It was an action-filled Day 1 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel as players packed both the Brasilia and Amazon rooms for Event #46: $800 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack (8-Handed). A total of 2,053 entries were logged on the starting day to create a $1,445,312 prize pool, and after a long 22 levels, a field of 120 players found a Day 2 birth.

Leading the charge after chips were put into bags was Alejandro Andión who collected a massive 2,400,000 to end the night. Andión was seen sitting with a decent stack in the latter stages of the tournament but catapulted to the top of the counts after flopping the nut straight with king-jack.

Day 1 of Event #46: $800 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack (8-Handed) kicks off today at 11 a.m. to give players yet another chance at quick bracelet in this two-day Deepstack extravaganza.

Players get a deep 40,000 stack for the $800 buy-in. There is one re-entry available should players bust and wish to give it one more try. The structure features 30-minute levels. There will be 20-minute breaks every four levels and a 75-minute break after Level 12. Late registration is available all the way through the dinner break. Players should be ready to strap in for a long day of play as 22 levels will be played today before the surviving players bag their stacks.

One of the unique features of this tournament as compared to other deepstack events is the 8-handed play.

In 2019, Santiago Soriano of Barcelona, Spain came out on top as the bracelet winner as he topped a massive field of 3,759 to win the grand prize of $371,203. He defeated Amir Lehavot heads-up to deny the Israeli player his second WSOP bracelet.

PokerNews will capture all the action as the play is sure to be hot and heavy all day long.
