WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star Lost Many of Its Shooting Stars

Brandon Cantu, not Emperor's Club Kristen, leads WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star after Day 1aThe WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star tournament is a fave among players on the circuit. Many "name" pros have a $5,000 bounty on them, and the tournament leader at the end of each day collects $10,000.

With Day 1a wrapped, 46 players remain from the initial field of 146. A cursory look at those numbers indicate that 100 people were thusly eliminated.

Leading all Day 1a survivors is 2006 WSOP bracelet winner Brandon Cantu with 242,300. Cantu eliminated shooting stars Bill Edler and John Juanda on his way to the chip lead. We'll go out on a limb and also say that Cantu will have a year's supply of Blue Diamond Almonds coming his way as well.

Only five Day 1a shooting stars actually survived. They include the spectacularly breasted J.C. Tran, Men "The Master" Nguyen, Kathy Liebert (a woman), Layne Flack and Miami John Cernuto (who should've ceased qualifying for shooting star status around the Bush 41's administration).
