Sixty Return Tomorrow For Day 2 of Event #9: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

[user217945] • Level 9: 800-1,600, 200 ante
Dario Minieri
Dario Minieri

Today was full of sicko tables and lots of action here in Event #9: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em. There were 477 players spread out among the Brasilia room, each trying to win their table. At the end of the day there were 60 players left, all of whom return tomorrow.

Action was fast and furious all day and we saw plenty of big names rise and fall. Some of the big names that will return tomorrow include Chris Klodnicki, Cherish Andrews, Victor Ramdin, Nick Binger, Matt Salsberg, Antonio Esfandiari and Bradon Cantu. Even though plenty of big name pros made it through the day, there were plenty of others who hit the rail, including three of the biggest names in poker: Phil Hellmuth, Phil Ivey, and Daniel Negreanu.

Arguably the strongest table today seated Jason Mercier, Dario Minieri, Tony Gargano, Kevin Saul, Darren Elias, Jason Somerville and Matt Berkey together. It was Dario Minieri who came out on top of that one though. In an interview with PokerNews.com today, Minieri discussed some strategy for the No-Limit Hold'em Shootout Format. Minieri was able to close out his table when Kevin Saul held {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} against his {k-Spades}{8-Diamonds}. Saul was ahead with his jacks, but the flop changed his fortunes, coming {3-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} and giving Minieri a pair of kings. The rest of the board ran out {q-Clubs}{10-Spades}, giving Saul no help.

Tomorrow at 1 p.m. local time we will return with the final 60 players split up into 10 tables of six players each. Those 10 winners will return on Day 3 to play down to a winner at the final table. PokerNews.com will be here for all the action on day 2 of Event #9 so make sure to tune in for updates all day.

Udoff Advances

[user217945] • Level 9: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Our last winner of the day was Ezra Udoff. His {A-Hearts}{9-Hearts} held up against Jim Grogan on a board of {2-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{4-Spades}{2-Spades} and he was awarded with a spot in tomorrow's final 60 players.

Luck Be a Lady for Udoff

• Level 9: 800-1,600, 200 ante

At the last table remaining, Jim Grogan and Ezra Udoff got their chips in the middle pre-flop. Udoff held {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds}, but Grogan had him dominated with {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}. The flop changed matters dramatically, though. It fell {9-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}, giving Udoff a pair of queens and the lead. The rest of board ran out {5-Spades}{7-Clubs}, and Udoff doubled up.
