Season X of the World Poker Tour Season has been running since the end of May.  The season has seen two events so far, although it didn’t reach the USA until earlier last week, when the WPT Legends of Poker –  one of the most eagerly awaited events of the year, kicked off at the Bicycle Casino in Bell Gardens in the state of California.

The event could well be the largest in WPT history.  It features a $3,500 buy-in and optional re-entry is available.  The first day attracted 322 players, of which just 148 remained by the end of the day.

Day 1a saw Matthew Berkey emerge as the chip leader, with a sizeable stack of 248,500 chips

The standings at the end of Day1a are:

1st Matthew Berkey - 248,500
2nd Soi Nguyen  - 215,200
3rd Cody Slaubaugh - 188,200
4th Tyler Cornell - 179,200
5th Ryan Welch - 157,500
6th Will Failla - 148,300
7th Keith Kozar - 138,800
8th Ken Aldridge - 138,700
9th Dan O’Brien - 136,000
10th Hafiz Khan - 130,100

Keep checking back for more updates on the tournament as play continues, along with updates on the overall Season standings for 2011.  Who will be the WPT Legend of Poker this year?
