02:31 Europe/Stockholm July 8, 2010

Two levels of play are complete on Day 1c, with some big names heading in different directions. Among the down and outs are Huck Seed, Dario Minieri, Men "the Master" Nguyen, and Scott Fischman, with each sent to the rails during the first two levels.

Among the robusto are David Williams, Daniel Negreanu, Johnny Chan, and Barny Boatman, all of whom are off to a fast start today. David Williams has been among the chip leaders for much of the day and Negreanu has nearly doubled his starting stack after surviving a few scares and pulling off some big bluffs.

Like all the Day 1s, they'll play four and a half levels on Day 1c, so players still alive have made it about halfway through their first day of poker here at the 2010 WSOP Main Event.

So far so good for Daniel Negreanu on Day 1c
