The 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event opened strong with the best Day 1a turnout in years on Saturday. That trend continued on Sunday.
The biggest Day 1b field in the past six years showed up to the Rio with a 2,164 overflow crowd taking part. Ultimately that turnout brought the two-day total to 2,959.
There were 1,643 players who made it to the bag-up in a day that started off with an explosive hand, one that everyone who saw won't soon forget.
