Liebert Loses a Race

• Nivo 11: 500-1,000, 100 ante

We missed the action on the hand but we saw Kathy Liebert collecting her things and leaving the tournament area. From what we gathered Liebert lost a race holding {A-} {J-} against Justin Pechie's pocket tens.

A Little Prank to Start the Day

• Nivo 11: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Catching the action on the {8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop, Marios Savvides moved all in for his final 20,000. John May thought for a minute or two before deciding to call. Savvides slammed over his {J-}{J-} and was ahead of the {10-}{10-} holdings of May.

Savvides put his forehead on the table and covered his face with his arms so that he couldn't see the turn and river. Although it came a harmless {2-} and {5-}, Shane Sigsbee decided to have some fun and let out an "Ohhhh!!!!" on the river. Dean Hamrick joined along with a sigh of his own. Savvides lifted his head thinking he had lost the pot, only to smile and give Sigsbee a playful shove as he raked in the chips.

Savvides now sits with 50,000 while May has been crippled to 10,000.

Day 2 Getting Set to Begin

Peter Hernandez is Our Day 1 Chip Leader.
Peter Hernandez is Our Day 1 Chip Leader.

After an action packed Day 1 to the only Triple Chance Tournament in the series this year, we were left with just 157 players left fighting for the bracelet. Among those still competing are Andy Black, Isaac Haxton, Justin Smith, Ted Forrest, Kathy Liebert and Andy Frankenberger. One table in particular, number 366, should be especially entertaining. Carlos Mortensen and Sam Trickett will be sitting next to each other with David Sklansky only a couple of seats down from them.

There are a few players already over the 100,000 mark. The stacks of J.C. Tran, Jonathan "Monster_Dong" Karamilikis, and Bradley McFarland have all hit six figures but none were able to capture the chip lead. They are all chasing Peter Hernandez who has a whopping 124,700 chips! To put it into perspective, the average chip stack won't surpass that number until we get down to less than 50 players!

Another thing to keep an eye on early is that we are just 13 eliminations away from the money. Some players will be trying to cash while others take advantage of the bubble and attack the short stacks. The excitement and heartbreak the WSOP is so well known for is sure to happen early, late and all day in between. You won't want to miss any of the action when play resumes in about 15 minutes at 2:30 pm local time so stay close to PokerNews for all your updates!
