Event #43: $1,500 Limit Hold'em

Level 10 : 800/1,600, 0 ante

With only two limit hold'em tournaments on the 2014 World Series of Poker schedule, it wasn't a surprise to see a rather large turnout of 657 entrants for Event #43: $1,500 Limit Hold'em.

When play concluded at nearly 3 a.m. local time, it was Paul Mannoni who was sitting atop the leaderboard with 60,900 in chips. It's a tightly-packed bunch at the top with Paul Tedeschi (60,700), Matthew Davenport (58,700), Rob O'Shea (57,000), and Michael Lynn (55,400) all within striking distance of Mannoni.

Other notables that would be among the 118 that survived included Allyn Jeffrey Shulman (47,300), Jeff Shulman (32,000), Berry Johnston (41,900), Mike Laing (47,900), Todd Witteles (36,400), Jeff Lisandro (30,900), Dan Kelly (25,500), Mike Leah (12,700), Antonio Esfandiari (11,600), Brandon Shack-Harris (39,400), Terrence Chan (24,400), David Chiu (12,600), and Daniel Negreanu (12,600). Negreanu was moderately disappointed with his end-of-day performance, but promised on Twitter to run it up when play resumed on Day 2.

There were plenty of big names that would not make the cut, including Phil Ivey, who registered late and was gone within an hour. Others joining Ivey on the rail were Tom Schneider, Rep Porter, Marcel Luske, Barry Greenstein, Greg Mueller, Stephen Chidwick, Humberto Brenes, Jeff Gross, and Eric Buchman.

The surviving players will return at 2 p.m. PT on Saturday and will play 10 more levels. The event is paying 72 places, so the money bubble should be reached in the early evening. Tune in to PokerNews to find out who makes it deep and who falls short, and in the meantime, enjoy the fourth episode of Ivey Stories.

Chan Rivers a Monster

Level 10 : 800/1,600, 0 ante

We arrived at the table with Terrence Chan all in against the player to his immediate left, and the board reading {10-}{10-}{8-}{7-}{j-}. Chan's opponent tabled {8-}{8-} for a flopped full house, and then jumped out of his seat as Chan turned over {j-}{10-} for a better full house.
