On the first day of the WCOOP-04-M: $530 NLHE [8-Max], a guarantee breaking 3,213 field was accumulated for a total prize pool of $1,606,500, bringing forth a $231,598 first-place prize for the runners to fight over. When the dust had settled, just 200 were left in contention with all guaranteed at least a little piece of the pie as they head into the second day.
Leading the way into Day 2 is none other than PokerStars ambassador Sam "SamSquid" Grafton who cruised near the top of the field throughout the first day. He took down a pot during the last few hands of the night with a set of ducks versus the top pair of Giorgios "Geokarak" Karakousis. Grafton sent Karakousis to the rail, taking the chip lead and that is the position in which he ended the night.
