Once registration was closed at the start of Level 6, Event #29: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em here at the 2014 World Series of Poker drew a total of 1,165 entries. This is considerably down compared to the 1,736 from last year, however, back then the tournament took place towards the end of the Series just before the Main Event.

At the end of Day 1, 209 players bagged chips and the top 117 spots will get paid at least $5,035. The player best positioned in the quest towards claiming the first-place-prize of $536,768 was Barry Hutter, who has two final tables on the World Poker Tour and a sixth-place in a $1,000 WSOP event in 2013 to his name. Hutter previously cashed in Event #2: $25,000 Mixed-Max No-Limit Hold'em two weeks ago and accumulated 150,500 in chips here on Day 1.

Notable names that made it through with big stacks included Grayson Ramage (138,800), 2013 bracelet winner Justin Oliver (115,100), Rep Porter (107,900), Isaac Baron (103,100), and Ben Warrington (86,700).

Roberto Romanello (73,100) is seeking yet another attempt to join the triple crown club, and other notable names to get through to Day 2 included Ravi Raghavan (54,100), Tristan Wade (52,900), Will "The Thrill" Failla (51,300), Matt Affleck (45,900), former November Niner David Benefield (45,100), Amanda Musumeci (33,000), Sam Cohen (26,300), and Jamie Kerstetter (22,200).

Among those that joined the rail before the end of Level 10 were Phil Hellmuth, Faraz Jaka, Jennifer Tilly, defending Main Event champion Ryan Riess, Joseph Cheong, Ana Marquez, 2014 bracelet winners Vanessa Selbst and Dominik Nitsche, David Williams, and Sean Jazayeri.

Jazayeri jumped into the lead very early on, but eventually lost a big flip against Jorge Walker and could not spin up the remaining stack.

The PokerNews team will be back at 1 p.m. Las Vegas time when the action resumes in Level 11 at blinds 500/1,000 with an ante of 100 and the money will be reached within the first couple hours of the day.

Soulier Loses Final Flip

Nível 8 : 250/500, 50 ante
Fabrice Soulier
Fabrice Soulier

It all started so well for Fabrice "fabsoul" Soulier earlier today, but ended in a coin flip for his last 15,000 or so chips. There was a raise to 1,300, Soulier and two other players called and Jake Schwartz raised to 8,100.

The Frenchman was his sole active opponent and moved all in with {3-}{3-}. Schwartz called with {A-}{Q-} and got there on the {A-}{K-}{9-}{9-}{6-} board.

Max Silver Eliminated in Massive Pot

Nível 8 : 250/500, 50 ante
Max Silver from a previous event
Max Silver from a previous event

We only arrived at the {10-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{7-Clubs} flop and Max Silver bet 2,100 from the hijack, the button called and Ankush Mandavia folded from the big blind. On the {3-Hearts} turn, Silver check-raised from 3,000 to 9,600 and his opponent, Phu Ngo, moved all in after approximately 30 seconds.

Silver was struck and went deep into the think tank, considering to "gamble". Ngo didn't call the time on it and Silver was talking to himself and seeking moral advise from Mandavia. "{Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs} or {Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts} would be really sick," he said. "One more minute please." Ultimately he grabbed some chips of his 28,000 stack and called all in with slightly less chips than his opponent.

Silver: {6-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Ngo: {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}

The {6-Spades} on the river didn't help Silver as it completed the straight for Ngo and the Brit has been eliminated.

Max SilverMade an awful awful play to put myself in a tough spot I got wrong for 85k pot at 23k average. Oh well. Happens. 10k 6m tomorrow

In Event #25: $2,500 Omaha/Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low at the 2014 World Series of Poker, Mike Matusow was penalized for "excessive celebration" deep into the money. After being slapped with a one-round penalty, the ruling quickly became a hot topic with the poker community. PokerNews spoke with "The Mouth" about the incident to get his thoughts and reaction, and to see how it affected his play.

Madsen Parked

Nível 2 : 50/100, 0 ante
Jeff Madsen
Jeff Madsen

After two limpers entered the pot in front of him, Jeff Madsen did the same from the cutoff, only to see Chris Park squeeze from the button with a raise to 525.

The limpers left the scene rather quickly and Madsen then took his time deliberating before cutting out a three-betting stack of 1,800.

Park wasted little time in shipping the rest of his stack forward, and Madsen essentially beat him to the pot with his call, putting his own stack at risk in the process.

Madsen: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}
Park: {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}

The two were flipping for all the marbles, and when the flop rained down {k-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{8-Clubs} Madsen took the lead with his pair of kings. The pro's expression remained stoic, however, as he knows better than most that fortunes can turn in a flash.

Turn: {9-Diamonds}

Madsen's flinched at the sight of a two-out disaster which left him drawing dead, before standing up to make his exit as the meaningless river card came the {8-Diamonds}.

Defending champion Nikolaus Teichert
Defending champion Nikolaus Teichert

The first day of Event #29: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em gets underway in the Brasilia and Pavilion rooms at at 12 p.m. Vegas time. In 2013, Nikolaus Teichert defeated a 1,736-entry strong field and captured his first golden bracelet. The German is expected to try and defend his title after already cashing in the Seniors Championship (Event #17).

All players will begin with 7,500 in chips. They will be playing 11 levels of 60 minutes each; every two levels there will be a 20-minute break with a 90-minute dinner break following Level 6. Other players that we expect in today's field are EPT regular Kitty Kuo and pretty much all familiar faces from the circuit who are not returning for Day 2 of the $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship.

Follow the action on PokerNews shortly to see all good and bad beats, dramatic eliminations, and key hands on the way to the crowning of another champion this upcoming Sunday.
