Day 1b of Event #6: $365 GIANT No-Limit Hold'em attracted 969 entrants who created a $117,052 prize pool. 146 players secured a min-cash of $557. Once the bubble burst, the remaining day brought many casualties to reduce the surviving field to just 53 players.

Jon Turner bagged the chip lead with 2,265,000 after making a crazy comeback. He went from less than a blind to ending the day as massive chip leader.

"I was all in blind at some point, I had less than a blind left, I had 1,700,'' Turner commented. When asked how he managed to rebuild to such a massive stack, he said: ''I won a few flips. Jacks vs ace-king twice.'' Aces vs king-queen'' he added.

Turner has 59 cashes and $1,235,652 in earnings at the WSOP. He will be looking to win his first WSOP bracelet. Another notable player who survived Day 1b was Matt Salsberg, who bagged 205,000.

Some of the players that gave it a shot, but didn't find a bag in today's flight are Felipe Mojave, Barry Greenstein and Chris Ferguson.

Among those who will be back for Day 2 on June 30 are Matas Cikinas (1,570,000), Joel Gossett (915,000), Ray Medlin (945,000) and Roy Shimada (825,000). Three more starting flights are scheduled for the GIANT, across the next three Fridays as Day 1c takes place on June 15 and Day 1d on June 22 while the last chance to make it through will be on Day 1e (June 29). Survivors from all five starting days will then return on Saturday, June 30 at 12 p.m. to continue playing for the WSOP bracelet.

Gossett Makes a Great Call

Level 21 : 12,000/24,000, 4,000 ante

We missed the preflop action, but on a {3-Spades}{3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop, Joel Gossett bet 85,000 in middle position. Stefan Vidojkovic, in the big blind, shoved for around 450,000. Gossett went deep into the tank and the clock was called. He ended up throwing in a chip signifying a call.

Joel Gossett: {a-Diamonds}{6-Spades}
Stefan Vidojkovic: {a-Spades}{10-Spades}

The turn came the {8-Clubs} and the river was the {6-Clubs} awarding Gosset the pot.
