Day 1 of Event #51: $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed is in the books after 21 levels of play. The event attracted a massive field of 997 poker enthusiasts but only 41 of them were able to find a bag for Day 2.

The Amazon room was packed with many notables and at the end of the day, it was Jun Obara who bagged the chip lead with an impressive stack of 3,010,000, the only stack above the 3 million mark.

Following behind Obara was Rostyslav Sabishchenko (2,020,000), Tuan Phan (2,000,000), John Gallaher (1,700,000), and Brian Rast (1,665,000).

The remaining 42 players have all locked up at least $10,803, but everyone will have their eyes on the top prize of $474,102 and the prestigious WSOP gold bracelet.

Ilani Set Up by Schwagler for KO

Level 21 : 10,000/25,000, 25,000 ante
Ran Ilani
Ran Ilani

Matthew Schwagler raised from the cutoff and then four-bet jammed for 745,000 after Ran Ilani three-bet to 95,000 from the small blind.

Ilani looked back down at his cards and quickly called off his 500,000 stack.

Ran Ilani: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}
Matthew Schwagler: {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}

Ilani liked what he saw after the cards were tabled until a nine appeared in the window on the {4-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{9-Hearts} flop.

The {4-Hearts} paired the board on the turn and Ilani needed a lady on the river to stay alive.

Unfortunately for him, the {k-Diamonds} completed the board and ended his tournament.

Set of Ladies for Gallaher

Level 21 : 10,000/25,000, 25,000 ante

John Gallaher was in the big blind and flat-called a raise from a player in middle position.

The flop of {q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{k-Spades} checked through and Gallaher led out with a bet of 75,000 on the {2-Diamonds} turn. His opponent called.

Gallaher fired out a bet of 155,000 on the {7-Clubs} river and his opponent called. Gallaher showed {q-Spades}{q-Hearts} for a set and his opponent claimed that he had a good two pair.

"It's a good thing I'm a nit," the opponent said.

No Chill for Reichenstein

Level 21 : 10,000/25,000, 25,000 ante

The action folded around to the small blind who limped in before Uri Reichenstein raised to 80,000 and the small blind came along.

On the {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{8-Hearts} flop, the small blind check called a bet of 45,000 from Reichenstein.

The tun was the {4-Hearts} and after the small blind checked, Reichenstein was in no mood to slow down as he fired out 100,000. The small blind thought it over for a few seconds and let his hand go.

"That wouldn't have ended well for you," Said Reichenstein.
