Day 1 of the PokerStars WCOOP-16-M: $1,050 NLHE Thursday Thrill Special Edition was on offer for players today to give them another shot at a share of the $,1000,000 guaranteed prize pool. In the end, 1,048 entries flocked to the freezeout tournament creating a prize pool of $,1048,000 with 127 players getting paid aside from any collected bounties throughout the day.

By the time the bubble dust had settled, 108 players have claimed their spot for Day 2 with Matheus "ThugWaffle" Resende at the top of the counts with 3,470,298 in chips. Resende is followed by Diego "Mr.Bittar" Bittar (2,814,266), Dmitry "yurasov1990" Yurasov (2,743,266), Pavels "Rigapols81" Spirins (2,668,574), and Tyler "Wonderboy222" Goatcher (2,256,106) in the top five.

But with over 100 players still left in the field, there's still loads of poker talent left in contention. Some of the more familiar names and faces include Dylan "ImaLucSac" Linde, Henri "buehlero" Buehler, Ben "jenbizzle" Jones, Yuri "theNERDguy" Dzivielevski, and Marc "14alonso14" Macdonnell in the top quarter of the leader board.

It would take almost all of the seven hours and 45 minutes of play on Day 1 for the bubble to burst as "KingKomeron" was eliminated by "bunkazai" in the penultimate level of the night when they ran their ace-king into the ace-seven of the latter. The seven on the flop meant the remaining players were all in the money.

Another 19 players fell within the last 15 minutes of the day before play would end. Gianluca "Tankanza" Speranza, Daan "DaanOss" Mulders, and Luigi "Il-Giuglia" D'Alterio were among those who would cash but not bag.

When the players return for Day 2 on Friday, September 4, at 7:05 p.m. CEST, they will finish the last few minutes of Level 21 which has a small blind of 10,000, a big blind of 20,000, and a running ante of 2,500. All players have already secured the min-cash of $1,152 but they will all have their sights set for that first-place prize of $73,667 and more bounties along the way.

PokerNews will be there from the start to bring you the live updates right here so make sure to return for all the latest news.
