Photos from before the bubble (part 1)

Play is still hand for hand, but the clock has run down to zero and the players are now on break.  Here are some photos from the recent bubble play:

Play is now hand for hand

66 players remain, and the top 65 will be in the money and advance to day 2.  Play is now hand for hand until the next player is eliminated.

Quad Tens hit again on the feature table!

As the table said, it was "unnecessary quads" as the player in the 3-seat had another player at risk with pocket eights against his pocket tens.  This time a ten flopped and the last ten turned to make quad tens on the feature table for a second time today.  That elimination brings us to 71 players, just 6 players from the money.

99 players remain

The board reads 99 players remaining, which puts us a few minutes behind last night's time of making the double digits.  Again, the field will play down to the final 65 players before bagging up for the night.  Players will return on Tuesday to combine with Day 1A & 1C survivors.

Sherwin "The Fox" Agard doubles up with quads!

Sherwin "The Fox" Agard was all in preflop with [Th][Td] and was called by his opponent holding [As][Qc].  The [6d][6h][3d] flop was safe for Sherwin, and the [Ts] turn gave him an unbeatable full house.  The [Tc] hit the river to give Sherwin unncessary quads, and he will double up to over 70,000.

Players are now on dinner break

The 133 players remaining in Day 1B are now on their one hour dinner break.  Play will resume at approximately 8:05pm EST.  When the field returns, blinds will be 1,000/2,000 with a 300 ante.

Players are now on break

The 100/200 level is complete, and players are on their first break of the day.  Antes will begin after the break, and registration is open for another 4 levels.  Currently there are 401 entrants and 357 players remain.

Ryan Eriquezzo cracks aces and kings to triple up

At 75/150, Ryan Eriquezzo made it 350 before the button reraised to 800.  The small blind smooth called, as did Ryan.  The flop fell [Td][5h][4d] and the small blind bet out 2,500.  Ryan called, and the the button raised to 5,600.  The small blind moved all in, and Ryan called all in.  The button called both all ins, having them both covered.

Ryan [4s][4h]
Small blind [K
Button [Ah][Ac]

Ryan had flopped a set of fours to take the lead in the hand, and neither the [3h] turn or the [9d] river changed that.  Ryan's stack was counted down to 16,200, and he will triple up.  The small blind's few remaining chips found its way to the button's stack, and we will lose one player.

Registration is climbing!

Just 15 minutes into today's tournament and the field has already grown to 187 entrants. There is a small line at the cage to buyin, so expect this number to grow substantially over the 8 levels of re-entry.

Day 1B is Under Way

Cards are in the air for Day 1B of Event #1 $600 NLH.  This tournament features 20,000 in starting chips and has three starting flights.  Each day, the top 12% will make the money and advance to Day 2.  Yesterday, Day 1A got 540 entries and 65 players advanced.  A full structure is available here.
