Octo-Niner Among Leaders After Day 1

Day 1 of Event #10: $1,500 Limit Hold'em is in the books, and among the leaders of the 177 remaining players are Miguel Proulx, Chiduziem Obi, William James, and Octo-Niner Steve Gee. Gee, who finished ninth in the 2012 World Series of Poker, won a bracelet in 2010, besting a field of 3,042 runners. Proulx also won a bracelet in 2010, taking down a $2,500 Pot-Limit Omaha event for $315,311.

Event #10 attracted a total of 645 players, generating a prize pool of $870,750. The top 72 players are guaranteed $2,455, every player at the final table will take home at least $14,585, and the winner will bank $191,605 along with the gold bracelet. There will plenty of notable grinders in the field, including Jason Mercier, John Racener, Randy Lew, Michael "Squeaky" Winnett, Scott Seiver, Justin Bonomo, Carlos Mortensen, Rep Porter, Jeremy Ausmus, Matt Glantz, Phil Hellmuth and Barry Greenstein. Unfortunately for all of the players mentioned above, they were unable to survive the day.

Many of the big names registered late - some because the basketball game was on, others because they were deep in other tournaments - and Phil Ivey was the very last player to take his seat. Despite making a hero call in the last level of the day, he was unable to get anything going and bagged just 3,900 chips. Daniel Negreanu was also one of the players who registered very late, and he too took a hit during the last level of play when he ran kings into aces, but bounced back. Kid Poker ended up bagging 16,000 which will be 13 big bets to start Day 2.

Todd Witteles had a roller coaster day which saw him peak as high as 24,000 chips and drop down as low as 2,400. He was also involved in the craziest hand of the day, where he eliminated three opponents including NBA forward Earl Barron. Witteles flopped a flush draw against two sets and a gut-shot straight draw, and made his flush on the river to score a rare triple knockout.

The Day 1 survivors will return tomorrow at 2 p.m. local time, and play until they reach a final table or they complete 10 levels. We're wagering that it will be the latter, and we hope you return for all of our up-to-the-minute updates straight from the tournament floor.

Until then, goodnight from Las Vegas!
