Day 1c of Event #4: $500 The Reunion No-Limit Hold'em has concluded. The third flight drew a field of 5,871 entries, which made it the biggest of the three available flights by far. The bargain tournament of the in-person festival at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino came with an ambitious $5,000,000 guarantee, which it exceeded thanks to the strong turnout in the final flight.

In total, 12,975 entries generated a prize pool of $5,449,500 and some of that was already distributed to the players in the money across the three flights. Some 286 players from Day 1c advanced to Day 2 on Monday, October 4th at 10 a.m. local time, where they will join the 333 survivors from Day 1a and Day 1b.

Mike Takayama is among one of the chip leaders for Day 1c. He bagged a stack of 4,575,000 chips in the Brasilia room where he won a bracelet in 2018. Takayama came out on top of a field 2,065 entries in Event #59: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Super Turbo Bounty; he became the first player from the Philippines to win a World Series of Poker bracelet.

Day 2 Seat Draw (Tables #449-#499)

Day 2 Seat Draw (Tables #500-#519)

The top 881 players finished in the money on Day 1c taking home at least $801. More than 500 players cashed but failed to continue onto Day 2. Notables who made the money included Andrew Moreno, PokerNews reporter Lou Bohringer, Maria Konnikova, Shannon Shorr, Barry Shulman, Robert Mather, and Jon Pardy.

The start of Day 2 begins at 10am local time in the Amazon room. They will play 17 levels of 40 minutes each or down to five players whichever is later. Blinds will recommence at 30,000/60,000 with the big blind ante of 60,000.

Day 1c Completed

Niveau 22 : 25,000/50,000, 50,000 ante

Around 300 players remained upon completion of the last hands of the night. Assorted chip counts and a recap of today's action are to follow.

Late Surges by Takayama and Fernandez Alonso

Niveau 22 : 25,000/50,000, 50,000 ante

In a four-way limped pot the flop came {9-Clubs}{4-Spades}{4-Clubs} and the action checked to Joseph Cheong in the cutoff. He bet 75,000 and forced folds from all his three opponents to claim the pot.

Another notable name of the international circuit to chip up late on Day 1c was Javier Fernandez Alonso. He called the shove of a short stack with {j-Spades}{10-Spades} and faced the {a-Clubs}{2-Spades} of the short stack. The board ran out {10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{7-Spades} and the ten on the flop propelled the Spaniard into the lead to deal the final blow.

Wesemann Scores a Late Double

Niveau 22 : 25,000/50,000, 50,000 ante

Jason Wesemann jammed from under the gun and received one call while the rest of the table folded.

Wesemann's {a-Hearts}{a-Spades} had a commanding lead over his opponent's {9-Hearts}{9-Spades} and there was no threat at all on the {j-Spades}{5-Spades}{5-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{k-Spades} runout. Both stacks were counted and they had 470,000 each to reduce the field by one and award a full double to Wesemann.

"Now I am back to where I was before," he mentioned in table chat with a grin on the face.
