Day 1a of Event #74: The Little One for One Drop - $1,000 +111 No-Limit Hold'em has ended. The remaining 117 players will return Friday at 2 p.m. in the Miranda room at the Rio and merge with the players from Day 1b and Day 1c. Day 2 play will go for 10.5 levels with 15-minute break after every two levels. Players will also enjoy a 60-minute dinner break at about 8:30 p.m.

Ken 'Teach' Aldridge of the United States ended Day 1a as the chip leader with 199,000, but as there are two more Day 1s so the could shift before Day 2. Close behind Aldridge are Lawrence Engerman of the United States with 183,400 and Mark Jun from the United States with 181,200.

Other notables returning to Day 2 include recent bracelet winner Tom Koral (22,200) Adam Owen (92,800), Joe Elpayaa (75,600), Ray Henson (58,500), and Brian Hastings (16,800).

The event attracted 687 entries with two more Day 1s to go that will add to the prize pool. Day 1b starts at 3 p.m. on Wednesday and is a $1,000 buy-in for 5,000 chips. Players can elect to give a $111 donation to One Drop and receive an extra 5,000 chips on top of their starting stack.

The turn was the {2-Spades} and the small blind checked. Schumacher moved all in covering the small blind who tanked. After a couple of minutes a clock was called and the small blind put the rest of her chips in. Schumacher tabled {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} and the small blind showed {4-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}.

Four More Hands Tonight

Level 10 : 500/1,000, 100 ante

We have hit ten minutes on the clock, and that means the floor staff has drawn for a number of hands. Tonight that is four. Once every table has played four hands, we will be done for the night.

Owen Holds to Double Up

Level 10 : 500/1,000, 100 ante

Adam Owen went heads up to a flop of {J-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}, and the big blind checked to Owen, who fired out 2,100. His opponent went for the check raise to 5,200, and Owen thought for about a minute before he moved all in.

His opponent went into the tank for a while, never looking too comfortable about the decision. He asked for a count, and it was 28,900 total. Eventually he called, and told Owen, "you're ahead," when he saw Owen's hand.

Owen: {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}
Opponent: {8-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

The {5-Clubs} on the turn was great for Owen, as an eight was no longer good for his opponent. The river gave him a sweat, but it was the {9-Spades}, securing the double up for him to 65,000.

Hustad Knocks out Legrand in a Cooler

Level 10 : 500/1,000, 100 ante

Osvaldo Legrand got it all in pre-flop for his remaining stack of roughly 32,000 against Greg Hustad who had him well covered.

Greg Hustad: {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}
Osvaldo Legrand: {a-}{a-}

The flop was {j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} looking good for Legrand who had just tripled up 20-minutes earlier. The turn was painful, however when the {k-Diamonds} hit the board. The river bricked off the {7-Spades} and unfortunately for Legrand, he wasn't able to hold when he needed to the most.
