Event #49: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Welcome to Day 1 of Event #49: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Who will take down another gold bracelet in Event +49?

We're set for the noon kickoff of another 2014 World Series of Poker bracelet event with today's Event #49: $5.000 No-Limit Hold'em.

Last year, 784 players entered the prestigious event, and Manchester's Matt Perrins topped them all to take home the first-place prize of $792,275. He defeated a tough final table that included Seth Berger (finished third), Antonio Buonanno (fourth), Matt Berkey (fifth), and Joe Serock (eighth).

The plan for today is to play 10 levels, each lasting one hour. The players will receive 20-minute breaks after every two levels, and a dinner break after Level 6. Everyone will start with a hefty stack of 15,000, so expect things to start off at a relatively tame pace and pick up as the day goes on. Stay tuned to PokerNews as we bring you all of the relevant live updates.
