Darren Elias got the far shortest stack of fewer than four blinds in from the hijack and Ronny Kaiser reshoved with the second-shortest stack on the button. Sean Winter and Elio Fox both let go in the blinds and the following battle of the short stacks ensued.
The flop left Elias in desperate shape and he was drawing dead on the turn, making the river a formality. With that, Day 1 comes to an end with nine players remaining. The chip counts and a recap of today's action are to follow.
