Engel Goes Runner-Runner

Nível 11 : 600/1,200, 200 ante

The board read {8-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs} with about 19,000 in the middle already. The action was on Ari Engel and he checked to his opponent who bet 10,000. Engel slid out a raise to about 22,500 and his opponent called. Engel tabled {K-Clubs}{5-Clubs} to make a flush by the river.

Engel is looking good to at least make the money in Day 1e and he is hoping to keep the success going in order to find a bag at the end of the day. Mike Leah is staying close on his heels with over 70,000 chips as well.

Blair Matheson Only Player Over 100,000

Nível 10 : 500/1,000, 100 ante

Although there were many entries in Day 1e today, it has been a struggle to crack the 100,000-chip barrier. There are a lot of players close but the only one to do so thus far is Blair Matheson from Scotland. He is sitting at around 135,000 right now and showing no signs of slowing down.

Notables Busted

Nível 10 : 500/1,000, 100 ante

Many notables registered for Day 1, but, with such a big field, it's tough for them to all make it through. Some notables to have busted so far include Kenny Hallaert, Kristen Bicknell, Maurice Hawkins, Jean-Pascal Savard, and Andy Frankenberker. Look for some or most of these players to fire another bullet in Day 1f coming up at 4 p.m.

Leah Chips Up but Loses a Race

Nível 9 : 400/800, 100 ante

Mike Leah had built his stack up to 53,000 but then, unfortunately, lost a race that caused a setback. His opponent raised to 2,000 from under the gun and Leah three-bet to 6,000. The action was folded back around to his opponent who moved all in for around 23,000. Leah quickly called and the hands were tabled.

Leah: {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}
Opponent: {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}

The jack-high board looked good for Leah to add to his chip lead up to the turn, but the {A-Clubs} on the river kept his opponent alive and put a solid dent in Leah's stack.
