Event #10: $1,000 Tag Team No-Limit Hold'em drew 843 runners and 94 teams will return Tuesday at noon to continue their battle. All remaining teams are in the money as the top 127 teams will get paid, sharing pieces of the $758,700 prize pool. John Hulett captains the leading team that will start Day 2 with the biggest stack in the tournament room. Hulett, accompanied by Deepinder Singh bagged up 146,000 today.
Singh was the key player of this team. He had a tough table draw, with former November Niner Jesse Sylvia to his left. But he dealt with it the best possible way, seizing most of Sylvia's chips in one of the biggest pots we saw today. Four-ways to a queen-high flop with two spades, Singh bet out and Sylvia was his only caller. Singh then barreled on the entertaining turn card - a king of diamonds that brought a second flush draw on the board. Sylvia tank-called and the river bricked. Singh pulled the trigger and moved all-in. Sylvia couldn't find a way out of this hand as he had flopped a top pair along with a flush draw and improved to top two pair on the turn. But it wasn't enough for him as Singh showed a set of queens to scoop the giant pot and vault over 100,000 in chips.
There were other contenders for the overnight chip lead. During the last level, it looked to be Brian Yoon pacing the field. He knocked out Russell Thomas, who played in a team with his wife Kitty Kuo and Saya Ono, who was paired with Ryan McNeel. Yoon eventually sealed 130,400 in his bag, putting himself and his teammate Michael Gagliano in good shape for Day 2. The top five also includes Team Hughes, led by Ryan Hughes (125,400), Kiryl Radzivonau - Mikhail Semin (116,000) and Ben Yu - Jacob Wilson (115,600). Team Shulman, captained by two-time bracelet winner Barry Shulman, also reported a six-figure chip count (109,000).
Among notable teams coming back for Day 2 are lineups such as Charalampos Lappas - Georgios Zisimopoulos (71,600), son and dad Brian Pinkus - Michael Pinkus (71,600), Maria Ho - Fedor Holz - Rainer Kempe - Philipp Zukernik (42,100), Andy Bloch - Howard Lederer - Chris Ferguson (23,000), Nick Yunis - Nacho Barbero (19,900) and Thomas Miller - Matthew Wakeman (18,900).
Unfortunately, we won't see some of the unique poker combos anymore as many star-studded teams failed to make it through. Those include Matt Glantz - Michael Mizrachi - Robert Mizrachi - Todd Brunson, a dream team that lost its hopes at the end of the day, with Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi at helm. Jason Wheeler - Tim Reilly - Nicholas Palma are also out and so are Ari Engel - Nachman Berlin, Thomas Muehloecker - Ana Marquez, Steven van Zadelhoff - Kenny Hallaert - Kristen Bicknell - Benny Glaser, and Jason Mercier - Natasha Mercier - Felipe Ramos.
This tournament will also crown a new champion as Doug Polk and Ryan Fee busted in 127th place, right after the bubble burst. Polk and Fee were teamed with Blair Miller and Steven Peller this time.
The 94 remaining teams are guaranteed to earn at least $1,562. Play will resume at 12 p.m. and PokerNews will be once again on the ground to provide live reporting from your couch.

Ten levels for Day 1 have expired and the remaining players have sealed their bags. Full Chip Counts will be provided once PokerNews receives them.
After a raise, a three-bet to 5,600 and a call by Michael Spiegel in the big blind, initial raiser Eric Polerecky also called and the flop came . The action checked to the three-bettor and he made it 6,700 to go. Spiegel check-raised all in and Polerecky called for 18,300, forcing out the third player in the hand.
Both the turn and river bricked and Spiegel was left with dust.
The next hand, Polerecky raised to 2,200 from under the gun and Spiegel shoved for his last 9,800. Timothy Rhoda called in the big blind and Polerecky folded.
Rhoda showed and Spiegel stood no chance with on a board of . "Thank you," Polerecky said after the river gave Rhoda a flush, claiming in table chat he folded ace-queen without club.
|Timothy Rhoda - Melanie Banfield||79,900||79,900|
|Matthew Diesch - David Barnett - Eric Polerecky - Louis Diesch||50,000||50,000|
|Michael Spiegel - Bryan Rosen||Eliminado|
The clock has been stopped with 98 players remaining and five more hands will be played.
Michael Mizrachi busted before bagging and tagging and Michael Lech followed in 100th place just before him. Lech three-bet shoved from the small blind with king-jack and the initial raiser on the button called with king-eight to spike an eight in the window.
|Matt Glantz - Michael Mizrachi - Robert Mizrachi - Todd Brunson||Eliminado|
|Michael Lech - Darius Tamulevicius||Eliminado|
We picked up the action on the flop . Sam Cohen was in the big blind and checked to John Green, who fired 3,100. Cohen check-raised to 11,500 but Green decided to hang around.
The turn was the and the betting brought a fast process as they immediately ended up all-in. Cohen's hand improved to flush on the turn as she turned over . Bad news for her, the third spade was what Green was looking for, too. He had and while Cohen still had a chance to seize the pot, the miraculous straight flush didn't arrive. Cohen had to ship another 22,400 Green's way.
|Ryan Laplante - Sam Cohen||26,800||-4,200|
After a raise to 2,200, Ben Yu three-bet to 5,600 and Valentin Vornicu four-bet shoved for 22,000 with ace-king. The initial raiser folded and Yu snap-called with pocket aces. There was no help on the board at all, and an ace on the river even gave Yu a set and Vornicu the way to the cashier.
|Ben Yu - Jacob Wilson||116,000||39,000|
|Valentin Vornicu - Lexy Gavin||Eliminado|
When we saw Barry Shulman calling Brian Pinkus' 3,500 bet on the flop, we sticked around. There was yet another player involved in the pot, and he made a key factor in the story as he opted to check-raise for 10,000 total. Pinkus folded but Shulman had other plans. He matched the bet.
The turn brought the and the drama continued as Shulman's opponent declared all-in. Shulman snap-called, turning over for a flopped full house. His rival had and could only hope for the remaining seven in the deck. The river card was, however, the and Shulman scored a full double up worth 32,300. "I had a king, too, Barry," admitted Pinkus, who's teamed up with his dad Michael.
|Allyn Shulman - Jessica Horan - Barry Shulman||100,000||67,000|
|Brian Pinkus - Michael Pinkus||70,000||21,000|
