WSOP has begun with Colossus.  Day 1 started with two flights, a and b and well-known names, Chris Ferguson and Phil Hellmuth are already out of the event. Day 1 marked more than 3500 entries and big names out of the picture.

It’s been 4 years since Colossus began. It is one of the most popular events of WSOP. The buy-in priced at $565 attracts thousands of recreational players across the globe. Though it’s one of the starting events of WSOP, it feels like a massive Main Event tournament holding prize money of $1million.

Last year’s winner Thomas Pomponio defeated a field o 18,054 to grab the $1million and a WSOP bracelet.

It was in 2015 that Colossus was inaugurated and it saw 22,374 entries flowing in. It was the largest live poker tournament ever held and in the first three years, more than 62,000 entries have made their way, creating a prize pool of over $10million.

It’s a great tournament for amateurs seeking a share of glory at WSOP. A piece of advice from Jonathan Little’s blog might come handy for the newbie.

The field entries on Day 1A stood at 2,024 and on Day 1B at 1,471. The count soon shrank to just 55. In-flight 1A, 304 entries made money- cashing a minimum of $833 guaranteed.

1 Re-entry per flight is available for the players, and they can play as many flights as they want to hope to move into day 2 which is scheduled to commence on Tuesday at 2 pm.
