The 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event Championships began last week at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV.  The competition started with nearly 7,000 players, but after just the first three days, less than 1,000 remained in the tournament.

It took just one more day to eliminate another 378, ending day four of play with the 693 players that are guaranteed to walk away with some sort of cash prize.

Bracelet Winners

Some players may let this success go to their heads as they realize that they are that much closer to leaving the tournament with the coveted bracelet.  Many of the players that remain in this year’s tournament are new to the poker circuit, and have successfully beat out many veteran and former bracelet winners to get this position.
