Event #46: $50,000 Poker Players' Championship

The Runner-Ups Face Each Other

• Nivel 1

Last year's runner-up Don Nguyen's been spotted in the early goings here as well, and he faces Bruno Fitoussi, who came second in this tournament back in 2007. Nguyen came second to Matthew Ashton for $1,096,254 while the Frenchman raked in $1,278,720 when he was the last man standing to face the ultimate champ, Freddy Deeb.

Also on this table we spotted John Monnette, winner of the $2,500 8-Game in 2011, and a regular in the biggest mixed game cash games throughout the year. Rob Mizrachi, winner of last night's $1,500 Dealers Choice tournament, and Allen Kessler, runner up in two WSOP events, are also at this table to make it yet another stacked one here on Day 1 of one of the most prestigious tournaments of the year.
