David Prociak of Kissimmee, Florida, has a sizable chip lead.

* The $1,000 buy-in Tag Team No-limit Hold ’em event featured several interesting pairings, including professional poker player and author Jonathan Little captaining a team with his parents. Vladimir Geshkenbein and Tobias Ziegler bagged the lead after Day 1 with 130 teams remaining.

“I play the biggest limits. … I’ll play anything for just about any amount of money with anyone. So that to me says a lot more career-wise than some tournament wins, although tournament wins are what everyone sees.” — Rast
