Day 1 of Event #52: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em drew a big field of 1,580 contestants, creating a total prize pool of $2,133,000. 246 of them made their way to Day 2, nine spots away from the money. All players in the money will receive at least $2,254, but all eyes will be on the coveted gold WSOP bracelet and first place prize of $364,438, which will be awarded on Thursday night.

Kework Besiktasliyan ended the day as the runaway chip leader with 177,400, followed by Kyle Muelrath (131,500) and Parker Drew (119,300). Besiktasliyan won a massive pot during the last level of the day to claim the chip lead. Holding pocket eights, the Maltese resident saw an ace-eight-five flop appear. Besiktasliyan check-raised the flop, bet the ten on the turn and check-called a big bet on the five river. His opponent held ace-king and had to part with a large portion of his stack.

Other big stacks after Day 1 include Denny Crum (102,000), Will Molson (96,600), Kelly Minkin (94,700), Rainer Kempe (93,600), Cary Katz (88,200), and Alexandre Reard (75,500). Four-time bracelet winner Jeff Madsen (55,700) and five-time bracelet winner Jason Mercier (40,300) also made their way to Day 2, as did three-time bracelet winner Barry Greenstein (19,700). Greenstein is on his way to score his 10th cash of this WSOP, a fantastic accomplishment by the poker legend.

The day started off with a slew of familiar faces, but many of them failed to reach the second day. Bart Lybaert had one of the most brutal bustouts of the day, when his pocket queens got cracked by ten-deuce on a jack-nine-four flop. His opponent made a runner-runner flush to send the Belgian to the rail in improbable fashion.

Other notables that missed out on Day 2 include 888Poker ambassadors Sofia Lovgren, Natalie Hof, Chris Moorman and Bruno Politano, Martin Staszko, Dzmitry Urbanovich, Christopher Frank, Paul Volpe, Justin Bonomo, Matt Affleck, Men Nguyen, Pierre Neuville, Ole Schemion, Loni Harwood, Maria Ho and Ryan Riess.

Day 2 will commence at 12:00 p.m. local time on Wednesday and the blinds will start at 600 - 1,200 with a running ante of 200. The tension will be high from the start as the money bubble looms right around the corner.

It's A Wrap

KaleGozer • Ниво 10: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Chips are bagged and tagged for the night. 246 players have made their way to Day 2, nine away from the money. An extensive recap and all chip counts will follow.

Three More Hands

KaleGozer • Ниво 10: 500-1,000, 100 ante

The clock has been stopped and three more hands will be played. We are 13 players away from the money, which is unlikely to be reached.

With the day drawing to a close, Kework Besiktasliyan has a monstrous pile of chips in front of him worth around 180,000. Besiktasliyan won around 80,000 of those in a massive hand just moments ago.

The Malta resident held {8-}{8-} and saw an {A-}{8-}{5-} flop with two clubs. He check-raised a bet of 3,400 to 12,000 and got a call. On the {10-Hearts} turn, Besiktasliyan bet 23,500 and got another call.

The river brought the {5-Hearts} and Besiktasliyan check-called a bet worth 40,000. His opponent showed {A-}{K-} and had to part with a large part of his stack.

Kelly Minkin, in middle position, opened to 2,300. The player in the cutoff three-bet to 6,000. Action folded back to Minkin, who instantly called.

The flop came {j-Spades}{6-Spades}{j-Clubs}. Minkin checked. Her opponent bet 5,000, and Minkin check-called. The turn was the {5-Clubs}. Both players checked. The {k-Spades} river filled out the board, and Minkin checked once more. Her opponent bet 8,600. She quickly called.

Minkin showed {k-Hearts}{q-Clubs}, and her opponent shook his head and sent his hand to the muck.

Creative Luca Finds A Chop

Ivan Luca

A player opened to 2,200 in early position and got called in late position. Ivan Luca three-bet to 5,000 from the big blind, leaving himself with just 9,700 behind. Both players called to see a flop.

The flop was {10-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Clubs}, and Luca shoved all in. The player in early position called the shove, and the third player folded.

Ivan Luca: {7-Hearts}{4-Clubs}
Early position: {J-Hearts}{9-Hearts}

Luca's creative play didn't pay off as he found himself basically drawing dead. However, the {9-Spades} turn and {J-Diamonds} river gave the Argentinian a bizarre escape, and he chopped the pot miraculously.

Big Stacks Collide

Alexandre Reard opened to 2,300 under the gun. Kelly Minkin three-bet to 5,500 from two seats over. Action folded back to Rear, who called.

The flop was {a-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{2-Clubs}. Reard checked. Minkin bet 4,000, and Reard check-called. The turn was the {3-Spades} and was checked through to the {2-Diamonds} river. Again, both players checked.

Reard revealed {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}, and Minkin revealed {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs} to rake in the pot.
