Day 1 of Event #20: $1,500 Seven-Card Stud is complete! It was quite an array of characters who came to the Amazon Room to play in the first stud event on the 2019 WSOP schedule. By night’s end, it was David Singer (69,000), Pawel Andrzejewski (57,500), Daniel Negreanu (56,900) and Julien Martini (56,400) whose names were atop the leaderboard going into Day 2.

Other notable players making it through to Day 2 included Jeff Lisandro (36,800), who finished second in this event last year, Dan Heimiller (44,000), and James Brundige (39,700), who had the chip lead for much of the day.
A total of 285 players registered for the event, and players coming back for Day 2 will return to the Rio for the restart at 2 p.m. Saturday. The remaining field of 103 will narrow down as players battle it out for the WSOP bracelet and first-place prize of $93,766.

Late registration lasted through Level 8 on Day 1, and Negreanu, Mike “The Grinder” Mizrachi, and Chris “Jesus” Ferguson were among the players that arrived late. Negreanu and Ferguson made it through, but it was a short night for Mizrachi, who busted out just a couple of hours after showing up.

Other big names that didn’t make it through Day 1 include WSOP bracelet winners Benny Glaser, Rod Pardey Sr., and David Bach.

The field was filled with WSOP bracelet winners on Day 1, and making through the remainder of this tournament will be no easy task. Ten more 60-minute levels are planned on Saturday for Day 2, with the top 43 players finishing in the money. The event is scheduled to play down to six players Sunday on Day 3. The final table will commence on Monday, June 10, and the $1,500 Seven Card Stud champion will be crowned!

Stay with the PokerNews live reporting team throughout this event and follow your favorite players as they battle for the bracelet.

Day 1 is Done!

GeoffFisk • Level 10: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Day 1 has played to it's completion; stay tuned for an end-of-day recap.

Three to a Straight Flush Scares off Ferguson's Opponent

GeoffFisk • Level 10: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Chris "Jesus" Ferguson has chipped up to 24,000 after taking down a small pot with some scary cards showing on his board.

Chris Ferguson: {x-}{x-}/{9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Opponent: {x-}{x-}/{5-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{7-Clubs}

The opponent came along to fifth street with Ferguson as the aggressor, but shut it down when the {10-Hearts} hit for Ferguson. The six-time bracelet winner registered late in Day 1, but is looking like a good shot to make it to Day 2.
