Day 1 of Team Limited is always crazy busy, and Grand Prix Portland was no exception. With nearly 2,000 players and many more as spectators for the, well, spectacle that was this event, it was a pretty wild first day of the main event.

Even though it wasn't the first day of the event. Far from it, in fact. The Event began on Thursday, making it the first four-day Grand Prix in Magic history.

Ben Friedman is one of many pros still in contention in Portland.

As it stands, we have 49 teams about to kick off Day 2, all shooting for the Top 4 spot and the crucial Pro Points that come with the first Grand Prix of the Premier Play season. The favorites at this moment? It has to be the best the Pantheon has to offer, with Reid Duke, Huey Jensen and Owen Turtenwald (2-4 in the world) sitting at the top tables as we begin the day.
