Day 1 of Event # 59: $2,500 Big Big Mix is at its end. Leading the way is Iraj Parvizi, who was able to over take Daniel Negreanu for the chip lead late in the evening. He and Negreanu swapped back and forth as the leader for the last few levels of the night, but eventually it was Parvizi who walked away as the end of day chip leader. Parvizi is looking to make his first World Series of Poker cash Saturday and with just a few place to go until the money bubble, he just might make it.

Negreanu also held the chip lead at multiple points on Day 1. Late into the last level Negreanu knocked out a player when his two pair turned into a full house and the player called his river shove. This put Negreanu close to the top, but Parvizi was the one who walked away as the chip leader.

Along with Negreanu are plenty of other big names who will return for Day 2 of the Big Bet Mix, including Jerry Wong (98,275), David “ODB” Baker (130,200), Jason Mercier (43,250), Calvin Anderson (94,250), Mike Matusow (40,875), Ryan Hughes (126,025), and Brandon Cantu (75,300). All of these players are looking to make it into the top 30, as that is where the money bubble will be popped.

While a slew of big names made it through day 1, there were also a slough of big names who didn’t survive. One such example is Phil Hellmuth who was eliminated within a half hour of his registration by Robert Mizrachi. Mizrachi followed Hellmuth out the door when he and David “ODB” Baker played a giant pot, giving Baker the chip lead for a little while midway through the day. Along with these two, some other who didn’t make it through the day were Dan Smith, Dario Sammartino, Layne Flack, Chance Kornuth, Ryan Riess, Frank Kassela and Dan Shak, just to name a few.

The 197 players who entered the event created a prizepool of $443,250 and a first place prize of $112,232. A mincash in this event is worth $3,750 while making an appearance at the six-handed final table will bring home at least $16,793.

The final 37 players will return at 2 p.m. PDT Saturday in the Brasilia Room where they will begin just seven places away from the money. Play will continue for 10 levels, and fireworks are sure to fly as soon as the money bubble is burst. PokerNews will be here to cover it all so make sure you don’t miss a single thing.

Mike Matusow Eliminates an Opponent

will_shill • Nível 10: 500-1,000, 250 ante

Big O

The player in the cutoff raised to 2,800. The button called and Mike Matusow announced pot from the small blind. Calvin Anderson folded the big blind and the cutoff moved in for less. The button tank-folded and the cards were turned over.

Cutoff: {j-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{7-Spades}
Matusow: {j-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{j-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

The board ran out {q-Spades}{6-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{5-Clubs} and Matusow eliminated a player for a late boost to his stack.

Negreanu Gets a Big Knockout to Close in on the Chip Lead

No-Limit Hold'em

Daniel Negreanu opened from the cutoff with a raise to 2,500. He was called by one player on the button and Ian O'Hara in the big blind.

The flop came {A-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} and O'Hara checked to Negreanu who put out a bet of 4,000. The player on the button called but O'Hara folded.

On the turn, Negreanu led out again, this time with a bet of 9,000. The button player called once more.

The river was the {4-Clubs} and Negreanu moved all in with a covering stack. This put the player in the button into the tank. He had close to 26,000 behind.

"Did I play the mixed tournament to bust in hold'em?" he asked himself. "Probably."

He then started to stare at Negreanu. "If I stare at you long enough, maybe you'll just give it away," he said. "I'm probably calling here, just give me a couple minutes to think about this guys."

While this was happening Negreanu just sat silently with a hand covering his mouth.

Eventually the player put in the chips to call. Negreanu immediately turned up {A-Spades}{4-Spades} for a flopped two pair that turned into a whole house.

The player tapped the table. "Alright, i'd like to go back to my old table with all the chips I just had," he said. He wished everyone luck and headed to the rail as Negreanu collected the chips and moved close to the chip leader spot at the end of the night.

Brandon Shack-Harris Chips Up After All In

will_shill • Nível 10: 500-1,000, 250 ante

The player on the button raised to 800. Brandon Cantu three-bet to 3,200 and Brandon Shack-Harris moved all in from the big blind for 4,875. Both the button and Cantu called and the flop came {10-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{4-Spades}.

The two players checked and Cantu check-called 3,500 on the {3-Diamonds} turn. The river was the {8-Diamonds} and both players checked.

Button: {k-Spades}{a-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{6-Spades}
Cantu: {3-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{2-Spades}{2-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Shack-Harris: {k-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{a-Clubs}

Cantu and the player on the button chopped the side, while the button and Shack-Harris chopped for his pot with Shack-Harris remaining short-stacked.

Wong's Stack Continues to Grow

MrCleverFox • Nível 10: 500-1,000, 250 ante

No-Limit Hold'em

One player moved all in before the flop and was called by Jerry Wong with a covering stack.

Wong: {A-Hearts}{9-Clubs}
Opponent: {A-Spades}{9-Diamonds}

It looked as if it would for sure be a chop but Wong flopped two clubs, turned one more, then rivered a flush to send his opponent to the rail.

"Fitting," the player said as headed to the rail. "Good luck everyone."

With that Wong pushed himself further up the chip counts towards the pole position.

No-Limit 5 Card Draw

Calvin Anderson had moved one opponent all in before the draw and the player called.

"I don't know what I'm supposed to do here," the player said, eventually throwing away two cards.

"I don't know what I'm supposed to do here," Anderson said as well. He revealed {K-Spades}{6-Hearts}{5-Spades}{4-Spades}{3-Spades} then started laughing. "I mean I guess I'm supposed to go for the flush because I have more outs."

Eventually he decided to pitch in his {6-Hearts}. His opponent showed {A-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}. They decided that Anderson would show his draw first. He revealed a {Q-Hearts} and that was it for the hand as Anderson didn't improve.

"He has the nuts over there anyways," Matusow said as the player showed {10-Hearts}{5-Clubs} for trips.

"I don't know if you're supposed to go with tens there," Anderson said. "I mean against a normal player. Against me it's fine but not against a normal person."

Anderson was forced to cut out 6,275 and send it over to his opponent.
