Niveau 10 : 400/800, 100 ante

A total of 1,330 players took to the felt in Event #37: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em, but just 236 players bagged chips at the conclusion of Day 1 play. The bubble is approaching as 200 players will leave this tournament with a cash prize. A min-cash is worth $2,249, but all eyes are on the top prize of $319,580 and coveted WSOP gold bracelet that await the winner on Wednesday, June 20.

Leading the way is Kirk Banks with 179,100, and just behind him are Michael Rocco (160,000), Duy Ho (158,500), Joe Couden (155,900), Anatoly Filatov (129,000), and Stephen Song (124,600).

Numerous notable names advanced alongside the chip leaders, including Barry Greenstein, who won a massive pot after dinner with pocket queens, which at the time put him amongst the top stacks but finished the day rather short with 11,500. Aaron Massey (97,000), previous November Niner Eoghan O'Dea (91,200), bestselling writer Maria Konnikova (88,200), and two-time bracelet winner Andy Frankenberger (80,300) will also return for Day 2 action at noon local time on Tuesday.

Not all of the fan favorites who tried their luck in this event survived to the day's end. Greg Merson, Michael Gathy, Chris Moorman, Jessica Dawley, Ankush Mandavia, and Dutch Boyd were some of those that were among the fallen.

Cards will be back in the air at noon on Tuesday, June 19. The plan for Day 2 is to play 10 levels on Day 2, then play down to a winner on Day 3.

Frankenberger Calls and Wins

Niveau 10 : 400/800, 100 ante

There were about 4,000 chips in the middle and the board read {Q-Spades}{8-Spades}{4-Clubs} when we got to the table. The big blind checked, Andy Frankenberger bet 1,600 from the button, and the big blind called.

The {5-Spades} fell on the turn and both players checked.

The {4-Spades} hit the river and the big blind bet 3,600, sending Frankenberger into the tank for about 20 seconds. He ultimately called, the big blind showed {J-Clubs}{10-Hearts}, and Frankenberger tabled {7-Spades}{5-Clubs} to take the pot with a small flush.
