Event #66: POY Implications, Big Stacks, and a Crazy Last Hand on Day 1

Nível 10 : 500/1,000, 100 ante

The players have bagged and headed home from Day 1 of Event #66. Five of the top ten players in the WSOP Player of the Year race advanced to Day 2 with Ben Yu (5th in POY) bagging the biggest of the current POY contenders with 93,700.

John Racener, who leads the POY race, bagged 34,000. Chris Ferguson (2nd in POY, 25,100), John Monnette (7th in POY, 20,000), and Pablo Mariz (9th in POY, 18,000) all made it through as well. This event's 1,956 entries makes this one of the biggest point-getters left on the WSOP schedule before the Main Event.

While the POY race is definitely taking center stage, Tommy Tran (187,000) and Nikolas Zawadzki (171,200) bagged two of the biggest stacks of the evening. Not to be outdone, Sam Grafton made a splash on the final hand of the night. Jerry Yang, Peter Murphy, and Grafton were all in and another player was in the tank for almost the full amount of the clock. Grafton had jacks against ace-king and ace-seven and flopped a full house. Yang still had four-of-a-kind outs but missed and hit the rail with Murphy on the final hand of the evening. Grafton chipped up to 97,000 to end the day.

Alan Widmann, aka "Hotted89", bagged on Day 1 of his first-ever WSOP event. With only 308 players returning and 294 set to make the money, there is a decent chance Widmann will make the money in his first shot at WSOP glory.

Play resumes Thursday at noon. Stay up to date with all the WSOP action right here on PokerNews.

Elias Takes One From Zack

Nível 10 : 500/1,000, 100 ante
Darren Elias (as seen in previous event)
Darren Elias (as seen in previous event)

Darren Elias and Daniel Zack have been battling it out next to each other for the past couple of hours and have been in several confrontations. On this latest hand, Elias was on the button and raised to 2,200. Zack was in the small blind and three-bet to 6,600. Elias thought for a couple minutes and called.

The flop was {j-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and Zack checked. Elias fired out a bet of 6,000 and Zack called.

The turn was the {8-Clubs} and Zack checked again. Elias moved all in for his remaining 22,200 chips, sending Zack into the tank. After about just under two minutes another player at the table called for a clock. The tournament director came over and Zack had 40 seconds to decide. As the ten second count down closed in on zero, Zack elected to fold.

Elias then asked if someone had called a clock as even he appeared to be a bit surprised by the short amount of time. In the end, Elias added some valuable chips to his stack and these two will continue to battle on.

Chris "Jesus" Ferguson Hits the Devil Hand

Nível 9 : 400/800, 100 ante
Chris Ferguson
Chris Ferguson

A player in late position raised to 2,000. Chris Ferguson was in the big blind and moved all in for roughly 15,000. The player in late position moved all in, as well, for roughly 11,000.

Chris Ferguson: {6-Spades}{6-Hearts}
Opponent: {a-}{k-}

The flop was {a-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}, putting Ferguson well behind. The powers that be were having none of it, though, as the {6-Clubs} was produced on the turn. That gave Ferguson trips and left his opponent drawing dead as the dealer tabled the {9-Spades} on the river.

A player in early position raised to 1,000. The small blind three-bet to 3,000 and Phil Hellmuth called in the big blind. The player in early position folded.

The flop was {q-Spades}{j-Spades}{10-Hearts} and both players checked. The turn was the {2-Spades}. Hellmuth bet 4,600 and the small blind called.

The river was the {2-Clubs} and Hellmuth thought a moment after his opponent checked. He then reached back and fired out a bet of 11,400. The small blind quickly released his hand and the 14-time WSOP bracelet winner took down a nice-sized pot, increasing his already healthy stack.
