Parker Talbot Among Biggest Stacks at Close of Day 1b

Level 6 : 300/600, 100 ante

Day 1b of the World Series of Poker Europe Main Event drew to a close just before midnight on Sunday at King's Casino, and 888poker Ambassador Parker Talbot bagged one of the biggest stacks when the dust settled. Talbot finished with 179,500, to place within the unofficial top five out of the 190 or so who bagged.

Best known for his online streaming success, "tonkaaaa" has recently expanded more into the live arena after hooking up with 888poker, racking up over $100,000 in cashes this year. He'll have more than 200 big blinds when play resumes on Monday.

He'll be joined by fellow 888poker Ambassadors Vivian Saliba (100,300), Sofia Lovgren (40,800) and Natalie Hof (8,600), all of whom also played Day 1b.

Henry Tran appeared to be the chip leader with 224,700 when play closed. Tran racked up the hefty count despite playing at a tough table that included Mustapha Kanit and Martin Jacobson for much of the night, although the latter showed up quite late. Kanit himself bagged 177,100 while the 2014 WSOP Main Event champ finished with 33,400.

Tran has had plenty of tournament success over the past decade-plus, building up $1.8 million in tournament cashes. However, the closest he has come to wearing WSOP gold is a fourth-place event in $1,000 event back in 2012. He's off to a good start if this is going to be his big breakthrough.

Overall, Day 1b drew about 265 entries, which pushes the two-flight total to 490. There's still time for more entries as well, since registration remains open until the start of Day 2 and the new reentry format means anyone who has already played can still put in one last entry. They'll have plenty of chips too, since the 50,000 starting stack will hold plenty of play with the 90-minute levels and 400/800/100 blinds and antes to start Day 2.

Some of those players who will need to take advantage of the format, due to a lack of success on Day 1b, included Vojtech Ruzicka, Koray Aldemir, Felipe Ramos, Martin Kabrhel and Chris "Jesus" Ferguson.

Ferguson, of course, is the runaway favorite for WSOP Player of the Year honors after a strong showing here in Europe cemented his status atop the leaderboard.

Day 2 coverage begins at noon on Monday here on PokerNews so come back to find out just how big this field gets when everyone combines and all of the final entries get tallied.

No Justice

Level 6 : 300/600, 100 ante

Sam Trickett, pictured in an earlier event.

Sam Trickett bet 6,000 on a {2-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{7-Clubs} flop and a player in the cutoff called. Small blind Marius Gierse put in 16,000. Trickett quickly called, as did the third player. The turn was a {k-Diamonds} and Gierse jammed for 28,500. Trickett thought about a minute and then jammed for a bit more.

"Whew," he said after fading a snap-call from the third player.

"I have a gutshot," that player said with a laugh.

"Gamble," Trickett said. "I'm gambling."

"I know you are. But he has a set."

The player on the button mucked {6-}{4-} and Trickett showed his {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. Gierse had {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}. The river: {q-Spades}.

"F***," Trickett exclaimed. "No justice."

Hallaert on the Comeback Trail

Level 6 : 300/600, 100 ante

Kenny Hallaert played the role of big stack for most of his last two World Series of Poker runs, but he's showing he can spin up a short stack here in Europe. He just had 12,000 a bit ago but has worked up to almost 30,000.

His most recent win saw him bet 2,000 on the button against Oliver Weis, in the small blind on a board of {3-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{9-Clubs}. Weis called and checked the {10-Diamonds}. Hallaert bet again with a T5,000 chip, verbalizing an amount we didn't hear, and Weis thought briefly and folded.
