Day 1c of Event #11: $365 PLO GIANT Pot-Limit Omaha is in the books with 23 of 492 entries moving on to Day 2. After 21 20-minute levels of play, Tim Andrew sits atop the counts after building a stack of 1,375,000.

A prize pool worth $147,600 was collected on Day 1c and the top 74 places were to be paid a prize. The day ended with 23 left, however, so the remaining prize pool will be added into the field for Day 2.

Joining Andrew at the top of the counts were Yoni Basin (1,130,000), Russell Sartin (1,025,000), Layne Flack, (825,000), Steve Gagliano (795,000), Sandeep Pulusani (670,000) and Joon Park (495,000).

The bubble popped in Level 16 before any hands of hand-for-hand play could be dealt. Just as the tournament staff told the dealers to pause, Tim Andrew flopped a set of kings and got his opponent to put his stack in the middle after flopping top two-pair. Andrew's opponent was the only player to bust at the time leaving the remaining field in the money.

Players to leave with some consolation on the day were Thomas Taylor (31st - $861), Ylon Schwartz (37th - $750), Kevin MacPhee (45th - $750), Mikhail Semin (55th - $605), Chris Back (57th - $605), Danny Wong (64th - $560), and Dan Zack (65th - $560).

Notables not able to find any traction on Day 1c included Scott Clements, Connor Drinan, David "ODB" Baker, Adam Owen, Phil Laak, Allen Kessler, and 2017 WSOP Player of the Year, Chris Ferguson.

Here's how the rest of the event will play out:

Day 1dJune 247 p.m.
Day 1eJuly 17 p.m.
Day 2July 22 p.m.
Day 3July 32 p.m.

Flack Fires the Flop

AnTh0nyWTF • Level 20: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante

A sizeable four-way pot that included Russell Sartin and Layne Flack had a mountain of chips in the middle. The action was on the flop of a {q-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{a-Spades} board and after two checks, Sartin bet 125,000.

Flack moved all in for about 500,000 and that scared away all of his tablemates.

Miller Triples; Pulusani Busts Schwartz

AnTh0nyWTF • Level 19: 8,000-16,000, 0 ante

Jeff Miller opened to 16,000 only to see Ylon Schwartz three-bet to 80,000 in the small blind and Sandeep Pulusani flat in the big. Miller made the call and a {5-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} flop was dealt.

Schwartz bet the pot, Pulusani moved all in for slightly more, and Miller called off having just 6,000 behind. Schwartz actually had a bit less than Pulusani, and made the call.

Sandeep Pulusani: {j-Spades}{8-Clubs}{10-Spades}{q-Hearts}
Jeff Miller: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{5-Spades}
Ylon Schwartz: {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{q-Spades}{2-Clubs}

The board ran out {8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} and Miller scooped the main pot while Pulusani captured the big side pot. Schwartz was covered by just 15,000 and was eliminated.
