With the Day 1 of the Tournament of Champions at the 2023 World Series of Poker reaching its completion after ten 60-minute levels of play, with Roger Franco bagging the all-important chip lead heading into Day 2.

The road to victory for any player won't be easy as they must navigate the remaining field of 243, who all have their eyes on the bracelet. Many names to look out for still remain in the field, including multi-time bracelet winners Jeff Madsen and Frankie O’Dell,

The freeroll created exclusively for bracelet and Circuit ring winners alike did not disappoint as 727 entrants turned up to claim their share of the $1,000,000 prize pool, up 263 entries from last year.

Poker legend and beloved sports commentator Lon McEachern also bagged and tagged a stack for tomorrow’s session. McEachern qualified for the event by winning the $400 No Limit Hold'em Seniors Ring Event in the WSOPC in Northern California at the start of the year. McEachern is taking through an above-average stack of 133,000 chips.

Also still in the field is Jeremy Ausmus, who is not only looking to add to his already astounding $14.7 million in live earnings but an addition to his trophy cabinet that already contains four WSOP bracelets.

Throughout today’s play, many notable names unfortunately hit the rail including five-time bracelet winner Shaun Deeb, Jeff Platt, Nick Schulman and defending champion Benjamin Kaupp.

Day 2 commences June 1 at 12 p.m. PST and will be in the Horseshoe’s Gold section. Day 2 will resume on Level 11, with the blinds at 1,000/2,000 and a 2,000 big blind ante. Late registration is still open until play gets underway, with the money bubble expected to burst in the late afternoon.

As always, keep it locked in with PokerNews to find out the conclusion of this exciting event.

Castillo Defends and Gets The Pure Double

Jose Castillo
Jose Castillo

Late position opened to 3,200 at 800/1,600/1,600 blinds. The button called and Jose Castillo defended his big blind.

The flop comes 235 and the action checked to the button who puts out a wager of 6,000.

Castillo took a moment before cutting out raising chips and putting out 15,500.

The pre-flop raiser got out of the way and action was back on the button who didn't waste too much time before announcing "all in".

Castillo snap called and saw the good news as the button tabled 33 while he rolled over his flopped straight with A4

The board ran out an 8 and the river 6 didn't pair the board giving Castillo a full double less than one hour before players bag for Day 2.

Yin Scores a Late Knock-Out in the Final Level of the Day

Niveau 10 : Blinds 1,000/1,500, 1,500 ante

Yuzhou Yin in middle position raised to 3,200 finding one caller on the button. The short-stacked small blind shoved all in for the remainder of their stack prompting Yin to isolate the raise with a small four-bet. With the button out the way, the cards went on their backs.

Small Blind: K10
Yuzhou Yin: Qx10x

The board ran out 10Q646 providing the much-needed queen for Yin to score this knock-out.
