Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Harley Roars to Fast Start

• Nivo 1: 25-25, 0 ante

We caught up with the action as the board read {K-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{A-Spades} and 750 chips sitting in the pot. Our fellow PokerNews reporter Harley Stoffmaker, playing in his first WSOP event on one of his rare days off, had led out with a bet of 375 and his opponent studied before making the crying call.

Stoffmaker quickly flipped up his {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs} and his opponent mucked his cards, offering a "nice river kid."

With a relatively quick structure, accumulating chips early on is imperative, and Stoffmaker is off to a great start.

Hopefully all of our readers are enjoying PokerNews' coverage of the 2011 World Series of Poker. We're proud to be the official live reporting team again this year and it wouldn't be without all of your support. We'd just like to remind everyone that with such massive field sizes in many of these events, we're unable to track every single player in the chips counts as often as we'd like to.

Things on the tournament floor are constantly changing from hand to hand and we know you want every single piece of information you can handle. Many pros in all of these events update their Twitter account on the regular, so you might want to check out the PokerNews Twitter page to see what the players themselves are saying about their progress in the events.

Internet Woes

We seem to be having a little trouble with the Internet today in the Rio Pavilion. As always, we'll do our best to bring you everything we can from the floor, but please bear with us if things seem a bit slower than normal.
