Robert Mizrachi Leads the 6-Handed Championship into Day 2

After ten 60-minute levels were played out in the first day of the $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed Championship, Robert Mizrachi will return as the Day 2 chip leader after he bagged an impressive 364,100.

A field of 327 players came together today, and 115 of them will return on Thursday, July 12, at 2pm. However, it is expected that a few additional faces will be added to the line-up because registration will remain open until the start of play.

Peter Weinand (358,900), Jason Mangold (350,100), Michael Gathy (345,000) and Mark Teltscher (314,500) also bagged big stacks with well-known faces Ben Lamb (203,900), Jason Koon (156,000), Loni Harwood (154,600) and Jeff Gross (147,000) all progressing. Both Daniel Negreanu (37,300), and Liv Boeree (30,000) also made it through, albeit as the short stacks.

When the play got underway only 37 players were in their seats, but the field quickly grew, and the entrants were coming and going throughout the day.

Ivan Luca had quite the day after he started in the Main Event and ended up bagging 117,700 in Event #74. Luca was one of the returning 27 Main Event players, ultimately exiting in 20th place for $282,630. He gave himself a couple of hours break before jumping into the 6-handed Championship where his chip stack swung up and down, but he ultimately ended on a high.

WSOP Player of the year contender Shaun Deeb ran up his stack early on but had a set back in level 8 against Loni Harwood. Deeb called Harwood's all-in on the river and saw his pair of tens was no good against Harwood's king-high flush. But Deeb was able to rebuild and ended the day with 182,700.

Current POTY leader John Hennigan was one of the big names to depart throughout the day, and he was joined at the rail by many others including Niall Farrell, Dan Shak, Ryan Laplante, Chance Kornuth, Scotty Nguyen, Manig Loeser, Daniel Strelitz, Matt Berkey, Steffen Sontheimer, Adrian Mateos, Jonathan Little, Simon Trumper, Kristen Bicknell and Max Silver.

When play resumes the blinds will begin at 1,000/2000/2000 big blind ante. PokerNews will be back with all the $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed Championship Day 2 action from 2pm on Thursday, July 12, as the remaining players battle for a place in the final day.

Nível 8 : 500/1,000, 1,000 ante
Jonathan Little
Jonathan Little

Jonathan Little was up against Dominik Nitsche in blind-on-blind action with the board down {7-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{10-Spades}. Little bet 15,000 and Nitsche called.

The river was the {q-Diamonds} and Little bet 28,000 into the pot which was around 39,000. Nitsche went into the tank before he raised all in for around 70,000. Little was covered by Nitsche and contemplated his decision. A minute went by, and Little checked his cards and stacked his chips into a single pile. He gave himself another minute to think before he made the call.

Dominik Nitsche: {k-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Jonathan Little: {j-Spades}{7-Clubs}

Little had flopped two pair, but Nitsche had got there on the river with a straight to eliminate Little at the start of the level.

The WSOP Player of the Year is often in the back of player's minds when it gets near to the end of the series and players often adjust their schedule if they have a shot at the title.

Right now, the battle seems to be between John Hennigan and Shaun Deeb.

Hennigan leads with 3,130.76 points and Deeb is close behind with 3,111.64. Deeb sat down in this event early on and catapulted himself into the top chip counts so far. Hennigan, however, has just entered the proceedings as he looks to extend his lead.

Liv Boeree in a previous event
Liv Boeree in a previous event

Liv Boeree just entered the tournament and she's off to a good start.

It folded around to Sergio Aido in the small blind and he limped. Big blind Boeree raised to 2,100 and Aido called the raise.

The flop came down {3-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{K-Clubs}. Aido checked to Boeree and she bet 1,600. Aido called again.

The turn was the {10-Spades} and Aido check-called again when Boeree bet. This time the bet was 4,800 and both players went to the river.

The dealer dealt the {6-Clubs} river card to complete the board and Aido checked to Boeree for a final time. Boeree bet 16,200 and Aido went in the tank. He thought about it for a couple of minutes before eventually letting go of his hand.

Bicknell Trumps Trumper

Nível 5 : 300/500, 500 ante
Kristen Bicknell
Kristen Bicknell

With an already complete board of {3-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} out there, Kristen Bicknell had 4 peach colored 5,000 chips laying in front of her with a pot in the middle of well over 20,000 already. The action was on Simon Trumper and he took his time to figure out what to do.

After a while, he ended up calling and Bicknell showed {4-Clubs}{3-Spades} for a full house. Trumper showed the {5-Diamonds} for a straight, but with the river card out there giving Bicknell a full house he lost the hand.

Another player at the table claimed to have folded seven-five while Bicknell was already stacking up her newly won chips.

Joe Stapleton - Randall Emmett
Joe Stapleton - Randall Emmett

Randall Emmett enjoyed some laughs with his new tablemates after he found himself surrounded by several professionals including Alex Foxen, Dominik Nitsche, Max Silver and Jonathan Little.

The American film and television producer joked about how he saw his changes against some of the best players in the world, but just took down a pot against Max Silver.

Emmett and Silver were heads-up on an {a-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{k-Clubs} flop, and Silver checked to Emmett on the button, who also checked. Both players checked again on the {2-Clubs} turn and for the third time after the {3-Clubs} river came.

Emmett revealed he had {k-Diamonds}{10-Spades} for a pair and Silver conceded the pot.

Great Start for Deeb

Nível 2 : 100/200, 200 ante
Shaun Deeb
Shaun Deeb

The board was already reading {9-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} and Shaun Deeb was facing a 2,700 bet in the cutoff after big blind Chance Kornuth put in the middle. Deeb called and both players saw the river.

The {10-Spades} river completed the board and Kornuth bet 20,000. Deeb called the 100 big blind bet and saw Kornuth table {A-Spades}{7-Clubs}. After he took a good look he opened up {J-Spades}{9-Spades} himself for a straight and the winning hand.

Deeb could launch himself in the top spot of the Player of the Year race again by cashing in this event, even though it's gonna be really exciting.

Event #74: Big Blind Antes $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed Championship Kicks Off at 3 P.M.

Chips & Cards
Chips & Cards

With the Main Event on Day 7 and a lot of tournaments either starting or running already today, it's time for another Championship event. It's time for Event #74: Big Blind Antes $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed Championship.

Although the World Series of Poker says this event is a new event on the schedule, the 6-handed Championship on last year's schedule was won by Dmitry Yurasov. The only difference between last year's event and the one starting today is that today's event will make use of the big blind ante format.

Instead of a regular ante where every player will put in the required amount, there's only one player who pays the ante. In this case, the big blind pays an ante the size of the big blind and that will speed up play.

Players will start with 50,000 in chips and start in the level 100/200 with no ante. The big blind ante will come in play during the second level of the day which is 100/200 with a 200 big blind ante. The tournament is set to play ten 60-minute levels on Day 1 with a 15-minute break after every two levels. The tournament will feature no dinner break on Day 1.
