The first day is a wrap in the $2,200 High Roller at the World Series of Poker Circuit Planet Hollywood. A total of 99 entries were registered for Day 1 at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas in this $200,000 guaranteed event.

The field played through 12 40-minute levels on Day 1, and late registration is still open until the start of Day 2 play, scheduled to commence Tuesday at 3 p.m.

Some of the players bagging big at the end of Day 1a included Sean Perry (298,000), Thomas Peebles (256,000) Dan Colpoys (231,500), Marc MacDonnell (196,000) and Tim McDermott (175,000).

The 99 entries brings the tournament close to the guarantee, with only one more entry needed to reach that number. A total of 30 players made it through to the end of the day.

Those who late register before the start of Day 2 will come back with a 15 big blind starting stack, as the blinds will resume at 1000/2000/2000 for Level 13 when the tournament restarts.

Other notables still in the hunt include Eric Baldwin (121,500), Calvin Anderson (69,500) and Arkadiy Tsinis (50,000).

Some of the names not making it through (but still eligible for re-entry) include Bryan Piccioli, Colin Dentan, Upeshka De Silva and Adam Demersseman.

Day 2 is scheduled for 40-minute levels, and the field will play down to a winner Tuesday.

Day 1 is Done!

GeoffFisk • Level 12: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

The opening day of the $2,200 High Roller is a wrap. A recap and end-of-day chip counts will follow shortly.

Two More Hands

GeoffFisk • Level 12: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

The field will play two more hands before wrapping up for the night.

Perry Ousts Dentan

GeoffFisk • Level 12: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

Sean Perry opened to 3,500 from middle position, and Colin Dentan called from the small blind.

Dentan checked the {j-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{2-Spades} flop, Perry bet 3,000, and Dentan check-raised to 10,000, with Perry making the call.

Dentan went all in for his last 47,500 on the {10-Spades} turn, and Perry made the call.

Colin Dentan: {q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Sean Perry: {k-Spades}{6-Spades}

Dentan had an open-ended royal flush/straight flush draw, but the river fell {k-Hearts}, ending Dentan's High Roller run, for now.

McDermott KOs Piccioli

GeoffFisk • Level 12: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

With {k-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} showing on the flop, Tim McDermott bet 6,500, Bryan Piccioli rasied all in to 29,300, and McDermott called. Piccioli was at risk going to the turn and river.

Bryan Piccioli: {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Tim McDermott: {k-Spades}{10-Spades}

Piccioli had a royal flush draw and plenty of out, but the turn {10-Clubs} and river {4-Diamonds} brought no additional help, sending Piccioli to the exit.

Peebles Shows Up, Does Damage

GeoffFisk • Level 11: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante

Late registrant Thomas Peebles is already up to near three- time the starting stack. He added to that total in a recent pot, betting 11,000 into a 20,000 pot with {3-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{10-Spades}{3-Clubs}{9-Spades} on the board from the button.

His middle position opponent, who had checked to Peebles on the river, folded.
