Day 1 of Event #19: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em started at noon today and, by the time registration closed during dinner break eight and a half hours later, 2,086 players had passed through registration to join the field.

All survivors made it through 11 levels. As players bagged and tagged their stacks for Day 2, it was Justin Filtz putting away the most chips with 135,800.

We saw plenty of big names come and go today. Among those who didn’t make it through were Tony Dunst, Jason Duval, Antonio Esfandiari, Jackie Glazier, Jeff Gross, Maurice Hawkins, Phil Ivey, Mike Leah, Kevin MacPhee, Greg Mueller, Luca Pagano, Mickey Petersen, Dwyte Pilgrim, Greg Raymer, Matt Salsberg, Vanessa Selbst, Joe Serock, Mike Sowers, Jennifer Shahade, and JC Tran.

The big names still holding onto some chips include Matt Affleck, Darryll Fish, Bart Hanson, Loni Harwood, Allen Kessler, Scott Montgomery, David Peters, and Jason Somerville.

The prize pool has been set at $2,816,100, and everyone has their eye on the top prize of $514,027. From the field, 216 players will get paid in this event, and when action completed on Day 1, the bubble was not far off. It should burst very early on Sunday's Day 2 when play reconvenes at 1 p.m.

Make sure to follow along with the PokerNews Live Reporting blog to keep up with all the action on Day 2. Until then, goodnight from Las Vegas.

Shahade Wiped Out in Two

Nível 10 : 400/800, 100 ante
Jennifer Shahade's day has come to an end.
Jennifer Shahade's day has come to an end.

Chess champion Jennifer Shahade was just crippled in an all-in-preflop pot, and then finished off in the very next hand.

Shahade opened to 1,800 in middle position and the player in the cutoff pushed his small stack all in. Shahade called and flipped over {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}, a big underdog to her opponent's {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}. The board ran out {k-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and Shahade was left with just 3,300 to try to run up.

In the next hand, she elected to raise to 2,500 from middle position, leaving just a few hundred behind. The player to her left called and everyone else folded. The flop came {q-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{10-Clubs} and Shahade check-called her opponent's all-in bet. She showed {j-Hearts}{8-Spades} and still had a few outs in the deck, but her opponent had {a-Clubs}{q-Spades} for top pair and Shahade had no luck improving on the turn or river.

Petersen's Aces Need a Medic

Nível 7 : 150/300, 25 ante
Mickey Petersen's aces got cracked.
Mickey Petersen's aces got cracked.

PokerStars Team Online Pro Mickey Petersen has been nursing a short stack for most of the day and seems unable to get anything going. He sat in the small blind with 5,300 chips and pushed all in after the hijack raised to 650 and the cutoff called. The initial raiser folded and 2008 bracelet-winner Nenad Medic in the cutoff called. Petersen flipped up {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}, looking to be poised to double, and Medic needed lots of help with {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}. The board flopped badly for Petersen with {a-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{2-Hearts}, as Medic had made a flush. Petersen needed the board to pair or to find the fourth ace in the deck, but the turn and river of {8-Hearts} and {q-Spades} were of no assistance, and Petersen was forced to leave the table. Medic now sits on a stack of 14,200.

Greg Raymer
Greg Raymer

In 2004, Greg Raymer finished on top of what was at the time the largest World Series of Poker Main Event ever held, earning $5 million and cementing himself in the poker history books. It's been a decade since Raymer's incredible win, and one that's been filled with plenty of ups and downs.

PokerNews contributor Peter Alson recently sat down with Raymer to discuss everything from reflecting back on his big victory, his poker career since, and even his personal issues off the felt.

Hawkins Doubles His Short Stack

Nível 5 : 100/200, 0 ante
Maurice Hawkins doubled up.
Maurice Hawkins doubled up.

A player under the gun pushed his small stack all in and Maurice Hawkins called with an even shorter stack in middle position. Hawkins flipped over {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}, leaving his opponent drawing pretty thin with {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}. The flop of {10-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{2-Hearts} gave both of them the irrelevant top pair, but a heart flush draw was on the board. The turn and river were a heartless {8-Diamonds}{9-Spades} and Hawkins doubled up to slightly less than what he started the day with.
