Day 1 completed

Day 1 In the Book; Tibbles Leads, Kelly Not Far Behind

After a long 10 levels of play the 2013 World Series of Poker Event #11 $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em (Six Handed) has come to a close. Today there were 924 runners in the field. All the players are hoping they can make it to the final table and capture the first-place prize of $473,019. Also with capturing the money is the fame and glory of winning a prestigious event such as the Six handed event and a masterfully crafted gold bracelet. When the 10 levels finished our chip leader was Tammy Tibbles . She had 233,300. Steven Kelly was not to far behind with 224,000 in chips.

This event should be called the Fast and Furious 6-Max because the action was fast and the bustouts were furious. 802 were eliminated from contention today. The notables that did not make the cut were Scott Seiver, Andy Frankenberger, Daniel Negreanu, Faraz Jaka, Phil Hellmuth, Daryll Fish, and Phil Ivey. Many others were eliminated as well.

Not everyone was unlucky however. Some top notch players coasted to Day 2 such as Tuan Le (149,000), Chino Rheem (136,400), Scott Clements (122,000), Vanessa Rousso (73,500), and Chris Moorman (71,000)

Our chip leader had chips the whole day and won a chunk of them when she played a hand against John Racener. Both players saw a flop of{q-Spades}{a-Clubs}{8-Hearts}, Tibbles check called bet of 3,200 from Racener. The {10-Clubs} hit the turn, and Tibbles check called again, this time for 6,200.

The river was the {6-Clubs}, and Tibbles tanked. Eventually, she bet 15,000. Racener then tanked and put his last 30,000 in. Tibbles snap called, and tabled {k-Clubs}{j-Clubs} for the nuts. Racener let out a chuckle, showed {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for a nine high flush, and headed to the exits.

Action will continue tomorrow as the remaining 122 players will be back at 1:00 pm local time. 108 players will make the money so be sure to check into PokerNews to see who makes the money and who hits the rail on the bubble. From the Rio we say goodnight and we will see you tomorrow!

Tibbles Busts Racener, Takes Chip Lead

• Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

Tammy Tibbles has been steadily running her stack up for much of the day, and we just caught her taking a big pot to bust 2010 Main Event runner up John Racener. We caught up with the action on the flop, which read {q-Spades}{a-Clubs}{8-Hearts}, and we saw Tibbles check call a bet of 3,200 from Racener. The {10-Clubs} hit the turn, and Tibbles check called again, this time for 6,200.

The river was the {6-Clubs}, and Tibbles took her time with her decision. Eventually, she bet 15,000, and it was on Racener. We spent about 30 seconds in the tank before moving all in for his last 30,000, and Tibbles snap called, and tabled {k-Clubs}{j-Clubs} for the nuts. Racener let out a chuckle, showed {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for a nine high flush, and headed to the exits.

After that one, Tibbles is our chip leader with 230,000.

Four More

• Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

Four more hands tonight and we will bag and tag and send the players off until tomorrow.

Racener Gets the KO; Nearly Double His Stack

• Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

The action was fast in this hand. Racener raised, his opponent re-raised from the button, Racener shipped it all in, and his opponent called. His opponent was the one at risk.

Racener: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Opponent: {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}

The board ran out {9-Spades}{7-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{6-Spades}{7-Diamonds} and that eliminated Racener's opponent. John Racener has nearly doubled his stack up to 47,000.

Clements Scores Huge Double Through Moorman

• Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

Sometimes, when the best players in the world collide, it's all about who can win the coin flips. This was just the case between Scott Clements and Chris Moorman, who got into a huge battle just before the break. According to Clements, he got all his chips in the middle with {q-}{q-} preflop against the {a-}{k-} of Chris Moorman. Clements's queen's held up through the end of the board, and there was a massive swing in the chip stacks between the two players.
