Stay tuned for the official end of day chip counts ans seating allocations for the start of Day 2 tomorrow.

The Villain in Black

Jacques Zaicik
Jacques Zaicik
Jacques Zaicik has been a Big Game Hunter today, eliminating Team PokerStars players Vanessa Rousso and 2005 World Champion Joe Hachem. He has lost with Queens against Ace Queen and won with Queens against Kings, after the flop came {K-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}. He is a colorful character, who is fearlessly agressive and has a happy-go-lucky attitude.

Dramatic Exits

While the action has slowed down considerably, a few players have been eliminated in dramatic fashion. While it's sometimes uncertain exactly how the hands played out, it seems each elimination has been accompanied by a player jumping out of their chair in disgust and/or disbelief. Witnessing this behavior as the clock ticks down on Day 1 only supports the argument that many of the players remaining have they're eye on Day 2 and are only committing their chips when they have by far the best of it, and in at least a few cases, it seems that still hasn't been enough.

Amos Angelini Eliminated

Amos Angelini was just sent to the rail when his {A-Clubs}{K-Spades} was bested by the {A-Hearts}{10-Spades} of Danny Purkins. Angelini was in a dominating position preflop when the money went in, but that position was quickly reversed when the flop came {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{3-Hearts}. Angelini failed to catch the runner-runner draws required to stay alive and his name has been added to the list of Day 1 casualties.

Staying Out of Harm's Way

loganmark
With Day 1 drawing to a close, the action appears to have slowed down a bit. Players seem less inclined to get involved in big pots than they were just a few hours ago. While there is still quite a few eliminations to go before we reach the money, it's always possible that coasting to Day 2 is in the back of some of the players' minds.
