Day 1c of Event #60: $888 Crazy Eights No-Limit Hold'em 8-Handed is in the books. This flight had a total of 2,072 entries. Add that to yesterday’s flights, and the total entries are currently at 5,242 and counting. A min-cash today was worth $1,333, and 311 players finished in the money. The flight wrapped up with 93 players, who will return for Day 2 on Monday together with the 143 survivors from Flights 1a and 1b and the remaining players of Flight 1d.

The chip leader of this flight is Danny Alvarez with 497,000 chips. Quite a few of those chips were collected when he knocked out Pierre Neuville with a higher flush in one of the last levels of the day. He does have other big stacks behind him, including Joao Vieira (410,000), Bill Germanis (407,000), Catherine Dever (391,000), JeWook Oh (390,000), and Vanessa Kade (424,000).

Unfortunately, not everyone could make it through this flight. Notables like 888 poker ambassadors Chris Moorman, Natalie Hof, Dominik Nitsche, and Bruno Politano along with others like Joe Cada, Barry Shulman, Cliff Josephy, Men Nguyen, Carlos Mortensen, Dylan Linde, Sorel Mizzi, David Pham, and Jeremy Ausmus were all eliminated.

Currently, the top five stacks are Seville Hale (713,000), Jamie Rosen (589,000), Marius Pertea (514,000), Alvarez (497,000), and Jason Wheeler (491,000).

All players that advance through these four flights will come together on Monday and play Day 2 beginning at 2 p.m. in the Miranda Room. Make sure to keep your eyes on PokerNews to see who else makes it to Day 2.

Day Has Ended

poolshir • Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

Play has ended for today. A recap and end-of-day chip counts will follow shortly.

Loni Harwood Eliminates a Player

poolshir • Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

The player in the under-the-gun position raised to 16,000, and the next player to act shoved all in. Action folded to Loni Harwood on the button. She took some time to think and decided to go all in, too, with a bigger stack. Everyone else folded, so they were heads-up.

At-risk player: {A-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Loni Harwood: {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}

The board ran out {9-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} to give Harwood a flush and eliminate the other player.

Pierre Neuville Eliminated

Pierre Neuville
Pierre Neuville

The board read {8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{7-Diamonds}, and Pierre Neuville had bet just over 70,000. Danny Alvarez shoved all in, and Neuville called.

Alavarez had {Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} for a flush. Neuville looked a bit shocked and showed his inferior {3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and was eliminated. Alvarez cheered loudly and high-fived a friend of his.
