Welcome back to the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino and the 2017 World Series of Poker for Day 2 of the Event #17: $10,000 Dealers Choice 6-Handed Championship!

Day 1 on Thursday saw 102 hopefuls take a seat in this second and last dealers choice tournament on the schedule, and although the numbers dropped slightly compared to the last two years, the field was still incredibly stacked with bracelet winners, tournament veterans and high stakes cash game giants all looking to become the next Dealers Choice Championship winner.

Recent Event #9 winner Abe Mosseri was one of the early casualties yesterday along with Erik Sagstrom, Konstantin Puchkov, Alex Luneau, Jason Mercier, Shaun Deeb and Mike Leah. After winning Event #13, Frank Kassela jumped in the tournament but also found himself on the rail as big bet games saw chips fly across the table as fellow bracelet winners Randy Ohel, Phil Hellmuth, Nick Schulman, Brian Rast, Jeffrey Lisandro, Marco Johnson, David Bach, John Monnette and Jesse Martin were all eliminated. Reigning champion Jean Gaspard ran up a stack early, but his day would end early to mean a new champion will be crowned in 2017.

However the day belonged to Ray Dehkharghani who found himself the early chip leader and continually accumulated chips throughout the day. Although he dropped the chip lead on the penultimate hand of the night, Dehkharghani regained it on the final hand in a three-bet no-limit 2-7 single draw hand that saw him bag a healthy 265,000 in chips.

Right on Dehkharghani's heels is Russian Viacheslav Zhukov (258,400) and Zachary Freeman (257,200), while Schuyler Thornton (241,600), Dennis Eichhorn (230,000) and Jon Turner (212,100) are the only players who managed to surpass the 200,000-chip mark. But with 37 players remaining that include some of the best in the world, the rest of the leaderboard is still stacked with a plethora of bracelet-winners including 2015 winner of this event Quinn Do (94,500), 2014 $1,500 Dealers Choice winner Robert Mizrachi (80,000) and 2015 $1,500 Dealers Choice winner Carol Fuchs (61,000).

With 18 players guaranteed a piece of the prize pool and a $14,743 payday, it is expected that action will continue at its furious pace today as we first play down to the money, and then to the final table of six where a $273,962 first prize awaits whoever can top one of the most prestigious tournaments of the 2017 World Series of Poker!

Play is set to begin at 2:00 p.m. (PDT) with the PokerNews Live Reporting Team providing continuous live updates of all the Dealers Choice Championship action — so stay tuned right here!

Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo

Dennis Eichhorn raised to 6,000 and from the button, Joseph Couden called. The flop landed {4-Hearts}{2-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} and the action was checked through to see the {K-Hearts} roll off on the turn.

Eichhorn bet 10,000, Couden called, and the {10-Spades} completed the board on the river. Eichhorn tossed in 15,000 and Couden called again.

"Airball!" announced Eichhorn.

Couden spread his {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} for kings-up and was pushed the pot.

David Prociak
David Prociak

Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo

David Prociak opened in the cutoff and called a three-bet to 19,200 from Ryan Hughes, who was in the big blind. On the {3-Hearts}{3-Spades}{10-Hearts} flop, Hughes bet 16,000 and Prociak potted. Hughes took a long time but eventually called off his remaining 60,000 or so.

Prociak: {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}
Hughes: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

The turn was a {7-Clubs} and the river a {2-Spades}, giving Prociak a scooper with a boat.

Lukas Exits

Nível 11 : 5,000/10,000, 0 ante


Daniel Zack had the bring-in and a short-stacked Benjamin Lukas completed. Having not much more behind, Zack raised and Lukas called all in, then each player's boards ran out as follows:

Zack: {3-Spades}{2-Diamonds} / {5-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{A-Spades} / {9-Diamonds}
Lukas: {10-Clubs}{4-Hearts} / {Q-Clubs}{8-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} / {K-Clubs}

With Lukas unable to improve on his pair of queens on fifth street against Zack's aces, he would be eliminated in 36th place.

Both players then checked the {8-Spades} on the river.

Vitch tabled his {A-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} and Bleznick mucked.

Yockey Double Through Baker

Nível 11 : 5,000/10,000, 0 ante

Pot-Limit Omaha

Bryce Yockey had two pink 5,000-denomination chips in front of his cards and the action was on David Baker in the big blind. Baker mulled over a decision for some time before announcing a raise of pot. Yockey pushed forward his remaining 1,100 in chips to be all in for 11,100, and the cards were tabled.

Baker: {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Clubs}
Yockey: {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{J-Spades}

The board ran out {4-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{6-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}, giving Yockey the better two pair to double through.

Obst Shoves on Dehkharghani

Nível 11 : 5,000/10,000, 0 ante

No-Limit Five-Card Draw

Ray Dehkharghani put in 27,400 before the draw, and James Obst called him. Both players took a card, and Dehkharghani bet 38,000. Obst thought awhile and then told the dealer he was all in. It looked to be just over 160,000. After thinking awhile himself, Dehkharghani let his hand go and told Obst "nice hand."
