845 signed up to take part in the first day of the 2018 World Series of Poker Main Event.

The 2018 World Series of Poker $10,000 no-limit hold’em main event kicked off with the first of three starting days beginning at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, July 2nd.

This will be the 49th WSOP Main event and once again takes place at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino, running from Jul. 2-14.

Defending WSOP Main Event champion Scott Blumstein entered the fray on Day 1a and, despite not being involved in any of the action yet, has already made an impact on his table. All smiles, very chatty and interacting with the other players at the table, the atmosphere is very relaxed.

The table also features three-time WSOP bracelet winner Brian Yoon, Jean Montury and Lacey Jones.

Former WSOP Main Event winner Jerry Yang has almost doubled his stack early on and sits well above the average in the second level of the day.
