One of the last $10,000 buy-in events of the 2019 World Series of Poker, Event #72: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship, got started on Tuesday with Day 1. A decent field of 110 ponied up the brick, putting it right in line with last year's 114 entries with registration open until the start of Day 2.
Of that number, a little under half made it through to the next day's play. Andrew Brown is foremost among them, having min-raised his way from 60,000 to 337,000. That puts him a decent amount clear of second-placed Anthony Marsico, who finished with 283,000.
Brown already had one of the top stacks when he found a beautiful spot late in the day, holding kings against two short stacks who opted to get it in with eights and queens. The board ran out clean for Brown and he surged into a lead that he wouldn't give up.
Another player with heaps was Eli Elezra, who finished in third with 255,500. Elezra continues a fantastic series, having already scooped a WSOP bracelet. In fact, he registered late in this event due to a deep run in the $10,000 Stud Hi-Lo, where he finished 11th for $23,664.
James Chen, Robert Mizrachi, Josh Arieh, Shaun Deeb and Phil Hui also punched Day 2 tickets. In contrast, Anthony Zinno, Daniel Negreanu, Dan Zack and freshly minted bracelet winner David "ODB" Baker were some of the players running dry on chips.
Day 2 kicks off with 90-minute levels starting at 4,000/8,000 limits. Come back to PokerNews to see if any stragglers hop in at the buzzer and what happens thereafter.
