All the players started in the money and the action was fast and furious nearly all day long. There were 186 sat at the tables when level 12 began and two hours later at the first break there were 107 left. That would drop to 67 at the second break and there would be just 33 remaining at the dinner break.

Kyle Cartwright, who has 5 WSOP Circuit rings, is the overnight chip leader bagging up 973,000.

Daniel Dizenzo, who was busting players for fun towards the end of the night, is hot on his heels in second place with 912,000.

Third place is Ylon Schwartz who carries 832,000 into Day 2. Schwartz is a chess master and finished 4th in the WSOP Main Event in 2008.

Canada's Miguel Proulx started the day as chip leader but he finished 56th. Andrew Lichtenberger was involved in a lot of pots early on but he would bust out in 46th place. Mark Radoja began the day in good shape hunting his third WSOP bracelet, but couldn’t get a whole lot going and fell in 29th place. The U.K.’s bracelet hope in the field Niall Farrell had a good run but he eventually fell just short in 23rd place.

Action resumes tomorrow when the players will play down to an unofficial final table of 10 before the official table of nine moves to the feature table where you can follow the action on the WSOP Live Stream.

Tom Koral Eliminated in 16th Place ($12,830)

• Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante
Tom Koral
Tom Koral

Tom Koral opened to 18,000 from under the gun and Robert Kuhn reraised all in from middle position. Koral made the call and was at risk. Koral flipped over {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds} and needed to improve against the {8-Spades}{8-Hearts} of Kuhn.

The flop was {k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} and Koral vaulted ahead. The {8-Diamonds} on the turn though sealed it for Kuhn as he turned the set. The inconsequential {10-Clubs} fell on the river and Koral is out.

Berlin Penalised

• Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante
Nachman Berlin
Nachman Berlin

There had been a raise and Blake Barousse moved all in. Nachman Berlin called the all in and exposed his hand {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}. The trouble was there was still action to come from the initial raiser, Berlin turned his cards back over and the floor was called.

The ruling was that Berlin must expose his hand but it was still live. The original raiser folded and Barousse showed {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}. The board changed nothing and they chopped it up.

The floor then ruled that Berlin must serve a one round penalty. Berlin couldn’t believe it and asked for another ruling. When the second floor came over Berlin explained that the penalty would kill him as he was so short compared to the blinds.

The floor revised the ruling to a three hand penalty as the spirit of the tournament is that players should knock each other out, not rules. Everybody seemed satisfied with that.
