Olivier Busquet finished Day 1B as one of the big stacks.
Olivier Busquet finished Day 1B as one of the big stacks.

Day 1B of Event #47 $1,000 No Limit Hold'em has come to an end. Play was halted at the same spot as Day 1A (45 minutes into Level 9) and the surviving players from both days, approximately 465, will return tomorrow for Day 2. Today saw 1,369 entrants, which combined with the 1,759 players from Day 1A, to create a total field of 3,128. Of that, 324 players will make the money and compete for their share of a $2,815,200 prizepool.

A number of big names started the day with the intention of winning a WSOP gold bracelet. Among those eliminated were Phil Ivey, Jonathan Little, Jennifer Tilly, Joe Sebok, Jason Mercier, Beth Shak and Humberto Brenes. On the other hand, Mike Beasley, Mickey Appleman, Faraz Jaka, David Levi, Matt Hawrilenko and Lyle Berman managed to survive the day. They will join the likes of Antonio Esfandiari, Matt Glantz, Lars Bonding, André Akkari, and Scott Montgomery, all of whom survived Day 1A, for the start of Day 2 tomorrow as they make their way toward the money.

Who will continue to find success in Day 2 and position themselves for a shot at the $485,791 first place prize? Will it be Day 1A chip leader, Chernykh Moscow, who finished with 75,150; Olivier Busquet, who ended Day 2 with 60,500; or Chris Moneymaker, the 2003 Main Event Champ? Join us tomorrow at 2:30 PM local time as PokerNews brings you all the hands, chip counts, and action from Day 2 of Event #47.

One More Hand

[user153638]

The tournament staff just announced that the players will play one more hand and then be done for the night. They will be given new seating assignments for their return tomorrow, at which point they will combine with the remnants of Day 1A.

Action Slowing

[user153638]

Action seems to be slowing as the night gets closer to the cutoff mark. It seems a lot of players are content to sit tight and make it through to Day 2.

Double Up for Sklansky

[user49729]

David Sklansky open shoved the pot for about 3,450 chips, and the player on the button re-shoved for about 6,000 chips. The action was folded around, let's see the hands.

Showdown
Sklansky: {k-Spades}{j-Clubs}
Opponent: {a-Clubs}{10-Spades}

The {k-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} board gave Sklansky a full double up, is now up to 8,000 chips.

Busquet Doesn't Quit

[user153638]

Olivier Busquet raised preflop to around 1,500 only to have an opponent move all in for 8,475. Busquet, who has a large chip stack, thought about it for a few moments before making the call.

Busquet turned over {A-Spades}{10-Diamonds} and was in big trouble against the {A-Clubs}{J-Hearts} of his opponent. That all changed when the flop came {10-Spades}{6-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}, putting Busquet firmly in the lead. The {10-Hearts} on the turn sealed the deal and the {2-Diamonds} was put out as a formality. Busquet eliminated his opponent and added an extra 9,000 to his stack.
