2007 World Series: Day 1B set for the lucky?

If you've not yet noticed the following, I'd suspect you're reading from somewhere other than Las Vegas:

Today's date is 07/07/07.

For the past 24 hours, people with a heart for superstition have been hopping off planes and into casinos for what a lot of folks are considering to be the luckiest day of the century. Wedding chapels are overflowing. Even my friends John and Jen are tying the knot here today.

This hour begins Day 1B of the 2007 World Series. For as much choice as folks had in getting into certain flights, I'm wondering if today's field will be any larger.

Taking a look back to Day 1A, I'm pleased to report Team PokerStars' Barry Greenstein finished Day 1 in strong fashion with 93,600 in chips.

For the full list of PokerStars players and who finished Day 1A, visit the PokerStars World Series Chip Counts page.

In the meantime, here are some of the biggest names in the field today:

Tom McEvoy
Isabelle Mercier
Bill Chen
Joe Hachem
Andre Akkari
Luca Pagano

We'll be back with complete coverage in just a bit.
