Day 1 of Event #37: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em has concluded. The event attracted 2,020 entries with 238 making it through to Day 2, which begins Tuesday at noon.

At the end of the day it was Chad Eveslage who had most chips, bagging up 197,300 from the starting stack of 5,000. Eveslage is a familiar face at the WSOP with 25 cashes and over $321,784 in total earnings. He already has three cashes this summer. He is followed closely by Louis Salter who bagged 192,000. Two-time WSOP bracelet winner Mark Seif rounds out the top three with 131,200.

When registration was finally closed, the 2,020 entries had created a prize pool of $1,818,000. A total of 303 players were guaranteed, a minimum payout of $1,502, but they were all looking to pick up the first prize of $292,880 along with a WSOP gold bracelet.

All players that advanced to Day 2 are guaranteed a payout of $1,678.

Many players were not fortunate enough to make it through, including multiple Main Event finalists Neil Blumenfield(2015), Joshua Beckley (2015), Cliff Josephy (2016), Griffin Benger (2016) and former champs Jonathan Duhamel (2010) and Joe Cada (2009).

Notables that moved on to Day 2 include defending champion Chase Bianchi (75,900), Jordan Young (47,300), Kristy Arnett (37,600), Martin Jacobson (33,800), Barry Greenstein (32,900), Mike Leah (17,300), and Joey Weissman (16,300).

Three More Hands

ElleSriracha • Level 10: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Play has been paused and the tournament director has announced that players will battle for three more hands, after which time play will end for the night.

A full recap will be posted in a short while.

Lori [Removed:349] Jams on Phil Hellmuth; Clock Gets Called

ElleSriracha • Level 10: 500-1,000, 100 ante
Phil Hellmuth
Phil Hellmuth

On a board reading {4-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{8-Hearts}, with about 20,000 in the pot already, Phil Hellmuth led out for 4,400 from the small blind.

Lori [Removed:349] was in the big blind and moved all in for 17,200, with Hellmuth having 5,900 behind. We got to the action while Hellmuth was in the tank, and Rob 'Veerob' Perelman was at the table and claimed that he had taken about four and a half minutes already and called the clock. Hellmuth disagreed. "I wish we could bet on that. You're f***ing wrong" he said.

The floorman came over and gave Hellmuth 30 seconds plus a 10-second countdown. "Can I take a picture of you?" asked Hellmuth. Perelman put two thumbs up as Hellmuth took his photo, and said he was going to complain to the floorman to get him a penalty the next time he called clock because he claimed he didn't actually take as long as he stated. The floorman counted down and Hellmuth allowed the time to run out, sending the pot to [Removed:349] after killing his hand.

Terry Schumacher Bursts the Bubble

SandraBarbour • Level 10: 500-1,000, 100 ante

During hand for hand play, we came to the {7-Spades}{k-Spades}{9-Diamonds} flop, with about 19,000 in the pot already. Terry Schumacher, the player in the hijack, and the player on the button were both all-in. Schumacher had a total of 23,000 and the player on the button had a total of 18,000.

Play was stopped until the floor came by and asked the players to table their cards and that the action continue.

The cards were tabled and Schumacher showed {a-Spades}{q-Spades} for the nut flush draw and the player on the button showed {9-Clubs}{9-Spades} for a set.

The dealer slowly burned and turned the {4-Spades} giving Schumacher the nut flush. The {2-Hearts} completed the board and Schumacher eliminated his opponent on the bubble.

Mike Leah Looking For the Double Bag... Again!

ElleSriracha • Level 9: 400-800, 100 ante

Mike Leah has been known to multi-table events and has even bagged twice in the same day in other events this series already.

Today, he is deep in the $5,000 6-max event and has been running up a stack in this event on the dinner break. He currently sits on 30,000, and given that the bubble is on the horizon, it's likely he will cash at the very least, if not find a way to bag yet another tournament.
