As you'd expect with any $5,000 buy-in event with rebuys, the tables were loaded with big name pros tonight for Event No. 28, the $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha with Rebuys event at the WSOP. A total of 152 players entered, up from last year's event, and there were 483 rebuys and add-ons by the end of the third level, bringing the prize pool up to $3,085,930.

Early chipleaders include Jason Mercier, Andy Black, Gavin Smith, David Benyamine, Phil Galfond, Tony G, Johnny Chan and Jeff Williams.

Others doing well on Day One and we'll just go with first/nick names 'cause we're getting lazy include Erick, Daniel, Dario, Joe, Durrr, Josh and Jesus.

Head here to see a list of the players and their current chip counts.
