Reinkemeier Leads Day 1a of the 2014 WSOP APAC Main Event

Nível 6 : 250/500, 50 ante

The premiere event of the 2014 World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific — the AU$10,000 Main Event — kicked off today at Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia. The first of two starting flights attracted 129 players, but after six 90-minute levels of play just 70 remained with Tobias Reinkemeier and his stack of 171,925 leading the way.

The German got some of his stack just before the dinner break when a preflop raising war resulted in Ashley Mason getting his stack of 11,000 all in holding the {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} only to run into the {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} of Reinkemeier. The board ran out clean, and Reinkemeier sent a tough competitor to the rail.

Others who made it through Day 1a with big stacks were Asa Smith (156,450), Ivan Zhou (153,200), Craig Blight (144,950), and Sean Winter (124,175).

Of course, not everyone was fortunate enough to make it through the Day 1a minefield. Jonathan Dimmig, who topped a field of 7,977 entries in this summer’s $1,500 Millionaire Maker to win $1.3 million, was one such player.

"It’s definitely changed my life for the future," Dimmig told PokerNews in an interview after that win. "I think it makes it a lot nicer for me options-wise to pick and choose what types of tournaments and cash games I want to play in. It’s not like I immediately jumped up into high stakes. I took some weeks off after the long grind of the summer, but I think I’ll be doing more traveling now and try to combine some vacations with good poker tournaments throughout the U.S. and maybe even the world eventually."

True to his word, Dimmig did do some traveling, specifically to Melbourne, Australia, for the 2014 WSOP Asia-Pacific. Unfortunately for him, his stay in the Main Event was short and not so sweet. His demise came in Level 2 (100/200) when he opened for 525 from middle position and 2012 WSOP Main Event runner-up Jesse Sylvia called from the button. The big blind came along, and the three players saw a flop of {k-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{q-Clubs}. The first player checked, Dimmig bet 700, and Sylvia raised to 2,050. The player in the big blind folded, Dimming shoved all in for 9,025, and Sylvia wasted little time in making the call.

Sylvia: {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Dimmig: {4-Hearts}{3-Hearts}

Sylvia had flopped top two pair while Dimmig opted to ride or die with his flush draw. The {J-Clubs} turn and {A-Clubs} river both blanked for Dimmig, and he was sent to the rail while Sylvia went on to bag up a healthy 123,050.

Others who would join him in elimination throughout the day were Mohsin Charania, Jan Suchanek, Dan Shak, Mike Leah, Michael Kanaan, Daniel Neilson, and 2013 WSOP Main Event champ Ryan Riess, who fell in Level 5 when he played a big pot against recent WSOP bracelet winner Sam Higgs.

Riess' end happened when Higgs raised to 1,000 and got two callers before Riess made it 5,000 out of the big blind. Higgs, as well as the two other opponents, called and they went four ways to the {4-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{8-Spades} flop. Riess checked, Higgs bet 12,000, got one call and one fold, then the former WSOP Main Event champion check-raised all in for just over 30,000 on top of Higgs' bet. Higgs moved all in to isolate, and the cold caller folded.

Higgs showed {A-}{K-}, and Riess was in trouble with {A-}{Q-}. Both the {9-Spades} on the turn and {5-Clubs} on the river failed to improve "Riess the Beast," and he was gone.

While many fell, plenty of notables punched their tickets to Day 2 including Jack Salter (102,300), Jackie Glazier (98,500), Higgs (80,750), David Gorr (58,150), Jonathan Little (56,150), Jeff Lisandro (48,875), and Phil Hellmuth (24,150).

Day 1b will kick off at 12:30 p.m. local time as an entire new slew of players take their shot at poker glory. Among those expected to play are defending champ Daniel Negreanu; current WSOP Player of the Year leader George Danzer, who won his third gold bracelet of 2014 earlier today by taking down Event #7: $5,000 8-Game Mixed for AU$84,600; former WSOP champs Greg Merson and Jonathan Duhamel; and Ismael Bojang, who has cashed in four of eight events thus far at the 2014 WSOP Asia-Pacific.

A Late One for Karamalikis

Nível 6 : 250/500, 50 ante

Jonathan Karamalikis raised to 1,000 from the button and then called when Jack Salter three-bet to 2,850 from the small blind. Karamalikis proceeded to call bets of 2,700 and 4,625 on the {6-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} flop and {2-Spades} turn respectively, and then both players checked the {7-Clubs} river.

Salter showed the {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}, but it was no good as Karamalikis held two pair with the {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}.

Four More Hands

Nível 6 : 250/500, 50 ante

The clock has been stopped with 10 minutes left in level six and four more hands have been announced before all remaining players get to bag and tag their chips.

"It's Awfully Cold in this Room"

Nível 6 : 250/500, 50 ante

Action folded to 13-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth on the button and he raised to 1,300. Kevin Clark called from the small blind, the big blind folded, and it was heads-up action to the {a-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{8-Hearts} flop, which both players checked.

After the dealer burned and turned the {2-Diamonds}, Clark led out for 1,700 and Hellmuth double checked his cards before making the call. The {4-Hearts} river saw Clark bet again, this time 2,600, and Hellmuth snap-called.

Clark rolled over the {k-Hearts}{a-Clubs} for a flush, and it was good as Hellmuth showed an inferior flush with the {j-Hearts}{a-Spades}.

"Oh, it's awfully cold in this room," Hellmuth said with a laugh.

Emanuel Seal
Emanuel Seal

Emanuel Seal called off a four-bet shove for his last 19,000 or-so chips with {A-Hearts} {K-Spades} and his opponent turned over {K-Clubs} {K-Diamonds}. There was no glimpse of hope on the {8-Spades} {6-Clubs} {10-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds} {9-Spades} board and Seal grabbed his belongings just before the end of the day.

Three-Bet from Sotiropoulos

Nível 6 : 250/500, 50 ante

George Sotiropoulos three-bet an open raise by John Moffitt from 1,500 to 3,950 and the player on the button tank-called, Moffitt eyed the two stacks of his opponents and also tossed in the extra chips. On the {6-Spades} {3-Hearts} {K-Clubs} flop, Sotiropoulos got through with a continuation bet of 5,350 chips as both opponents mucked.

Liu Pays Off Aces

Nível 6 : 250/500, 50 ante

Xuan Liu was involved in a pot as preflop aggressor from the button and she found an opponent in the gentleman one seat over in the small blind. On the {2-Spades} {5-Clubs} {9-Diamonds} flop, the player in the small blind bet 2,100 and Liu called. The Canadian also paid the second barrel worth 3,500 on the {K-Diamonds} turn and the {6-Spades} river completed the board.

A third and final barrel for 6,000 by the player in the small blind saw the Canadian tank for about a minute and Liu then called only to muck versus {A-Diamonds} {A-Clubs}.

Sylvia Stars on Broadway

Nível 6 : 250/500, 50 ante

With approximately 20,000 in the pot and a board reading {q-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{a-Hearts}, 2012 WSOP runner-up Jesse Sylvia bet 16,700 from the small blind and David "MissOracle" Yan thought for a bit before calling from the button.

When the {8-Clubs} completed the board on the river, Sylvia paused for about 40 seconds before coming out with a bet of 22,300. Yan thought equally as long before dropping in a call, and then he mucked when Sylvia rolled over the {k-Spades}{j-Clubs} for Broadway, which was the nuts.
