A Woman Leads WPT Reno After Day 1...No That Wasn't a Typo

Wicked Chops Poker LOVES women.  So it's no surprise to us that Liz Lieu, a(n attractive) woman and not to be confused with J.J Lui, a (not so much attractive) woman who was the big stack at the WPT Five-Diamond Classic, leads the field at the WPT World Poker Challenge in Reno.

Liz_bgLieu is stacked...with about 117,200 chips.  Behind her (in chip count) is Paul Wasicka with 104,000.

Attempting to be the first woman to win a non-"Ladies Night" WPT event, Lieu (pictured at right) still has some tough competition to get through.  However, she won't have to worry about some of the toughest tournament gamers, as Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Antonio Esfandiari, Michael Mizrachi, and Erick Lindgren were among the nearly 400 casualties from the starting field of 592.

Among the big names still vying for the $1,052,890 top prize include but are not limited to: 9) Jean-Robert Bellande - 74,600, 10) Freddy Deeb - 73,600, 11) Carlos Mortensen - 73,300, 20) Barry Greenstein - 60,000, 24) Shawn Rice - 59,100, 55) Tobey Freaking Maguire - 37,800, 57) Hasan Habib - 37,100, and let's not forget about 99) Fabrice "The Frog" Soulier - 25,600.
