The tournament attracted a field of 1,359 players, almost doubling that of last year, generating a prize pool of $3,628,530. Plenty of notables took to the felt when play began at 3 p.m. PDT. Phil Hellmuth (349,000), Michael Rocco (390,000), and Alex Foxen (68,000) will all return to play tomorrow. A full list of chip counts and seating assignments will be released shortly.

Not everyone was fortunate enough to make the cut for Day 2. David Peters, Daniel Negreanu, Maria Ho, Justin Bonomo, and Tony Dunst all entered the field but busted before the end of the day.

The 226 players who will contend for the coveted WSOP bracelet return on Friday, July 1st at 2 p.m. PDT in the Bally’s silver section. The schedule calls for 60-minute levels and they will play until only five players remain.

The PokerNews team will be back tomorrow to bring you live updates as they make their way towards the final table.

End of Day 1

Kirk.brown • Level 15: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

Play has ended for Day 1 of Event #65 $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Freezeout and the remaining 227 players have bagged to return tomorrow. A full recap of the day's action will be posted soon.

Hellmuth Impressed By Opponents Fold

ChrisBean • Level 15: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

There was 60,000 in the middle on the turn board of {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}. The big blind bet 100,000 and was met with a shove of 232,000 from Phil Hellmuth in early position.

The big blind was deep into the tank and Hellmuth said on three occasions one of his famous lines "I'll take this one, you take the next one."

The big blind looked uncomfortable in his seat and eventually found a fold revealing he had {a-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for two pair. Hellmuth praised the big blind for the strong lay down and revealed he had {a-Spades}{9-Spades} for a stronger two pair.

Munroe Gets There for All the Chips

Kirk.brown • Level 14: 3,000-5,000, 5,000 ante

After the flop was checked through, a three-way turn board of {8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} saw the small blind check, the early position player bet 18,000, and Gavin Munroe in late position call. The small blind then check-raised to 43,000, which forced the early position player to fold but saw a call from Munroe.

The river was the {q-Hearts} which double- paired the board, to which the small blind check to Munroe. After a few seconds, Munroe raised to all but one chip that he kept back for safe keeping. This sent his opponent deep into the tank for a good while, clearly distressed about his decision.

Eventually he made the call and after Muroe confirmed that it was technically a riase he threw in his last chip to call and tabled {q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} for top full house. His opponent threw in his cards face down but since it was technically an all-in he had to show his hand so the dealer tabled {j-Spades}{8-Spades} for the smaller boat.

Munroe raked in the large pot as his opponent was eliminated from the tournament.
