Out of the 1,221 entries that took to the felt in Event #73: $1,000 Double Stack No-Limit Hold'em, just 54 bagged chips at the conclusion of Day 1 play. All remaining players are guaranteed to cash for at least $3,399, but all eyes are fixed on the top prize of $199,586 and coveted gold bracelet.

Over the course of 20 half-hour levels, no player accumulated a stack even approaching that of Evan Lipshultz, who advances to Day 2 with 952,000 chips. The relative newcomer from Silver Spring, Maryland went on an incredible heater in the final levels of the day which included stacking bracelet winner Ben Keeline with a flopped flush.

Several familiar faces will return for Day 2 action at noon in the Amazon room, including previous November Niner Jake Balsiger (446,000), two-time bracelet winner Ben Yu (340,000), Leo Margets (340,000), DJ MacKinnon (321,000), and Mikhail Semin (124,000).

Not all the fan favorites who tried their luck in this event were fortunate enough to survive to the day's end. Scott Bohlman, Ankush Mandavia, Jessica Dawley, Kenny Hallaert, Loni Harwood, Anton Wigg, Scott Davies, Maria Konnikova, Ari Engel, and Brandon Shack-Harris all left empty-handed.

Jameson Painter (78th-$2,231), Roland Israelashvili (80th-$2,231), Nam Le (82nd-$1,997), Erik Seidel (83rd-$1,997), Allen Cunningham (114th-$1,675), and Jonathan Duhamel 152nd-$1,571) were just a few of the big names who all departed with consolation prizes. A total of 184 places were paid in this event and the money bubble broke without hand-for-hand play about an hour and a half after players returned from their dinner break.

Lipshultz Sends Keeline Packing

[user339870] • Niveau 20: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Evan Lipshultz just told us that he recently busted Ben Keeline in the following fashion:

Keeline opened from late position and Lipshultz defended his big blind with {6-Spades}{4-Spades}. The flop came {A-Spades}{J-Spades}{8-Spades}, Lipshultz bet, Keeline raised, and all the chips went into the middle. Keeline held {K-Spades}{9-Diamonds} for the nut-flush draw but needed help against Lipshultz's flopped flush. The turn and river were blanks and Lipshultz took the pot to stack Keeline.

Balsiger Stacks Lakhov

[user339870] • Niveau 19: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

There were about 30,000 chips in the pot and the {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} flop was out when we got to the table. Alexander Lakhov checked from the big blind, Jake Balsiger bet 12,000 from the button, and Lakhov called.

The turn brought the {7-Diamonds} and Lakhov bet 21,000. Balsiger went into the tank for a bit and called.

The {5-Clubs} hit the river and Lakhov shoved for 50,000. Balsiger called instantly and tabled {10-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}. Lakhov showed {9-Diamonds}{7-Spades} for trip sevens and made his exit.

Nam Le Eliminated

[user339870] • Niveau 19: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Nam Le raised to 13,000 from early position, a player in middle position three-bet to 50,000, Le shoved for about 80,000 total, and the three-bettor called to put Le at risk.

Nam Le: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}
Opponent: {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}

The two players were racing for the pot and Le needed to improve in order to survive. The board ran out {10-Spades}{5-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} and although Le paired his queen on the river it was too little too late since his opponent had turned a winning set of nines. Le wished the table luck and began to make his way to the payout desk.
