The 2014 World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific continued Friday afternoon with the Day 1b flight from Event #1 $1,100 No-Limit Hold’em Accumulator. The flight attracted 227 players – up from Day 1a’s 197 – but after eight one-hour levels of play just 33 remained with Dan Heimiller and his stack of 50,700 leading the way.

Heimiller late registered the event, and he took a slow-and-steady approach to the tournament before catching a heater in the last level of the night. In one hand, he opened for 1,100 from the button and then called when Australian Bruno Portaro three-bet to 3,400 from the big blind. Both players checked the {10-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{j-Spades} flop, and then Portaro check-called a bet of 4,000 on the {2-Clubs} turn. When the {K-Clubs} completed the board on the river, meaning a queen would make Broadway, Portaro led out for 5,500 and Heimiller shifted in his chair.

The WSOP bracelet winner began talking to himself, shrugged, and then dropped in a call. A deflated Portaro tabled the {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}, and Heimiller proudly rolled over the {a-Spades}{6-Clubs} for the win.

The second starting flight saw many returning players, many of who were destined to experience elimination déjà vu. Among those who tried and failed on both Day 1a and 1b were 13-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth; 2013 WSOP Main Event champ Ryan Riess; Australia’s own Jackie Glazier; reigning Aussie Millions champ Ami Barer; “Lady Maverick” Vanessa Rousso; and 2010 WSOP champ Jonathan Duhamel.

Likewise, the 2014 WSOP Player of Player race changed little as the three leaders — Daniel Negreanu, Brandon Shack-Harris, and George Danzer – all fell on Day 1b. However, while Negreanu and Shack-Harris were playing for the first time, Danzer had already made it through to Day 2 by bagging a stack of 24,625 on Day 1a. All three players were back in action on Day 1c though, so who knows how things will pan out.

While dozens fell, plenty of notables managed to bag on Day 1b including Piyush Gupta (47,500), David Bowen (45,325), Jeff Madsen (35,800), Giacomo Fundaro (23,650), Ismael Bojang (21,525), and Antonio Esfandiari (13,850).

The Day 1b survivors will join those from the other two starting flights on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. local time for Day 2 action. During that time the players will make the money as they look to play down to the final table of nine. Of course PokerNews will be providing updates the entire way, so be sure to check back then. In the meantime, be sure to follow our coverage from the Day 1c flight.

2010 WSOP Champ Falls in the Last Few Hands of the Night

Jonathan Duhamel
Jonathan Duhamel

Jonathan Duhamel shoved all in for his last 5,500 or so and cleared the field all the way around to Mitchell Farrell, who called from the big blind.

Duhamel: {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}
Farrell: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}

Farrell had woken up with the granddaddy of all hands, but Duhamel got a bit of luck when the flop came down {6-Spades}{10-Hearts}{7-Clubs}. Unfortunately for him, his lead was short lived as the dealer burned and turned the {A-Hearts}. The {4-Diamonds} river had no effect on the hand, and Farrell sent the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event champ home just shy of taking a stack to Day 2.

Heimiller Surging in Closing Minutes

[user153638] • Nível 8: 200-400, 50 ante

Level 8 is winding down, and Dan Heimiller is just warming up.

In a recent hand, Heimiller opened for 1,100 from the button and then called when Bruno Portaro three-bet to 3,400 from the big blind. Both players checked the {10-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{j-Spades} flop, and then Portaro check-called a bet of 4,000 on the {2-Clubs} turn. When the {K-Clubs} completed the board on the river, meaning a queen would make Broadway, Portaro led out for 5,500 and Heimiller shifted in his chair.

The WSOP bracelet winner began talking to himself, shrugged, and then dropped in a call. A deflated Portaro tabled the {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}, and Heimiller proudly rolled over the {a-Spades}{6-Clubs} for the win.

Give It To Gupta

[user38873] • Nível 8: 200-400, 50 ante

Jaime Kaplan and Piyush Gupta clashed before and they were at it again, with the most recent confrontation resulting in the elimination of Kaplan. He open shoved for 6,700 from the cutoff seat and Gupta called from the button. All other opponents folded.

Kaplan needed to improve with the {K-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}, but could not get there versus the {A-Hearts}{J-Spades} for Gupta.

A few minutes later, Gupta raised to 800 from the hijack and Giacomo Fundaro peeled from the big blind. The Italian check-called 1,200 on the {J-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts} flop before both opponents checked the {5-Hearts} on the turn. Fundaro then bet 4,200 on the {4-Clubs} river, and that pot-sized wager forced a fold from his opponent.

The Magic of the Toothpick Fails

[user38873] • Nível 8: 200-400, 50 ante

The action folded to Raj Moubayeo in the small blind and he open-shoved for more than 15 big blinds. One seat over, "Toothpick" Tony Kambouroglou gave it some thought before eventually calling with the {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}. He had two live cards against the {A-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} of his opponent.

It wasn't meant to be for Kambouroglou, though, as Moubayeo immediately flopped two pair and secured the double up by the turn of a {9-Spades}{A-Hearts}{2-Spades}{4-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} board.

Action Flop Sees Esfandiari Shove

[user153638] • Nível 8: 200-400, 50 ante

With around 4,400 in the pot and a flop of {8-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{q-Spades}, Mohsin Charania led out for 1750 and Shih-Sheng Chen called him. Antonio Esfandiari then three-bet all in, Charania folded, and Chen quickly called off for 10,775 total.

Esfandiari: {8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}
Chen: {6-Hearts}{6-Spades}

Esfandiari had flopped two pair, but it was no good as Chen had flopped a set. Meanwhile, Charania informed them that he had folded a double-gutted straight draw with {10-}{9-}. Esfandiari needed to find another eight to steal the pot, but it was not meant to be as the {10-Clubs} blanked on the turn followed by the {5-Diamonds} on the river.

Levy Levitates Into The Lead

[user38873] • Nível 8: 200-400, 50 ante

There was a raise to 900 from middle position, and Daniel Levy three-bet to 2,100. The initial raiser called to see the {10-Hearts}{6-}{2-Hearts} flop, and both players checked through to the {9-Clubs} turn. The original preflop raiser made it 1,700 to go, and Levy put him all in for about 5,000 total. The player called with {J-}{10-}, but that was no good against Levy's {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}.

A blank {Q-} completed the board on the river, and Levy pulled in the pot to move into the chip lead.
