Day 1 of Event 3 at the World Series of Poker is in the books after three rounds of play. The first ever Heads-up No Limit Hold’em/Pot Limit Omaha mix had a $3,000 price tag and 317 players signed up. At the end of play 64 players are advancing to Day 2 and are guaranteed a min-cash of $3,395.

Annette Obrestad (last woman standing), Justin Bonomo, Guillaume Darcourt, David Williams, Eric Froehlich, David Benefield, John Racener, Andy Frankenberger, Jason Koon, Sam Stein, Josh Arieh and David Chiu are a few of the returning notables.

Two of the heads-up matches for Round 3 drew heavy onlookers – Eric Froehlich vs. Shaun Deeb and Guillaume Darcourt vs. Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier. Froehlich’s win over Deeb happened pretty fast – Deeb called 800 to see a flop of {Q-Diamonds} {J-Hearts} {8-Hearts} and then check-called 1,200. He called 2,500 on the {K-Hearts} turn and then check-called all in. Froehlich tabled {Q-Hearts} {J-Spades} {7-Hearts} {3-Clubs} and Deeb mucked his hand.

The start of the tournament was a star-studded affair with Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Ben Lamb, Carlos Mortensen, Grospellier, Jonathan Duhamel, Eugene Katchalov, Mohsin Charania, Jeffrey Lisandro, Rob and Michael Mizrachi, Jake Cody, Thomas Marchese and Marco Traniello all sat to play. However, none of them made it through to Day 2.

Players will return to Day 2 with 72,000, 24,000 to start with two rebuy lammers behind. Another three rounds are in store, with the day ending at 16 players. The restart will have cards in the air at 1:00 PM in the Amazon Room. Be sure to follow all the WSOP action live on PokerNews.com.

Opponent: {A-Spades} {6-Clubs}

The board ran {8-Diamonds} {5-Clubs} {5-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} {Q-Hearts} and Williams will return tomorrow.

At a nearby table Jim Collopy finished up his match as well.

Three Becomes Two, Almost

MarcC • Level 9: 500-1,000, 0 ante

David Williams' match is one of only three remaining in this round. We had the chance of that being reduced to two after Williams got the last of his chips in.

He held {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} and was in good shape versus his opponent's {a-Clubs}{7-Hearts}.

The board ran {q-Clubs}{5-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}.

The Team PokerStars Pro had a 48,000 to 24,000 advantage after that hand.

Kaverman Nit-Rolls to Victory

MarcC

We went over to speak to Byron Kaverman after it had been announced that he'd beaten Anthony Lellouche.

Kaverman was, despite his win, feeling bad about his victory. This is only his third or fourth time playing PLO and he was in a spot on the river where Lellouche bet his last 13,000 into him. Kaverman sat thinking about whether to call for two minutes when he realised he actually had a straight fort the near nuts.

He checked once more, was right, called and apologised to the Frenchman. Lellouche, as expected, took it like a gentleman.
