After a grueling 14 hours of play, Day 1 of Event #33: $800 Eight-Handed NLHE Deepstack has come to an end with 159 players still remaining. Todd Ivens finished the day among the leaders, bagging a whopping stack of 2,030,000 from a starting stack of just 40,000.

Ivens has multiple World Series of Poker cashes to his name, including two final tables back in 2018. The Illinois native is still looking for that elusive WSOP gold bracelet and he's hoping to do that in the coming days. Ivens finished third in chips, behind Alex Miles who bagged 2,700,000, and Tony Nguyen who will return with 2,185,000 chips.

Miles emerged as the chip leader in the last few hands of the night, scoring a massive double-up. Miles was already sitting on a healthy stack of over 1 million chips when he found himself involved in a pot with the chip leader. Miles flopped a set of eights against his opponent's top pair. Miles also had to dodge a flush draw on the turn when the two players got all of their chips in the middle. A brick on the river would result in Miles bagging the Day 1 chip lead.

Some other notables moving on to Day 2 include Mukul Pahuja (1,605,000), Ian Steinman (1,320,000), Haven Werner (955,000), Matt Affleck (840,000), and Ryan Laplante (650,000).

A total of 2,778 entries were recorded, exceeding the numbers put up in this same event two years ago. Many familiar faces took advantage of the 12 levels of late registration but still fell by the wayside throughout the day. The money bubble finally burst just before the last break of the night when Victor Paredes won a flip with his pocket jacks against his opponent's ace-queen. Unfortunately for Paredes, he was unable to advance to Day 2.

Just 417 players made it to the money with a min-cash being worth $1,282. The bustouts were fast and furious once the bubble burst with players like Gal Yifrach, Jesse Sylvia, Joao Vieira, Koray Aldemir, and Joao Simao all hitting the payout desk on their way out.

Day 2 will get underway at 12 p.m. local time inside the Amazon Room where the remaining 159 players will look to reach the final table. Play will continue until just five players remain, and a bracelet winner will be decided on Day 3 of the tournament.

The PokerNews live reporting team will have all of the updates throughout the tournament so keep it locked here to see who will become a WSOP champion.

Three More Hands

ajlamers • Level 22: 10,000-25,000, 25,000 ante

The tournament clock has been paused and each table will deal three more hands before the players bag and tag for the night.

Bojang and Chen Double Up

ajlamers • Level 22: 10,000-25,000, 25,000 ante

There was a raise to 65,000 from the cutoff and Ismael Bojang pushed his last 165,000 into the middle from the big blind. His opponent snap-called and showed {9-Clubs}{7-Clubs}. Bojang was ahead with {a-Clubs}{4-Spades} and held on for a double up.

At the table next door, Pete Chen and Robert Kuhn were heads-up in a pot with the flop reading {j-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. Pete Chen bet 50,000 on the button and Kuhn check-raised all in. Chen quickly called off his stack of 180,000 and the cards were tabled.

Kuhn had {a-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} but it was no match for the {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} of Chen. The {k-Spades} on the turn sealed the deal for Chen who earned himself a double up as well.

Yosifov Vaults to the Lead

ajlamers • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

After a limp from under the gun, Nikolay Yosifov raised it up in early position. The action folded back to the limper who just called to see a flop of {a-Spades}{k-Spades}{9-Spades}. He then led out for 150,000 and Yosifov announced all in. His opponent thought for a moment and then called off his stack of around 450,000.

Opponent: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Nikolay Yosifov: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

It was a cooler spot that saw Yosifov flop a set of kings against his opponent's top two pair. The {4-Hearts} on the turn and the {j-Diamonds} on the river didn't change anything and Yosifov collected more chips.
