The first of three opening flights of Event #71: $1,000 One More For One Drop NLHE, at the 2022 WSOP at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas drew in 841 entries, with around a third of that number surviving. With unlimited re-entries allowed not only through the starting flights but also during the first two levels on Day 2, the field is expected to rise dramatically. In 2021, there was a total of 3,797 entries with the winner Scott Ball taking home $396,445 and his second gold WSOP bracelet.

After 10 levels today, Renmei Liu finished with the chip lead; he bagged 445,500 chips. Also towards the top of the Day 1a chip counts were by Justin Lee (357,000), Rommel Berges (350,000) and Justin Fawcett (348,500). Germany's Niko Koop is not so far (329,000) while Mateusz Moolhuizen (257,000) and Matt Berkey (101,500) also bagged for day 2.

For the players eliminated today, such as Joe Cada, Victor Ramdin, Michael Mizrachi, Samuel Bifarella and Paulina Loeliger, they can still try to qualify on another flight.

While those first qualifiers can take a break for a couple of days, there are plenty of those who will be in action in the subsequent flights. Day 1b starts at 12 p.m. local time on July 8 and PokerNews will once again provide live updates from start to finish.

Rodgers Eliminates Opponent

lewispowell2000 • Level 10: Blinds 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante

Joining the action on the river the board read {10-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}

Garith Rodgers was in the hijack and checked to the cutoff who moved all in for 41,800. Rodgers pondered before making the call. The cutoff showed {a-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for a pair of nines while Rodgers showed {10-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} for top set to send his opponent to the rails.

Shindyalov Takes The Gamble

veunstyle72 • Level 10: Blinds 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante

Four players were stood up around a table, action was caught with a board and a lot of cards face up.

Dmitry Shindyalov explained to PokerNews that he opened in early position, called by Naito Rintaro on the button. Then, Jason Lee made all in for 25,100 and Shindyalov just called. But when action was back on Rintaro, he announced all in, and was easily covering Shindyalov.

Shindyalov made the call or his last 30,000 and three players were all in before the flop.

Jason Lee: {a-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}
Dmitry Shindyalov: {q-Spades}{j-Spades}
Naito Rintaro: {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}

The board ran {a-Hearts}{6-Spades}{a-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} and Lee made a full house. He tripled up while Rintaro took the side pot, by eliminating Shindyalov.

"I tried to get a big stack for Day 2. And I lose, and I can still try tomorrow", said Shindyalov.

Eric Mavis: {a-Hearts}{3-Hearts}

The board ran out {q-Spades}{6-Hearts}{6-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} confirming the elimination of the small blind at the hands of Mavis.
