Day One of Event #33: $2,500 Seven-Card Razz Ends; Bach Up Top

Level 8 : 500/1,000, 100 ante
David Bach
David Bach

There were 301 runners today for Event #33: $2,500 Seven-Card Razz and at the end of the day only 131 were left standing. Play started slow and steady, as most limit tournament are, and it wasn't until the middle of level three that there was a noticeable bustout. That first bustout was of bracelet winner Vincent Van Der Fluit. Van Der Fluit had been short for most of the day and had been heard talking about not being able to make a hand. Within 30 minutes, Van Der Fluit's chair was empty and the dealer was calling "Seat Open!"

Showing up late to make his title defense was Phil Hellmuth. He came in at the beginning of level five, but never got much going for himself. He finished out the day with only 2,800 chips. That was better than many other notables who were nowhere to be found at the end of the night. Some of the big names to not make it through day one were David "Bakes" Baker, Phil Ivey, Bill Chen, Abe Mosseri, Chad Brown, Cyndy Violette, Erik Seidel, Antonio Esfandiari, and John Juanda.

PokerNews' own Mickey "123md" Doft was in the field today. He got off to a shaky start but managed to make a comeback near the middle of the day. Toward the end of the night he got into several confrontations with David Bach and Justin Bonomo, and he ended up on the losing end. Doft was eliminated toward the very end of the night. Some of Doft's chips went to Bach who ended the day as the apparent chip leader.

Tomorrow the remaining 131 players will return at 2 p.m. local time to continue on their way to World Series of Poker glory by winning a bracelet. PokerNews.com will be around all day with plenty of updates so make sure to stay tuned.

Doft Doubles Back Through Bach, Then Busts

Level 8 : 500/1,000, 100 ante

We caught Doft all in showing {9-}{8-}{7-}{7-}{4-} against David Bach who was holding {10-}{8-}{5-}{2-}{3-}. Doft was drawing live against Bach's made ten low. On sixth street Bach drew another {2-} for a pair but Doft also drew a {9-} for a pair.

"Am I still drawing live?" Doft asked, to which Justin Bonomo informed him that he was.

Face down seventh street was dealt and Bach turned up a {K-}, keeping ten low as his best hand. Doft still needed to catch and he did when he turned up the {A-Clubs} making him a nine-eight low to best Bach.

Unfortunately, Doft was still on a short stack after the hand and he was eliminated a few hands later with the action unknown.

Bach and Doft Do Battle

Level 8 : 500/1,000, 100 ante
Mickey Doft
Mickey Doft

On third street Mickey Doft had a {8-} up while David Bach was holding a {4-} and both players were heading for fourth street.

On fourth street Doft caught a {4-} while Bach picked up a {9-}. Doft bet and Bach called.

Fifth street brought Doft a {10-} and Bach another {9-}. Once again Doft bet and Bach called.

On sixth Doft drew an {8-} while Bach drew a {k-}. Doft bet again and Bach called.

Seventh was dealt face down and Doft bet again. Bach took an extra second to think about it, but eventually called.

"You've probably got me beat if you called," Doft said showing his nine-eight-six low.

And Bach did have him beat, tabling {3-}{5-}{2-} for a nine-five low. Bach scooped the pot and Doft fell to just about starting stack.
