Day 1a Completed

Joe Tehan In Trouble

Joe Tehan has only 10,000 left after tangling with Huck Seed. Tehan raised to 2,200 from the button and Seed called. The flop came down {10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} and Seed check-called Tehan's 3,000 bet. When the turn came {10-Diamonds}, Seed check-called, this time for 5,000. The river was the {5-Spades} and both players checked. Seed showed {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}, and Tehan mucked.

Andy Black Eliminated

In two hands and in quick succession, Andy Black is out.

First hand:

A player limps, Black raises to 2,400 on the button, and his opponent calls. The flop comes J-10-6 with two hearts and both players check. The turn is the {8-Diamonds}. Black's opponent checks, he bets 8,000 and is called. The river is the {3-Hearts}. Black bets 15,000 and his opponent calls. Black announces he has nothing. His opponent has 7-7 and takes it.

Second hand:

Soon after, Black is busted when on a 3-4-3-7 board, Black bets, another player goes all in, and Black calls with 4-5. His opponent has A-A, the river is a jack, and Black is out and leaves in a hurry.

Black was the chip leader for a good part of the day, but it did not last.

Bertrand Grospellier
Bertrand Grospellier
The action was folded to the button who limped in and the small blind called. Bertrand Grospellier moved all in for his last 9,500 from the big blind. The player on the button made the call and the small blind got out of the way. Grospellier rolled over {A-Spades}{A-Clubs} while the button had {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}.

The board came {K-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{2-Spades}{9-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. As Grospellier chipped up his pot he tossed the dealer his Aces, saying "I've been waiting for these alllll day."

Dan Harmetz Takes One Down

Dan Harmetz
Dan Harmetz
Facing a 3,000 preflop raise from a player under the gun, Dan Harmetz called from the button and the action was heads-up going into the flop.

The first three cards off the deck were {A-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{3-Spades}. The UTG player made it 5,000 to go and Harmetz raised it up to 12,000. After a solid minute in the tank, Harmetz' opponent folded his hand.

Before raking the pot, Harmetz tabled {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}. He's currently sitting on 33,200 chips.

Battle of the Big Stacks

Board: {10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}

Julian Gardner, seventh in chips, and Randall Amiel, eleventh in chips, clash in this hand. Amiel limps in middle position, the small blind calls, and Gardner in the big blind checks the option. On the flop, the small blind checks to Gardner, who bets 1,400 and Amiel calls. On the turn, Gardner bets 2,400 and is again called. On the river, Gardner checks. Amiel bets 2,000, and Gardner calls. Amiel shows {K-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for the rivered straight and Gardner mucks. Amiel is at 125,300.
