Day 1 of the Event #77: $3,000 Limit Hold'em 6-Handed has come to a conclusion with Ron Carmona bagging the chip lead over the remaining 57 players with 142,500.

Carmona recently finished at the 17th place of Event #66: $1,500 Limit Hold'em for $5,258. Among the top stacks are also Joshua Turner (139,000),Jason Bawadi (129,000) and two-time bracelet winner Mark Rodoja close behind with 117,000. Also heading into Day 2 with a decent stack are many notables players such as Daniel Zack (82,000), Christopher Vitch (80,500), Calvin Anderson (60,500), Kevin Song (56,000) and four-time WSOP champion Max Pescatori (44,000).

The defending champion Yaser Al-Keliddar took a seat on the first level of the day to defend his title and also found a bag tonight with 38,000.

With the Main Event taking a lot of the attention at the Rio, the final Limit Holdem game tournament was being played out in the Miranda Room where 193 players took to the felt to create a $521,100 prize pool that would see the final 29 players in-the-money while the $133,189 first prize would await whoever could climb to the top.

Due to the late scheduling of this event, numbers were expected to be down, but a nice field was set with many familiar faces all looking to make this tournament a great opportunity for a bracelet. WSOP winners Andre Akkari, Daniel Negreanu, Benny Glaser, David Bach, Phil Hui, James Obst, Matt Grapenthien, Michael Moore and 2017 Player of the Year Chris Ferguson all took a seat, but failed in their bid to survive into Day 2.

Anthony Zinno, Ismael Bojang, three-time bracelets winners Greg Mueller and John Monette and recent winner of the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed Joao Vieira were all part of the late arrival crew, and although they flirted with getting something going, Bojang, Monette, and Zinno all ended up on the rail as well. For Zinno, his end would come at the hands of the French player David Phima when his pocket threes found a set on the board while Zinno held ace-king.

Mueller, despite a bad start, managed to found a bag with 63,000 while Vieira is coming back tomorrow with 50,000.

Day 2 is set to be played at 2 pm (PDT) on Tuesday, July 9, with the PokerNews Live Reporting Team providing continuous live updates of all the action.

The flop brought {7-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and it was checked to Torry who bet. Fhima called and Zinno raised it. Only Torry and Fhima stayed in the pot.

The turn was the {3-Hearts} and Torry bet after a check from Zinno. Fhima called and Zinno called all-in for his last 600 chips.
