The first level of the day has brought plenty of action, with the survivors of Day 1a duking it out in the Amazon room, while the players from Day 1b are battling in the Brasilia and Pavilion rooms. Here are some of the highlights so far.
Doyle Brunson has had a great start to his day, building his stack up from 81,000 to 118,500 in the first level.
Mike “The Mouth” Matusow has also added to his stack thanks in large part to a two outer on the turn to beat his opponent’s queens.
It hasn’t been all good for everyone though, as 2003 Main Event Champion Chris Moneymaker was eliminated earlier in the level.
And lastly, we have a new chip leader in today’s play: Sergio Castelluccio, who is over in the Amazon room. We caught him in a hand just before the break that saw his stack go up to 245,000.
The players are taking their first break of the day. Cards will be back in the air in 20 minutes.
