Civic Loses Flip for Stack

• Level 12: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Craig Carrillo clashed all in preflop with Donald Civic who was the short stack at the table and had found {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}. He was up against the {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} of Carillo.

The dealer put out a board of {4-Clubs}{3-Spades}{6-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{7-Spades}, meaning no help for big slick and Civic took his leave.

Labar Joins the Queue

• Level 12: 600-1,200, 200 ante

There are a number of players heading for the payout desk already and among that group is Brett Labar.

In his final hand, Labar opened for 2,500 on the button, then watched Andrew Lichtenberger get a count of Labar’s stack of 16,700 before making the call.

They saw a flop of {j-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{8-Spades}. Lichtenberger checked and when Labar bet 2,500, Lichtenberger check-raised him to 10,000. Labar moved all in and Lichtenberger quickly called showing {j-Clubs}{10-Hearts}. “You got me.” Labar said and showed his {j-Hearts}{3-Hearts}.

The {a-Hearts} turn and {6-Diamonds} river completed the board, and Labar was out.

Early Bust Out

• Level 12: 600-1,200, 200 ante

On the first hand of the day at Table 439, one of our chip leaders, Alan Clunie, opened to 3,600 from early position and Jake Schwartz made the call from the small blind. The big blind shoved all in, Clunie quickly got out of the way, and Schwartz snap-called with {a-}{q-} versus the {5-}{5-} of the player in the big blind who was at risk.

Schwartz didn't have to wait long to leap ahead as the flop came down {q-Spades}{2-Hearts}{7-}. The board ran out {9-Spades}, then {9-Diamonds}, and we've lost one early.

Day 2 will begin shortly with the 2,224 players who bought in on Day 1 being reduced to 186 after 11 levels of play yesterday. The money bubble burst last night with the returning players all now in the money and guaranteed at least $1,981.

The overnight chip leader is Miguel Proulx who returns with 120,500 closely followed by Andjelko Andrejevic with 117,800 and Dale Beaudoin with 117,100.

Mark Radoja who bagged 102,000 chips last night is in 5th place. Radoja is well placed today to make a run at his third WSOP bracelet.

Other notables still in the field are Cy Williams (100,400), Alan Clunie (91,700), Jimmy “Gobboboy” Fricke (86,100), Niall Farrell from the U.K. (86,000), Andrew “luckychewy” Lichtenberger (62,700), and heads-up online specialist Olivier Busquet (35,000).

Play begins at 1.p.m with Level 12 where the blinds are 600/1,200 with a 200 ante. There will be ten levels of play today, a 20-minute break after every two levels, and a one-hour dinner break after Level 17.

We are all set for another great day of poker here at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, home of the 2014 World Series of Poker. We hope you’ll stay with us throughout the day as the players battle towards the final table with their eyes firmly fixed on the first-place prize of $360,435 and a gold bracelet to hang off their wrist.
