Day 1a Ends

"Finish the hand you're on, you all are done for the night." The magic words were just uttered and bags were passed out as well as seat redraws. We didn't play a full 10 levels, as play was stopped with 278 players remaining.

The field was smaller than expected for the first day one flight of Event #13, the second $1,000 no-limit hold'em event of the 2010 World Series of Poker thus far. Just 1,922 players entered the day with the hopes of bagging chips at the end of the night and making it to Day 2.

Justin Bonomo, Katja Thater, Gavin Smith, Joe Sebok, JP Kelly, James Akenhead, Eli Elezra, Chris Ferguson, Tom McEvoy, Gavin Griffin, and Kara Scott were among the bracelet hopefuls that would not be back on Monday.

Players bagging and tagging their chips tonight include, Shaun Deeb, Phil Gordon, Phil "USCPhildo" Collins, Paul Wasicka, Vitaly Lunkin, Bill Chen, and "Miami" John Cernuto. It appears that Andy Black is our overnight chip leader with 92,000.

Tomorrow at noon local time, another round of hopefuls will make their way into the Pavilion Room here at the Rio with the same dream as the 1,922 that entered today. The remaining players from tomorrow night will meet the remaining players from tonight on Monday at 2:30 local time.

Be sure to follow along at PokerNews for every flop, turn, and river as we bring you all the action live from the tournament floor.

Tournament Stopped


The tournament has been stopped for the night since we've reached 15% of the field. Players are currently counting and bagging their chips and will receive a new seating assignment for their return on Monday.

Back from the Break


The players are back in their seats and action is underway. The tournament staff has announced that they will stop the tournament when only 15% of the field remains or after 10 levels, whatever may come first.

Kellstrom vs Lunkin


Dana Kellstrom raised preflop to 1,600 and was called by Vitaly Lunkin. The flop came {9-}{J-}{4-} and Kellstrom continuation bet 1,500. Lunkin, who won a bracelet in the $40,000 No-Limit Hold'em Event last year, made the call.

The turn was a {4-} and Kellstrom decided to slow down by checking. Lunkin took the initiative and bet 1,600. Kellstrom made the call and bet 3,000 when a {K-} hit the river.

Lunkin mucked and the win put Kellstrom up to 26,000. After the hand, Kellstrom said that he had {Q-}{10-} and rivered a straight.

Chidwick Chips Up

Victor Ramdin raised to 1,050 on the button and found a caller in Steven Chidwick from the big blind.

The flop came down {10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} and both players checked.

The {2-Hearts} fell on the turn and Chidwick checked. Ramdin bet 1,500 and Chidwick raised it to 3,800. Ramdin folded and is sitting on 7,500, while Chidwick has 10,500.
