Day 1 of Event #70: $3,000 Limit Hold'em 6-Handed is in the books. The event drew 221 runners, less than the 256 from last year. After ten hour-long levels of play, 69 remain.

Many top players entered the field, but it was the UK's Benny Glaser who bagged the chip lead. Glaser accumulated chips rapidly in the final levels of play and finished the night with a stack of 106,200. Glaser, who already owns three gold bracelets and finished 5th in Event #33: $50,000 Poker Players Championship this year for $260,578, has his eyes on his first bracelet in a limit hold'em event.

Other players pushing for the lead include Nicholas Seiken (101,900) who recently won Event #44: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship, and Anh Van Nguyen (96,700) who reached the final table of the $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship in 2016.

Several other big names who are also advancing to Day 2 are Ronnie Bardah (96,500), Rep Porter (90,700), Ben Yu (69,200),Barry Greenstein (51,700), Adam Owen (46,600), Koray Aldemir (33,400). Both Bryce Yockey (14,400), and Mike Matusow (11,900) also found a bag at the end of the day but as short stacks.

Some of those players unfortunate to bust out here on Day 1 included three Main Event Champions; Jonathan Duhamel, Joe McKeehen and Phil Hellmuth, as well as Todd Witteles, Sam Greenwood, Carol Fuchs, Jonathan Tamayo, Chris Vitch, Thomas Muehloecker and Andre Akkari.

The tournament director announced a complete prize pool of $663,000 at the end of the day with a top prize of $154,338 for the winner along with a prestigious bracelet. A total of 34 players will reach the money on Day 2, with a min-cash worth $4,449.

The event is scheduled to last two more days, with the Day 2 restarting at 2pm on Tuesday, July 10. Ten more levels will be played with 15-min breaks every 2 levels. Players will also enjoy a 60-min dinner break after 6th level (≈ 8:30 p.m.).

Glaser on the Rise

Level 10 : 1,200-2,400, 0 ante
Benny Glaser
Benny Glaser

A first player bet and Benny Glaser raised from the cutoff position. The small blind player three-bet and both players made the call.

The flop brought {6-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} and Glaser bet after the small blind checked. Both his opponents made the call. The turn was the {4-Spades} and Glaser bet once more after a check. Only the small blind player stayed in the hand.

The river fell a {6-Diamonds} and the small blind check-called a last bet from Glaser. The latter tabled {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} and it was enough to make his opponent muck his hand.
