Day 1 Has Concluded and Martin Kabrhel Leads the Way

A total of 1,763 hopefuls filtered through the Amazon room today for Day 1 of Event #58: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em at the 2017 World Series of Poker inside the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino.

After ten 60-minute levels, just 269 players remain fighting for a $395,918 first place prize and the WSOP gold bracelet. Only the top 265 will leave with a piece of the $2,380,050 prize pool, meaning four players will not make the money coming back on Day 2.

The chip leader on Day 1 was Martin Kabrhel, building up an impressive stack of 235,000. Kabrhel hails from the Czech Republic and has 16 WSOP cashes to go along with two circuit rings, totaling $298,131. Kabrhel has already cashed three times this year at the WSOP and looks to add to that total with a big result in this event.

Following behind Kabrhel are Artur Rudziankov (173,400), Andreas Christoforou (152,000), Felipe Leme (145,200) and Ricardo Hernandez (136,900).

Notables also moving on to Day 2 include Kenny Hallaert, Chance Kornuth, Asi Moshe, Phil Laak and Andre Akkari

Some of the notables that took a shot on Day 1 and didn't make it were Craigh Varnell, James Woods, Kristen Bicknell, Allen Cunningham, Dominik Nitsche, Phil Hellmuth, and Paul Wasicka.

Day 2 will kick off at noon on Saturday, July 1. Ten and a half 60-minute levels are on the schedule for Day 2 and the money bubble will be looming right out of the gate as they are four away from getting paid. Blinds will be 600/1,200 with a 200 ante.

End of Play

[user340040] • Level 10: 500-1,000, 100 ante

A full recap of the day's play will follow.

Biggest Pot of the Day to Cap Off the Night

[user340040] • Level 10: 500-1,000, 100 ante

With the board reading {3-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{6-Spades} and what appeared to be about 65,000 in the pot, the player in the big blind checked. Martin Kabrhel was on the button and tanked for several minutes, counting his stack and maneuvering chips around. He asked the dealer to spread the pot and after reaching back for three stacks of yellow chips, he announced 59,900 as his bet. The player in the big blind then had a look of disbelief on his face and started counting out his stack as he had Kabrhel covered. The big blind then came out with over 100,000 and check-raised kabrhel all in for his remaining chips. Kabrhel snap-called with 91,700 total and the big blind tabled {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs} for a flush. Kabrhel flipped over {3-Diamonds}{3-Spades} for a full house and this vaulted him into the outright chip lead on the day.

30-Minutes Remaining on the Day

[user340040] • Level 10: 500-1,000, 100 ante

With 286 players remaining, the bubble is looming as the end of Day 1 approaches. If play reaches within two of the bubble then they will continue on until the money bubble has burst. If at the end of play they are more than two players away from the money bubble then players will bag for the night. Stay tuned.

Chidwick Survives

[user340040] • Level 10: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Stephen Chidwick was in the cutoff and moved all in for roughly 15,000. The small blind called.

Chidwick tabled {5-Hearts}{5-Spades} and his opponent showed {a-}{k-}.

The board ran out {j-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{4-Clubs} and Chidwick doubled up as his opponent had no club in his hand.

Cannon Cannons at Cada

[user340040] • Level 9: 400-800, 100 ante
Joe Cada (as seen in previous event)
Joe Cada (as seen in previous event)

Joe Cada has been steadily chipping up throughout the day. The two-time WSOP bracelet winner doesn't get bluffed often, but we just witnessed one occurrence of it.

A player under the gun raised to 1,800. Cada was in the small blind and called. Guy Cannon was in the big blind and announced a raise to 5,000. The original raiser called and Cada called.

The flop was {a-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and Cada checked. Cannon fired out a bet of 5,500. The under the gun player tanked for a minute or two and then folded. Cada took about ten seconds and then asked his opponent, "Will you show?" He didn't get a response. Again, "Will you show if I show?" and Cannon responded, "Show me first."

Cada obliged, flashing pocket jacks and folding. Cannon, a man of his word, showed the table pocket nines. A proud moment for sure for the Fountain Hills, Arizona resident.
