A total of 2,432 players entered or re-entered before late registration closed for the day. After a solid eleven 60-minute levels of play, 486 seniors bagged and tagged at the end of the day and will return and join their Day 1b counterparts when they combine for Day 2 on October 29, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local (PST) time.

The day’s action played fast and friendly. Many notables were in attendance, with quite a few of them bagging up for Day 2. The Day 1a chip leader is George Bronstein (585,000) followed by Tim Killday (433,000). Hot on his heels is fan-favorite “Miami” John Cernuto (355,500) who will be looking to add a fourth WSOP gold bracelet to his collection. Eli Elezra (112,500) will continue chasing bracelet number five with an above-average stack. Also, still in the hunt and headed into Day 2 near the top of the chip counts is Poker Hall of Famer JJ Lui (170,000).

Four Hands Remaining

• Nível 11: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

Tournament officials have just announced that four more hands will be played to end the night.

Brooks Drills One-Outer On River

• Nível 11: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

The crazy hands continue to end the night.

Trevor Brooks got the last of his chips in against Max Gabriel preflop and while the hand started as a simple flip, the ending was anything but.

Trevor Brooks: {8-Clubs}{8-Spades}
Max Gabriel: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}

The flop and turn came {5-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{9-Clubs} giving Gabriel the nut flush, but the river brought the one card in the deck that could save Brooks, the {6-Clubs} for the straight flush.

While Brooks may only have 30 big blinds, that's a lot more than if the one-outer had not come in for him.

Oakley Spikes Quads for the Win

• Nível 11: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

A random table erupted in the bronze section. This is the action as described by the table that witnessed it first-hand.

Keith Oakley held {4-}{4-} and his opponent, who held {7-}{7-}, went heads-up to a flop of {7-}{4-}{2-} and all of the chips ended up in the middle.

It was Oakley that was behind with his set of fours versus the set of seven.

The turn card was a blank {10-}, but the river card was the one remaining {4-}, and Oakley spiked the one-outer for quad fours to eliminate his opponent, while chipping up to 144,000.
