Today saw the start of Event #71: $1,500 Bounty Pot-Limit Omaha at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. The tournament drew 860 entries, generating a prize pool of $718,100. A min-cash is worth $1,512, for 129 players getting in the money, with the winner of the event taking home a prestigious WSOP gold bracelet and the $132,844 first prize.
Play began with players busting quickly as bounty hunters claimed heads from a frantic start to a frenetic finish, with the tournament clock reading just 94 players at the end of the day.
When the dust settled, it was French Mourad Amokrane that bagged the chip lead with a massive stack of 1,066,00,000, being the first player to reach the 1 million chip-mark after busting a few players in the last 20 minutes of the night. Amokrane, who travelled from Europe only a few days ago, is cashing the first WSOP event of his career in Las Vegas.
