Day 1b has been completed in the the Hollywood Poker Open Toledo $1,115 Regional Main Event, and the Day 2 field is set. With 323 total entries in the tournament, a new record was set for largest HPO Regional Main Event. The top 36 places will reach the money, with the winner set to earn $77,514.

Nicholas DePalma ended the day atop the leaderboard with 298,000 in chips. DePalma had a healthy stack most of the day, but as the evening went on he shot to the lead. Not only did DePalma bag the chip lead on Day 1b, but he topped all survivors moving forward. On Day 1a, Lance Howard finished with 288,000 in chips as the biggest stack, so he'll enter Day 2 second on the leaderboard.

Firas Sadou may not have the biggest stack, but he had one exciting roller coaster of a day. He reentered at least three times and the third bullet proved to be the charm as he rode it all the way to Day 2. He was soaring near 200,000 in chips before a series of unfortunate events led him short stacked. But, Sadou battled back and ended the day on 96,500.

Jacob Wojtuniecki (56,500) joined his brother Phillip Wojtuniecki (143,500) in advancing to Day 2, but their other brother Erik Wojtuniecki failed to make it through.

The 34 players who survived Day 1b will join the 14 from Day 1a, which included HPO ambassador and 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Chris Moneymaker. Day 2 will start on Sunday at 12:15 p.m. local time and play will continue until a winner is crowned.

Stay tuned to PokerNews.com for the thrilling conclusion of this record-setting event.

Southerland Tales

• Nivo 14: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante
Ken Southerland (left) Doubles through Bryan Norris (far right)
Ken Southerland (left) Doubles through Bryan Norris (far right)

Ken Southerland just doubled up through Bryan Norris.

He shoved and Norris shoved over the top for more. Southerland had {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts} and needed a lot of help to beat the {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs} of Norris.

He got all the help he could possibly want when the board ran out {a-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{j-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}, giving him a full house.

Norris was still after the pot, seeming to have the wind knocked out of him at this critical stage in the tournament. He is now left with under ten big blinds.

Satish Thakur
Satish Thakur

Kamiran Taymour opened the action by limping from early position. Satish Thakur called and so did Brian Lutz from the big blind.

The flop came {2-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{2-Spades} and Lutz checked to Taymour. Taymour bet 4,800 and Thakur called. Lutz folded leaving the two heads up.

The turn was the {8-Clubs} and both players checked. The river was the {3-Spades} and Taymour led out for 6,600. Thakur quickly called and Taymour gave a nod, as if to say good call. He held his hand for a second and Thakur showed {k-Hearts}{2-Hearts} for trips. Taymour mucked

Sadou Going Strong

• Nivo 13: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
Firas Sadou
Firas Sadou

Firas Sadou raised to 5,000 from middle position and Connor Burchwell defended from the big blind.

The flop came {4-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} and both players checked. The turn was the {10-Spades} and Burchwell checked to Sadou. Sadou bet 4,000. Burchwell called.

The river was the {9-Diamonds} and Burchwell checked again. This time Sadou reached for a stack of 1,000 chips and made a move like he was going to slide it into the pot. Instead, he grabbed a couple chips off the top, then put them back. After that, he counted out 12,000 in chips and grabbed it with two hands. He tossed them into the pot, making an x-motion with each hand as he made his bet.

Burchwell called and Sadou showed {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} for a flush. Burchwell mucked.
