Day 1 of Event #25: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha attracted a field of 1,058 and after a fast-paced and action-filled day, with a whole host of big names entering.

The likes of Vanessa Selbst, Frank Kassela, Allen Kessler, Mike Ross, Shaun Deeb, Ryan Laplante, Mike Sexton, Rep Porter, Men Nguyen and Connor Drinan all played and bust today.

Such as the intensity of today’s action, the money bubble burst shortly before the final level of the day, with the remaining players all guaranteed $1,501. Martin Kabrhel was lucky to survive, as at one point he was all in from the big blind with just one big blind remaining. However, there were six limpers and the Czech player rivered a flush to stay alive.

Some players who bust in the money included Martin Kabrhel (154th - $1,501), Naoya Kihara (148th - $1,501), Manig Loeser (139th - $1,501) and Yuval Bronshtein (116th - $1,579).

Defending champion Sam Soverel also cashed in this event, but bust in the last level of the night in 111th for a payout of $1,579.

It’s also interesting to note that the second, third and fourth place finishers in last week’s $565 Pot-Limit Omaha Event all bagged up at the end of the night. Jason Stockfish (69,200), Steven Wolansky (14,100), Igor Sharaskin (118,600), and Scott Davies (45,900) will all return tomorrow.

There are still some big names left in the field including Bruno Politano (51,200), Nadar Kakhmazov (103,100), Michael Mizrachi (153,800), Dan Heimiller (16,800), Alex Foxen (102,000), Tony Cousineau (24,000), Jason Wheeler (92,00) and Fraser MacIntyre (111,100) but none of them come close to the monster stack of Casey Carroll.

He bagged up 210,800 and will return tomorrow with the intention of getting one step closer to the final table and shot at earning their first WSOP bracelet along with $179,126 in prize money.

The players will return Wednesday at 12 p.m.

Martin Kabrhel's Antics on the Bubble

Nível 9 : 400/800, 0 ante
Martin Kabrhel
Martin Kabrhel

In the last hand before the bubble, five players saw a flop of {2-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{10-Spades}. It checked to Martin Kabrhel, who bet 2,000, and the small blind was the only caller.

The turn was the {3-Spades}, and the small-blind check-called a bet of 4,000. The river was the {8-Hearts}, and it checked to Kabrhel, who moved all in covering his opponent. His opponent called. Kabrhel showed {3-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{5-Clubs} and lost to his opponent's {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{6-Spades}.

A few hands later, Kabrhel limped in, called a bet on the flop, then folded the turn, leaving himself with just one big blind.

An orbit later, Kabrhel was all in from the big blind, and there were six limpers. The six live players checked down a flop of {5-Spades}{7-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}, and after waiting for all hands at other tables to conclude, the hands were turned over:

Player 1: {a-Hearts}{8-Spades}{6-Hearts}{7-Spades}
Player 2: {4-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs}
Player 3: {k-Hearts}{a-Spades}{6-Spades}{7-Hearts}
Player 4: {5-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{2-Spades}{7-Diamonds}
Player 5: {a-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{8-Hearts}{2-Hearts}
Player 6: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}

That left Martin Kabrhel. The silent player, who one hand earlier had asked to see "the rules of the tournament" before acting on his hand (an act which resulted in the clock being called on him) turned over his hand. One by one, he tantalizingly exposed his cards: The {q-Hearts}. The {9-Clubs}. The {4-Diamonds}. The {j-Clubs}. That's a Jack-high flush, and he septupled his stack to 5,600.

JC Tran Gets a Fold

Nível 7 : 250/500, 0 ante
JC Tran
JC Tran

With 4,750 in the pot and the board reading {J-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Clubs}, JC Tran was in the cutoff and heads-up against a player in early position, who checked. Tran made a pot-sized bet, and his opponent went into the tank briefly.

"Do you have something, bro?" asked Tran's opponent.

"4,750," replied Tran, coldly.

He mucked shortly thereafter, and Tran took the pot.

Dana Belman Flops a Royal Flush; Rivers Quads; Eliminates an Opponent

Nível 7 : 250/500, 0 ante
Dana Belman
Dana Belman

On a {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{j-Hearts} board, Dana Belman and another opponent both checked.

The turn was the {9-Diamonds}, and his opponent check-called a bet of 2,000 from Belman.

The river was the {10-Clubs}, and his opponent checked again. Belman bet 3,000, and his opponent moved all in. Belman called.

Belman: {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}
Opponent: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

The all-in player had top boat, the third-best hand on this runout. Meanwhile, Belman had not just the second-best hand (quad tens) but the absolute nuts with a Royal Flush. Cue videos and pictures galore of the amazing runout.

Rep Porter Climbing

Nível 6 : 200/400, 0 ante
Rep Porter earlier this summer

The player under the gun opened with a raise to 800, the cutoff called, three-time bracelet winner Rep Porter called from the button, and both blinds called as well.

The flop came {J-Spades}{10-Hearts}{10-Clubs} and action checked to Porter who bet 1,800. The blinds folded, the preflop raiser called, and the cutoff folded.

The turn brought the {3-Spades} and the under-the-gun player checked. Porter bet 2,600 and his opponent called.

The river was the {3-Hearts} and Porter's opponent checked. Porter bet 3,000, his opponent folded, and Porter took the pot.

Men "The Master" Nguyen in the PLO Field

"They're all scary boards in this game!" said a player at Men "The Master" Nguyen's table as Nguyen pulled in a pot.

Nguyen laughed in agreement and stacked the chips on top of his stack.

The Vietnamese-American has two cashes to his name this year, the best of which was a 60th-place finish in Event #16: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Handed. He will be looking to add to his seven bracelets this year. The last time he topped a WSOP field was back in 2010 when he won the $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Championship for $394,807.
