WPT World Championship: Billy Baxter, Darrell "Deep" Dicken Lead Day 1A

The 2008 WPT World Championship kicked off at the Bellagio in Las Vegas today. A somewhat disappointing field of 210 showed for Day 1a. The anticipated 450-ish total field will fall way short of the record 639 of last year (won by Carlos Mortensen, who banked the $3,970,415 top prize).

Chip counts are still unofficial at post time, but leading Day 1a action (as far as you know) is Billy Baxter with 167,150. He's followed by 2008 Wicked Chops Poker Award Winner (best nickname category) Darrell "Deep" Dicken (163,000).

Other early big stacks include our favorite scarf-wearing-Euro Dario Minieri, Steve Billirakis, Brandon Cantu, and Mike Sexton.
