Jason Senti is in the hunt again, he has two WSOP cashes already this summer in Events #23 & #38. He’s now in the money in Event #57 – $10,000 NLHE / 6-handed. There were initially 474 runners, the field is down to 27 when play resumes later today. 1st place is a cool $1,136,197. All players are guaranteed $29,406 at this point. Good luck to Senti!

In Event #59 – $1,500 NLHE – Day 1A (no re-entry on Day 1B) was Wednesday, there were 1,740 entrants and they played down to 256 (approx 15% of the field).
