WSOP Glory Awaits in Event #43: $500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold'em

Anthony Koutsos

Anthony Koutsos had the dream of every player at the World Series of Poker come true.

The San Francisco real estate agent’s largest previous cash was $6,000. He had never cashed in a WSOP event. Then, at the 2021 WSOP, he won the $500 No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout, outlasting a massive field of 2,930 players to take home $167,272 and the prestigious gold bracelet.

A similar fate awaits one lucky player when Event #43: $500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em begins today at 11 a.m. local time. Another large field will gather in the Paris Ballroom, an eclectic mix of seasoned pros and amateurs taking their shot at WSOP glory, just like Koutsos did last year

Play on Day 1 will consist of 22 half-hour levels. There will be a 75-minute dinner break after Level 12, which should come around 5:40 p.m. Late registration is open through the end of the dinner break and since this is a freezeout, no reentries are allowed.

This is a two-day event, so action should be fast and furious. A starting stack of 25,000 will be worth only 10 big blinds after just six hours of play.

It is the perfect opportunity for a player to realize their dream, and PokerNews will be on hand to capture all the action until one champion is left standing.

Pizzi Claims an Early Stack

Nível 1 : 100/100, 100 ante

All the money was already in the middle on a {10-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{k-Hearts} flop as Walter Pizzi had an opponent all in for his last 1,000.

The all-in player was showing {4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}, but Pizzi had out-flopped him with {k-Spades}{6-Diamonds} for a pair of kings.

The board ran out {8-Diamonds}{5-Spades} and Pizzi knocked out his opponent 15 minutes into Level 1.

According to Pizzi, the player had raised pre-flop and received multiple callers before Pizzi bet 2,000 on the flop, forcing everyone else out.

Di Santo Shoves the River

Nível 1 : 100/100, 100 ante

Three players, including Fabrizio Di Santo in the small blind, put in 1,100 and saw a flop of {q-Spades}{7-Spades}{4-Diamonds}.

Di Santo led out for 2,000 and the player in the big blind called, while the button got out of the way.

The turn came the {6-Diamonds} and Di Santo bet another 7,000. The big blind called again and they went heads up to the {4-Hearts} river.

Di Santo announced he was all in for his last 15,000 before his opponent quickly mucked. Di Santo flashed the {q-Diamonds} as he took the pot.

Lin Takes a Seat, Snaps Off an Opponent

Nível 2 : 100/200, 200 ante

Ren Lin has entered the tournament early on Level 2 and is already taking down pots.

In his last hand, Lin and an opponent went heads up to a {a-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop in a blind versus blind confrontation. The small blind bet 800 and Lin called.

Both players checked the {3-Diamonds} turn before the small blind threw out another 600 on the {q-Hearts} river.

Lin snap-called as his opponent turned over {k-Clubs}{3-Hearts} for a pair of threes. Lin, though, had {a-Clubs}{9-Hearts} for a pair of aces to take down the early pot.

Aldridge Loses One Early

Nível 2 : 100/200, 200 ante

A player in middle position opened to 700 and was called by a player in late position and Ken Aldridge out of the small blind.

Aldridge checked to the middle position player on a flop of {9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{j-Clubs} and the initial raiser continued for 1,000. Both the late position player and Aldridge called to keep action three-handed headed to the turn.

Aldridge took the betting lead on the {7-Spades} turn, betting out 1,300. That was enough to get the middle position player to fold but the player in late position was going nowhere and made the call.

The {k-Diamonds} river did nothing to convince Aldridge to slow down as he fired off another bet, this time sizing down to 1,100. His opponent thought for a little while before making the call. Aldridge showed down {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for a pair but it was no good as the late position player flipped over {7-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for turned trips.
