Big Name Busts at the 2013 WSOP Main Event

Day 1b of the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event got underway on Sunday and there were already some notable eliminations.

Saying “Good Bye” after Day 1a play included the likes of funnyman Jason Alexander, Soi Nguyen, Abe Mosseri, TJ Cloutier, Chino Rheem, Sopranos actor Robert Iler, Sam Barnhart, and 2011 Main Event Champ Pius Heinz.

Early ousters on Sunday included Greg Raymer, one of the most successful players on the Heartland Poker Tour circuit, and 2012 WSOP bracelet winner Greg Ostrander AKA "Maverick". 

The man widely credited for making poker a worldwide mainstream phenomenon, Chris Moneymaker, looked to be on the verge of elimination Sunday evening.   Jonathan Aguiar and Erick Lindgren were also on the ropes.
