Day one of Event #54: $2,500 Nine-Game Mix 6-Handed has concluded after 10 levels of play with some notable names among the chip leaders in one of the newest World Series events. A total of 319 entrants produced a prize pool of $709,775, with 48 spots paid and a first-place prize of $168,608.

Kao Saechao has the overnight lead with 240,000 chips, thanks in part to a big hand against Randy Ohel and Adam Friedman shortly before the final break of the night. However, several WSOP bracelet winners are not far behind.

Fresh off his victory in Event #51: $3,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold’em, Brian Rast sits second in chips chasing a sixth career bracelet. After taking his seat towards the end of late registration, Rast ran up his stack and finished with 212,100 chips.

Another multiple bracelet winner in the hunt is Eli Elezra, who was blinding down late in the final level after leaving to get some rest. Elezra takes 196,100 chips into Day two of this event, while also carrying 45 big blinds into Day 2 of Event #52: $1,000 Seniors Championship.

Other names to watch after the opening 10 levels are Kevin Gerhart (158,300), Scott Bohlman (157,500), Adam Owen (154,300), David Williams (153,100), Maria Ho (135,900), Josh Arieh (129,700) and Daniel Negreanu (62,000).

There are also notable names with work to do on Friday, as Michael Noori, David “ODB” Baker, John Monnette, and John Racener are among the short stacks. Others that failed to make it through the day include Phil Hellmuth, Frank Kassela, Christopher Vitch, Brandon Shack-Harris and Mike Watson, who was making his first appearance of the 2021 World Series.

Day two will begin at 2:00 p.m. local time, with 10 more levels to be played. Play will resume on Level 11 with 15-minute breaks scheduled after every two levels and a dinner break after Level 16.

Stay tuned to our PokerNews live blog as Day 2 unfolds.

Negreanu Doubles Through Gity

Nível 10
Daniel Negreanu
Daniel Negreanu

No-Limit Hold'em

Tom Gity raised to 3,800 from middle position, and Daniel Negreanu raised all-in for 39,800. Gity took a moment before making the call, putting Negreanu at risk.

Daniel Negreanu: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}
Tom Gity: {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}

Negreanu was ahead preflop, and the runout of {9-Hearts}{4-Spades}{4-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} was clean for the double up with just half an hour of play remaining.

Elezra May Have a Busy Friday

Nível 9
Eli Elezra

Eli Elezra has had a good day building a healthy stack of 161,000 as of this writing. If he can keep this going for another couple of hours, he'll be taking a nice bag of chips into Day 2 Friday afternoon.

One small problem though.

He's also got a 45 big blind bag awaiting him in Friday's Day 2 of the Seniors Event!

Play for that begins at 10:00 am local time, so with play in the nine-game event ending around 2:00 am, it could be a short night of sleep and a long day of double-dipping ahead for the hall of fame nominee.

Massive Cooler Puts Friedman on Fumes, Eliminates Ohel

Nível 8
Kao Saechao
Kao Saechao

Pot-Limit Omaha

The last level before re-entry closes can bring some crazy pots, and this was certainly the case at table 532.

Randy Ohel, Adam Friedman and Kao Saechao each got almost 70,000 in preflop, with Ohel at risk.

Randy Ohel: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{5-Spades}
Adam Friedman: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{10-Hearts}{2-Spades}
Kao Saechao: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{4-Hearts}

The board ran out {q-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{6-Hearts}, with Saechao making a runner-runner straight to eliminate Ohel and put Friedman on fumes.

Ohel had the ability to re-enter, but Friedman will have to run his stack up if he's to survive.

Huge Razz Pot for "Bakes"

Nível 4
David "Bakes" Baker
David "Bakes" Baker


David "Bakes" Baker's opponent's tried their best to bet the three-time bracelet winner out of a recent razz hand, but he wasn't having it.
On fourth street, Baker held {a-}{k-} vs his early position opponent's {5-}{9-} who bet, and his late position opponent's {5-}{10-}, who raised. Baker opted to call, only to face two more raises, which Baker again called.

After the four bets on fourth, Baker again called a bet and a call on fifth and sixth street with the players' boards reading:

David "Bakes" Baker: {x-}{x-}/{a-}{k-}{7-}{9-}
Early Position Opponent: {x-}{x-}/{5-}{9-}{q-}{2-}
Late Position Opponent: {x-}{x-}/{5-}{10-}{k-}{8-}

On seventh street, both opponents checked to Baker, who bet, and was quickly called by the early position opponent. The other player folded.

Baker showed {8-}{7-}{6-}{2-}{a-}, for the best hand to drag a sizeable pot.

Mario Ho three-bet to 1,800 preflop, and called a four-bet to 5,000 from Paul Holder. After the {q-Hearts}{5-}{3-Hearts} flop, Holder bet 5,000 and Ho raised all-in. Holder called and had Ho's top pair dominated.

Maria Ho: {k-}{q-}
Paul Holder: {a-}{a-}

The turn {6-} and river {7-} were no help, and Ho chose to re-enter early in level four.

New Nine-Game Mix Event Makes Its Debut

WSOP Bracelet
WSOP Bracelet

A brand-new event at the World Series of Poker begins today as Event #54 $2,500 Nine-Game Mix kicks off in the Amazon room.

Mixed gamers will navigate not just the standard H.O.R.S.E. rotation, but No-Limit Hold’em, Pot-Limit Omaha, and Limit 2-7 Triple Draw (the other games in a standard eight-game mix), plus the ninth game, No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw. Sorry Badugi, maybe if the WSOP expands to a 10-game mix next year.

The three-day event begins at 3:00 p.m. local time, with ten 60-minute levels played, and 15-minute breaks after every two levels, wrapping play up around 2:00 a.m.

Winners of earlier mixed game events at this year’s WSOP include Jesse Klein (Event #2 $25,000 H.O.R.S.E.), Jaswinder Lally (Event #7 $1,500 Dealer’s Choice), Vladimir Peck (Event #18 $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw), Dylan Linde (Event #21 $1,500 Mixed Omaha), Ryan Leng (Event #23 $1,500 Eight Game Mix), Anthony Zinno (Event #27 $1,500 H.O.R.S.E.), Jim Collopy (Event #32 $3,000 H.O.R.S.E.), Adam Friedman (Event #36 $10,000 Dealer’s Choice), and Kevin Gerhart (Event #40 $10,000 H.O.R.S.E.)

Some of those players will surely be making an appearance in this event, as the WSOP mixed game tournaments always guarantee a star-studded field of some of the best all-round poker players in the world.

Join us here at PokerNews for all the action from this and every World Series of Poker event from the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.
