After 15 levels of play, the Day 1 action of Event #47: $5,000 Freezeout (8-handed) concluded with only 82 players out of the 421 entries in total managing to find a bag to tag.

All those entries created a total prize pool of $1,941,863, guaranteeing the winner to walk away with $426,694 for first place and the coveted gold WSOP bracelet while 64 players total will be in the money on Monday for at least $8,000.

Jamie Sequeira takes the overnight chip lead with a huge bag of 1,070,000 in chips. The Canadian player counts $48,316 total live earnings in WSOP events and will continue to battle for the first gold bracelet of his career. Trailing in second place is Benjamin Chalot with 733,00, who cashed in three events so far in the series. Closing the podium for today is Daniel Rezaei with 702,000 who is looking for the 17th WSOP cash of his career.

Also in the top chip counts is no one else than Daniel Negreanu with 722,000. After two final tables recently in Event #36: Dealers Choice 6-Handed Championship and in Event #32: H.O.R.S.E, Negreanu will try to add a seventh gold bracelet to his collection.
