The entry count quickly jumped over 100 after the start of the day and the luck of the draw put to of the toughest players next to each other.

Brian Hastings and Michael Tureniec are sitting next to each other and they have nearly $8,000,000 in combined earnings (that’s just live poker, both have huge results online) along with five WSOP bracelets.

Tureniec also has two SHRP trophies including the WPTDeepStacks Immokalee title we hosted. Hastings has four of the five combined bracelets and is a danger in any tournament he enters. But Hastings is running on short rest today after recently returning from his honeymoon.
