On Sunday, the 2014 World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific continued with Day 1 action from Event #3 $1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha (PLO). The tournament attracted 123 runners – down 49 from the year before – which created a prize pool of $184,500 that is to be awarded to the top 16 finishers with the winner taking home $51,660.

The man best positioned to make a run at the five-figure payday, as well as the championship gold bracelet, is Australian Poker Hall of Famer and WSOP bracelet winner, who lead the advancing 22 players with 71,200. However, several others are looking to stand in his way including Jeff Lisandro (60,400), Jason Gray (34,500), Ismael Bojang (27,000), Oliver Gill (26,300), Ami Barer (25,600), and Mike Watson (6,900).

PLO is a volatile game, so it was no surprise to see players hit the rail early. Among the first to go was Mike Leah, who said he called a raise holding the {a-Spades}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{3-Spades} and then called a bet on the {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{10-} flop. Leah, who had two pair with a flush draw, called another bet on the turn, and then put out a big bet after his opponent checked the river, which was a heart. His opponent woke up with a check-raise, and Leah called off his last few hundred with his flush. Unfortunately for him, it was no good as his opponent held the nut flush with {k-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{x-}{x-}.

Others who fell on Day 1 included Jonathan Duhamel, Mohsin Charania, Jeff Madsen, Jonathan Dimmig, Phil Hellmuth, Ryan Riess, Billy “The Croc” Argyros, Antonio Esfandiari, and Australia’s very own Joe Hachem, who was playing in his first event of the 2014 WSOP APAC.

As for Benson, he got many of his chips in the last level of the night. On a flop of {j-Spades}{4-Spades}{6-Clubs}, two players checked before Benson bet out 6,000 from the hijack. Dylan Wilkerson then went into the tank for a minute from the cut off before potting to 24,800. The other two players got out of the way before Benson moved all in for a total of 30,300 and was called.

Benson: {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}{6-Spades}{7-Clubs}
Wilkerson: {q-Spades}{2-Spades}{4-Clubs}{q-Clubs}

Benson had the better over pair as well as the nut flush draw leaving Wilkerson with very few outs. The {j-Hearts} on the turn and {k-Diamonds} on the river were no help, and after a count of all the chips it was determined that Wilkerson had 100 less then Benson and was therefore eliminated.

The remaining 22 players will return to action at 12:30 p.m. local time on Monday, and the plan is to play down to the final table of nine. Of course the PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be there every step of the way to bring you all the action and eliminations from the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia.

Bagging and Tagging

The remaining players are now bagging and tagging for the night. We'll be back with chip counts and a full recap of the Day 1 action shortly. Stay tuned.

Chevalier Crippled Before End of Play

• Nivo 8: 300-600, 0 ante

The action started with Ami Barer opening to 1,800 from under the gun. Van Marcus made the call from the button before Daniel Chevalier raised it up to 7,700 from the big blind. Barer made the quick call forcing Marcus out of the hand.

The flop came down {8-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{10-Clubs} and Chevalier moved all in for his last 6,300 in chips. Barer had exactly 5,000 behind and went into the tank for a minute. He eventually made the call and both players tabled their cards.

Barer: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}{j-Hearts}{4-Spades}
Chevalier: {A-Clubs}{a-Spades}{10-Spades}{6-Spades}

Barer needed a queen to take the lead in the hand and got exactly that as the {q-Clubs} fell on the turn. Chevalier could only look on in disbelief as the {j-Diamonds} completed the board.

Chevalier was able to double up the very next hand to move up to 3,200 to stay alive with two hands remaining in the night.

Dilemma Diverted

• Nivo 8: 300-600, 0 ante

The action folded around to Ismael Bojang on the button who opened to 1,500. Tam Truong then raised it up to 4,800 from the big blind. Bojang called and both players watched as the flop came down {j-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{6-Spades}. Truong then moved all in for his last 4,000 and was called.

Truong: {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Bojang: {k-Spades}{4-Spades}{10-Spades}{2-Clubs}

Truong tabled his cards as did Bojang, but the dealer didn’t hear the call and mucked Bojang’s cards. Bojang as well as the table quickly tried to fix the problem, with the tournament director needing to be called over to retrieve the cards.

After pulling out the bottom four cards from the muck and having all the players confirm they were indeed Bojang’s, the dealer proceeded to complete the board. Both players had the same straight draw but Truong had the draw to the higher straight. The {10-Hearts} gave Truong the higher straight with the meaningless {9-Diamonds} coming on the river.

Benson Takes Out Wilkerson

• Nivo 8: 300-600, 0 ante

We arrived at the table with the flop showing {j-Spades}{4-Spades}{6-Clubs}. The players in the big blind and under the gun checked their option before Gary Benson bet out 6,000 from the hijack. Dylan Wilkerson then went into the tank for a minute from the cut off before potting to 24,800. The other two players got out of the way before Benson moved all in for a total of 30,300 and was called.

Benson: {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}{6-Spades}{7-Clubs}
Wilkerson: {q-Spades}{2-Spades}{4-Clubs}{q-Clubs}

Benson had the better over pair as well as the nut flush draw leaving Wilkerson with very few outs. The {j-Hearts} on the turn and {k-Diamonds} on the river were no help, and after a count of all the chips it was determined that Wilkerson had 100 less then Benson and was therefore eliminated.
