We've discovered a table pairing that is symbolic of the old poker generation versus the new, younger generation. Over at Table 13, Faraz Jaka is sitting directly to the right of WSOP veteran Mickey Appleman. Both players are sitting with healthy stacks, so it'll be interesting to see if they butt heads.
Christian Harder raised to 750 and Carter Gill called from the hijack. The cutoff then moved all in for 1,050 and both players called.
Both Harder and Gill checked the flop and turn. We didn't catch the river card but Harder checked, Gill bet and Harder folded, showing . Gill showed which was good enough to beat the cutoff's .
Harder was down to 13,000 after the hand while Gill jumped up to 21,500.
With a board reading , Teddy "Iceman" Monroe bet 1,000. His opponent in Seat 2 raised all in and Monroe mucked, leaving himself with just 2,000. It seems the Iceman will need his cards to warm up if he is going to survive until Day 2.
The tournament staff have announced that the remainder of play will be played nine handed.

Teddy "The Iceman" Monroe is seated in the corner of the room, which just so happens to be under an air conditioning vent. He recently complained to our field reporter, "Man, I'm the Iceman and even I'm freezing."
An early position player raised to 700 only to have Eric Baldwin reraise to 1,800 from the button. The blinds folded and the early position player wasted little time in mucking his hand. Baldwin is sitting with a healthy stack around 22,000.
