WPT: Bellucio, Mantle and Rios join Day 2

Five Armada regulars have made it into the first four events of the $1,100 WPT Prime Championship, a hugely popular tournament that will continue with day two on Monday with 1,309 survivors spread across the At 172 tables in the Encore Room of the Wynn Hotel in Vegas.

Achieving such numbers would require a large and impressive field of 10,512 entrants (one re-entry allowed per flight) for a total US prize pool of 10,196 $,640, which is twice the guaranteed amount of $5,000,000. The first prize is $1,386,260, although the winner also receives an entry into the 2024 WPT Championship worth $10,400, also in Las Vegas.

Last December, 5,430 entrants took part, shattering the $2,000,000 guaranteed prize pool for a total prize pool of $5,267,100. The 2023 version destroys those numbers.

Dorian Rios had to be more precise with his play choices, starting in third place at table 465 with 285,000 in chips.
