Records are made to be broken, and Day 1 of Event #29: $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw smashed one today.

A field of 437 players eclipsed the previous tournament record by more than 140, creating a prize pool of $583,395. After 10 hour-long levels, just 122 remain of that original enormous field to chase the World Series of Poker bracelet and $127,809 first prize.

Leading the way is Ian O’Hara, who built up a chip lead of 294,500 by the end of the day. O'Hara has 39 career WSOP cashes and three final table appearances, but he has yet to win his elusive first bracelet. Brandon Shack-Harris (235,500) and 2007 Player of the Year Tom Schneider (207,500) also finished Day 1 among the largest stacks.

Jake Schwartz, runner-up to Phil Hellmuth in this event a year ago, bagged up 157,500. Hellmuth, who had been sidelined by a bout with COVID-19 for the past week, returned to defend his title near the end of late registration and made it through with 121,500. Mike Matusow (149,500) and 2022 bracelet winner Alex Livingston (103,000) are also among those returning for Day 2.

The story of the day, though, might have been Yanni Raz. The former member of the Israeli army and Los Angeles real estate tycoon didn’t intend to play in this tournament. He didn’t even know how to play 2-7 Lowball. He thought he was buying in to a No-Limit Hold’em event and tried to get a refund when he realized his mistake. But, despite needing to re-enter, he finished the day with 166,000, looking to complete a remarkable run to the bracelet.

Plenty of notables saw their tournament end on Day 1, including Daniel Negreanu, Maria Ho, and reigning Main Event champion Koray Aldemir.

The remaining players will return at 2 p.m. local time tomorrow inside the Bally’s Event Center. They are scheduled to play until just five remain.

Stay tuned to PokerNews throughout the day as this star-studded field jostles to make the money and secure a seat at the final table.

Players are bagging their chips at the end of Day 1 and will return to play tomorrow at 2 p.m. local time inside Bally's.

The tournament clock currently shows 122 players remaining.

Three More Hands

• Nivo 10: 1,000-1,500, 2,500 ante

Tournament staff have announced that three more hands will be played before the remaining players bag up for the night.

Hellmuth Snaps Off Hastings Near the End

A player in middle position raised to 4,000 before the draw. Phil Hellmuth called in the cutoff, as did Brian Hastings and Antonin Teisseire in the blinds.

Hastings and Teisseire each took two, the original raiser patted, and Hellmuth drew one. Hastings led out for 10,000 and Teisseire quickly folded.

The player in middle position called, as did Hellmuth. Hastings showed a nine-seven.

"Nine-six," Hellmuth said excitedly, showing {9-}{6-}{5-}{4-}{3-} to win the multi-way pot and cross 100,000 as he tries to defend his title.

Newton Adds Some More

Thomas Newton raised to 4,000 and received a call from Mike Matusow on the button and the player in the big blind.

Newton and the big blind each took two, while Matusow drew one. The big blind led out for 8,000 and only Newton called.

His opponent had a nine-eight, but Newton showed {9-}{7-}{6-}{5-}{2-} to win the pot and add more chips to his big stack.

"Thomas is back," Frank Kassela said after the hand.

"He never misses," another tablemate added.
