After three rounds the first day is all wrapped up and it’s really anyone game. The Las Vegas Open 2019 is underway and we’ve got a look at a handful of the lists hanging out at the top tables!

The Las Vegas Open 2019 is going strong and Day Two is primed and prepped. It’s a packed house with 661 registered players!!! That’s INSANE. The 40k champs is slated for 9 rounds and Day One covered the first 3 of the 9 rounds. We’ve got a snap shot of what the event looks like right now – but things could change drastically by the end of today.

To put this in perspective of how much things can shift: the top 89 players don’t have a loss on their record yet. That’s expected in a Swiss format with this many participants. We could see folks sky-rocket up by the end of the day and we could see the players that are currently at the top of this mountain get knocked off. But for now, let’s check out the lists!

#3 Matt Bennett – T’au Sept

#4 Michael Snider – Astra Militarum

 

The rest of the field is really close behind. At the end of Day One there are currently 4 players tied for 8th place:

It’s really looking like a log jam that is about to get broken up once the dice start rolling. With 6 more rounds to go, who knows how this one is going to shake out in the end.

 

What do you think of the top lists at the end of Day One – do you think they will hold strong or with the mob beneath them claw their way to the top?
