. Join us here at PokerNews as we bring you live updates from Day 2 of the 2013 WSOP Ladies Event.
