Level 11: 600/1,200 with a 1,200 ante
Day 1A Entries: 287

Victor Figueroa

Former RRPO champ Victor Figueroa is one of our players moving his stack north as the day moves on. In a recent hand, the board was out and reading Td4c4hTsAd. His opponent bet 12,500 and Figueroa raised to 61,000. That amount was most of Figueroa’s stack with only 3,000 worth of black chips behind.

After a couple of minutes to think it through, his opponent called and Figueroa tabled AcTc for a full house, tens full of aces, and he stacked up more chips.

Victor Figueroa – 145,500 (121 bb)

Main Event: Allen Kessler Eliminated by Jose Reyes

Allen Kessler

Jose Reyes opened to 2,500 from middle position and picked up a caller in the cutoff. Allen “Chainsaw” Kessler moved all in for 11,100 and Reyes put in a big stack of 5K chips to get heads up.

Reyes: 8c8s
Kessler: AsKh

Kessler needed to catch to stay in the game but blanked the 7s6s5h flop. Reyes picked up an open-ended straight draw that got there on the 4d river to leave Kessler drawing dead to the Ah river.

Jose Reyes – 80,000 (80 bb)

James Calderaro, WSOP and WPT champ, was a late entrant

Day 1A is midway through Level 9 which means it’s time to start making dinner plans. Once the clock runs out, remaining players will enjoy a one-hour dinner break to partake of the various food options around the property.

James Calderaro jumped into the Main Event before the break and one of the more accomplished players in the field. He has two parts of a potential triple crown; a WSOP bracelet from the 2017 WSOP PLO High Roller and a WPT title from the 2014 WPT Hollywood Lucky Hearts Poker Open Championship.

The Day 1A entry count jumped over 250 during the previous level and it’s turning out to be a great start to the Main Event. This is a good pace to hit the $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool tomorrow afternoon and then spin it up.

Neil Blumenfield is enjoying his start to the WSOP Circuit Main Event. The popular local is up to 147,000 at the midpoint of the day and cruising with a fun table. Blumenfield, the former November Niner, has one cash this series so far when he made the last four tables of the Monster Stack.

Curtis Daye

(Coconut Creek, FL) — Custis Daye never played in a World Series of Poker Circuit event until yesterday. He bought into the $3,250 High Roller tournament, the biggest buy-in on the schedule, and outlasted some of the toughest opponents in the game to win the first WSOPC event he entered.

Dayes was one of 70 entries in this year’s $100,000 High Roller and the tournament more than doubled the guaranteed prize pool. He showed no fear and was at or near the top of the counts throughout Day 1 when he came into Day 2 in third place of the 19 remaining players.

Registration was open until the start of Day 2 and we had five players join late. The field quickly played down to its final table where action slowed as the money approached with seven getting some money.

Former SHRPO PLO champ Corey Burbick was eliminated in eighth place on burst the bubble. The talented group of players remaining included Phil Hui, Jonathan Kramer, Tony Utnage, Chad Eveslage, and defending High Roller champion Dominique Mosley.

Each hit the payout desk until Daye was heads-up with Hui. This was a chance for Hui to earn his fifth WSOPC ring but the match did not last long. Daye had a big chip lead and Hui was at risk on the first hand, when Daye hit a two-out river to end the High Roller right there.

Daye was happy and excited about winning such a big tournament. He was all smiles as he accepted the congratulations from those in The Pavilion. The Jamaican transplant took home $73,400 for his first WSOPC experience and a ring that might never leave his finger.

High Roller results:

1st: Curtis Daye – $73,400 + WSOP Circuit ring
2nd: Phil Hui – $45,421
3rd: Jonathan Kramer – $30,116
4th: Dominique Mosley – $21,319
5th: Tony Utnage – $16,050
6th: Chad Eveslage – $12,804
7th: Sam Ganzfried – $10,790

Curtis Daye

The heads-up battle between Curtis Daye and Phil Hui began with Daye holding a big lead. And the match lasted exactly one hand.

Seat 3: Curtis Daye – 2,425,000 (121 bb)
Seat 4: Phil Hui – 375,000 (19 bb)

Hui three-bet shipped his 355,000 stack after the first hand was dealt and Daye quickly called.

Daye: AhJh
Hui: AsQc

Hui was in great shape to double back into contention and stayed ahead after both paired the QdJc5s flop. The 8c turn was harmless and Hui had two river outs to fade. Unfortunately for the four-time WSOP Circuit winner, the Js river was one of them to settle the High Roller.

Hui took home $45,421 for his two days of grinding while Daye earned $73,400 in the first WSOP Circuit event he played.

1st: Curtis Daye – $73,400 + WSOP Circuit ring

Kramer: Ah9c

Daye was good with trip jacks and send Kramer out in third place.

Mosley: 5h5d
Kramer: AcKs

Mosley was in the lead for the double but Kramer moved out front on the KcQs3h flop. Neither the 2s turn nor the 6c river could save Mosley and our defending champ was eliminated in fourth place.

Jonathan Kramer – 1,100,000 (69 bb)
Dominique Mosley – Eliminated in 4th Place ($21,319)
