It was a case of blink and you’ll miss them as players turned out for Day 1 of Event #65: No-Limit Hold’em (30 minute levels). After 20 levels of play, only 27 of the starting 1,413 remain in contention for the title.

Dylan Linde leads the way with over 100 starting stacks in this turbo format, and he is joined by Anton Bertilsson (432,000), Toro Istvan (413,000) and Aaron Hirst (459,000), amongst others who bagged above average stacks.

Some of the early players in their seats were Kenny Hallaert, Barry Greenstein, Jonathan Little, Jared Hamby, Cate Hall, Ismael Bojang, Rocco Palumbo, Fabrice Soulier, 2004 Main Event winner Greg Raymer, 2017 bracelet-winner Mohsin Charania and many more.

The event is scheduled for two days, and the money bubble burst shortly before players went on their dinner break. Some of the players to narrowly miss out on a $1,503 min-cash included Josh Beckley, Tony Cousineau, Ari Engel, Chris Ferguson and Bernard Lee.

The money bubble burst when two players, including Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, bust on separate tables. Grospellier’s bust was the uglier of the two; getting Kings in against Aces. There was a king on the flop, but also an Ace, and Grospellier had to settle with a min-cash, albeit half of one.

Players who cashed for the minimum $1,503 included Andrew Barber (200th), Scott Davies (199th), Natasha Mercier (198th) and Antoine Saout (186th).

The jump to $1,573 saw the likes of Jean Montury (165th), 888poker Ambassador Bruno Politano (163rd), William Kassouf (161st) and Mike Leah (158th) exit the tournament.

As the day drew on there was no let up in the bust outs, with Maxim Lykov (86th) and Tobias Peters (87th) busting, and Nacho Barbero exiting in 72nd ($2,821).

By the end of the night, players were redrawing around three tables and will return with just 27 players remaining.

Play resumes on Wednesday, 5th July at 12 p.m. local time. Keep it right here on PokerNews for live updates from the field.

Aaron Hirst Doubles Up

Niveau 20 : 5,000/10,000, 1,000 ante

The player in the hijack raised to 17,000, Aaron Hirst, in the cutoff, shoved all in. Neil Willerson, on the button, also shoved all in. The big blind took some time to think but decided to fold in the end. Action was back to the player in the hijack. He decided to fold too.

Neil Willerson: {K-Hearts}{K-Spades}
Aaron Hirst: {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}

The player in the hijack claimed he had folded jacks. The player in the big blind said he folded sixes.

The board ran out {K-Clubs}{A-Spades}{9-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} - not enough help for Willerson and he was left with 29,000.
