Observations following the first event of the 2012 season,  held at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, NJ on May 19, 2012.

  • Bigfus' consecutive victories marks the sixth time in MPT history a player has one two events they have played in a row and her second time winning back to back tournaments
  • The Trump Taj Mahal became the seventh different location to host more than one MPT event
  • Solotrombone and New Norman became the 48th and 49th players to play at least one MPT event
  • Patsy became the 31st player to participate in more than one MPT event
  • With ten players, this year's event blew away the previous record field size for the MPT season opener, besting the previous record of seven players, set three times, most recently on May 28, 2011
  • RowanB busted on the bubble for the second consecutive tournament and the fourth time in the last five events, matching the record for most frequent finishes one place out of the money, first set by Harv29 between July 5, 2007 - April 8, 2008
  • Mr. Lucky failed to cash for the first time in his three MPT appearances
  • With her elimination of New Norman, Sass broke a streak of eight straight tournaments without a "kill".  She is currently tied with Baccarat King for the longest run of tournaments without eliminating a player in MPT history, though his streak is still active.
