Event 52: $2,500 10-Game Mix - Six-Handed

Day 1 Completed

Hang Leads After Day 1

Level 8
Tommy Hang - chip leader.
Tommy Hang - chip leader.

Day 1 of Event 52: $2,500 10-Game Mix – Six – Handed is in the book, and Tommy is your chip leader with 74,000 chips.

A total of 421 players registered, generating a prize pool of $957,775. The top 48 players are guaranteed $4,309, the six final tablists will earn a minimum of $30,169, and the winner will take home $244,259 to go along with a shiny new WSOP gold bracelet.

Dozens of notables were in the field today, and plenty busted before the eight levels of play were finished, including Shaun Deeb, Jennifer Harman, Andy Frankenberger, Martin Staszko, Allen Bari, Chris Viox, Jonathan Aguiar, and our very own Remko Rinkema. Rinkema lost a very big Razz hand before the 30-minute dinner break, and was unable to recover, while Aguiar and Bari made it all the way to Level 8 before they bowed out. Aguiar lost a fairly large four-way Badugi pot, where a player check-raised him after the final draw. Aguiar called off most of his stack, but was forced to fold when his opponent tabled a seven-six-five Badugi.

Joining Hang at the top of the counts are Steve Chanthabouasy (54,000), Vincent van der Fluit (53,000), Bryn Kenney (40,200), and James Mackey (34,200). Kenney is looking to make his third final table of the 2012 WSOP, Mackey his second, and van der Fluit could become the first multiple bracelet winner of the 2012.

Play will resume at 3 p.m. local time tomorrow, so be sure to return for all of your up-to-the-minute updates from this and every event at the 2012 World Series of Poker!

Aguiar's Losing Sleep


Four people were headed to the first draw, including Jonathan Aguiar, Mark Provenzano, Francesco Barbaro and Fu Wong. Every player drew two, except Aguiar, who drew one. All four players checked.

On the second draw, Wong and Aguiar drew one, and Provenzano and Barabaro drew two. Wong checked, Aguiar bet, and only Wong called.

On the final draw, Wong drew one card, and Aguiar stood pat. Wong checked his last card, checked, and Aguiar bet. Wong check-raised.

"This is too good to fold," Aguiar sighed, calling.

Wong tabled {7-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{2-Hearts}, and Aguiar mucked, leaving himself with just a few hundred chips.

"I've lost at least 15,000 chips in Badugi hands tonight," he said.

Aguiar busted a few hands later, and won't be able to sleep in until 3 p.m.

Late Restart

Level 8

At the World Series of Poker, events that start at 5 p.m. tend to restart at 2 p.m. the next day. This is because play ends at around 2 a.m., and they want to allow players to have a full 12 hours to rest before play resumes.

A few minutes ago, a tournament director announced that Event 52: $2,500 10-Game Mix - Six-Handed will resume at 3 p.m. tomorrow rather than 2 p.m. We're not sure why, but we're guessing it's because there are still 50 players remaining in Event 50: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em, and $1,000 Ladies No-Limit Hold'em Championship is returning for Day 2 with over 100 players. There is also a $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em event tomorrow at noon that should attract a lot of players.

Regardless of the reason, players have mixed opinions about the restart being pushed back.

"I just want to make Day 2," Jonathan Aguiar told us. "So I can come back at three and be able to sleep in."

At an adjacent table, Raymond Davis, Matt Stout, and Vanessa Selbst are talking about the effects it has on double-dipping.

"You can't late-reg now," Davis announced. "It's too close."

"You can buy in at noon and try to run it up though," Selbst added.
