[Removed:105] Day 1a Chipleader

The first event of a 28-event schedule at Playground Poker Room's World Cup of Cards has finished. There were 161 players all vying for the 13 Day 2 spots. In the end, Brent Mccue just missed Day 2 when he got all in preflop against Kathy Sawers with {a-}{j-}. Sawers had {k-}{k-} and held. She will enter Day 2 with 169,800.

Nick-Real Seide was eliminated just before Mccue after having the chip lead for a good portion of the day. [Removed:105] took over the chip lead and ended the day with 399,100, almost 100,000 ahead of Eric Ranger who finished with the second largest stack (301,900).

Day 2 will be Sept. 13th, but until then each of the players who cashed today can play one of the nine remaining starting flights. If they make Day 2 again, they forfeit their smaller stack and earn CAD $400 on top of the CAD $1,500 for the forfeited stack. Day 1b starts Saturday at 7 p.m. local time.

The World Cup of Cards is just starting and you can follow the action all month long from Playground Card Room right here on pokernews.com. Follow @pokernews on Twitter for Periscope and Facebook live broadcasts, as well as updates on all of the events here at the World Cup of Cards.

Nick-Real Seide Busts in 15th Place; Bubble Time

AnTh0nyWTF • Level 17: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Poker can be a cruel game. Fast structures can make it even more so. Nick-Real Seide experienced his fair share in the last few hands. After losing 40% of his stack in a previous had, a few hands later he lost another 75% against Aidan Quin.

With just 29,000 left, Seide spent the last few hands moving all-in preflop. Seide found a double up against Albert N when his {a-}{9-} caught a nine on the river against Albert's {a-}{10-}. A hand later Seide found himself behind with {q-Clubs}{j-Spades} against an opponent's {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}. Seide couldn't find any help and has been elliminated.

Albert N Triples Up; Rest of Counts From Table 54

AnTh0nyWTF • Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

A three-way all-in saw a huge shift in chips across table 54. Nick-Real Seide had both Albert N and Prosper [Removed:250]'s tournament lives on the line as both men were all-in preflop.

Seide: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}
[Removed:250]: {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Albert N: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}

The board ran out {k-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} giving Albert N top pair and the monster triple up. [Removed:250] took down the side pot almost the same size as the main pot leaving his stack about the same. Unfortunately Seide had the worst of it taking a huge hit.
