Three Flights Booked; Last One Sunday
 

Chris McClung

Well, that's three starting days of the Main Event down, one to go.

This Day 1c is in the books after five levels, a relatively easy day as far as the Series is concerned. Our Day 1a (897) and Day 1b (985) fields tallied up to 1,882, and that overall number was more than doubled today. An impressive 2,181 players chose this day as their starting day, a much bigger turnout than many of the players and media were guessing. After three days, 4,056 players have put up the $10,000 required to play, and we're going to have another full house of players tomorrow. Reaching the 6,000 mark is a lock (in fact, we're told that many are already registered), and hitting that magical 7,000 number is within the realm of possibility, at least. Unlikely, but possible.

We had Chris McClung as our chip leader with 162,375 at night's end, but there are some murmurs that Kevin Song bagged up 163,325. We can't confirm the latter for sure, but we can tell you that both men still trail the 209,500 chips that Day 1a that big stack Fred Berger bagged up a couple nights ago.

One of the greatest features of the Main Event is that it brings together a far-reaching group of players, some of whom are much better known away from the felt. The WSOP welcomed a champion from the hardwood today as Paul Pierce of the Boston Celtics came out with guns blazing. It took just a couple levels for him to climb close to 100,000 and near the top of our counts, but a late-day cool-off set him back to a still-quite-healthy 63,750 at night's end. Also in the field was Australian cricketing legend Shane Warne, former Olympic boxer Audley Harrison, the TV funnyman duo of Brad Garrett and Ray Romano, Hungarian model Krisztina Polgar, and a 91-year-old woman, Ms. Ellen Deeb. Of that list, only Brad Garrett and Audley Harrison survived long enough to bag up chips.

2011 bracelet winners go at the top of the list of notables, and we had several of them in this third flight, too. Allen Bari, Jason Somerville, and Fabrice Soulier all came and went very quickly, though, all coming up several thousand places short in their bids to snag another bracelet for the other arm this summer.

Former Main Event champions? We had a whole gaggle of them! Seven, in fact. Chris Moneymaker got a special introduction over the speaker system as he sat down to play, but he was run out of the room within the first levels when he got his money in with pocket threes against pocket tens on a jack-ten-nine flop. That was all she wrote, and Moneymaker is still looking for his first Main Event cash since he won the thing eight years ago. The other WSOP kings joining the field all survived including Bobby Baldwin (27,500), Scotty Nguyen (48,325), Dan Harrington (42,300), Joe Cada (58,225), Jonathan Duhamel (41,150), and the Brat himself (and Player of the Year leader), Phil Hellmuth. The antics of Hellmuth's entry were tuned down a bit this year, but he still made quite a scene in the corridor as he walked through with cameras leading and a crowd of fans trailing. It was mostly a bad day for Hellmuth, though, and he could only save 11,800 chips to come back to on Day 2. There's good news for Hellmuth on Day 2, though. He's drawn Table 99 (lucky for Hellmuth) Seat 7 (lucky for everyone!).

Other notable survivors today include Daniel "jungleman12" Cates, Adam Junglen, Ted Forrest, Humberto Brenes, Mark Newhouse (who was near the top of the chip counts most of the day), and the 2002 Scripps National Spelling Bee champion, Praytush Buddiga. Big stacks? Junglen is one of them with 127,025 chips, and he's in the mix with Giuseppe Zarbo (159,400), Daniel Skolovys (151,475), Don Nguyen (136,000), and Sean Picquelle (120,275).

All of those guys (and about 1,300 others) should consider themselves both lucky and skilled to have successfully navigated through the minefield that is Day 1 of the Main Event. Well, lucky, at least. The lucky survivors will play Day 2a on Tuesday at high noon.

That's just about all we have for tonight from the Rio. Tomorrow, we'll get another couple thousand grinders in here to fill out the field, and it's always an exciting time when that first-place prize is announced to the masses. We'll be among those masses on Sunday, and we hope you'll join us back here as we finalize this Main Event field and begin to build the excitement through the play-down days and onward to the final table.

For now we will leave you with Lynn Gilmartin's video update, and until tomorrow, then, all that's left is goodnight!

Double for Lee Before Night's End
 

Bernard Lee

An unknown player raised to 1,100 and was called by another unknown player. Bernard Lee then shipped his stack of 7,300 in the pot. The original raiser folded while the other player made the call.

Showdown
Lee:
Opponent:

Lee was ahead, but not after the flop came down . While his opponent flopped two pair to take the lead, Lee still had outs. As fate would have it, the turn was one of them. Lee had hit a bigger two pair to reclaim the lead. The river changed nothing and Lee doubled to 16,500.

End-of-Night River Queen Hurts Johnson, Helps Gulyy
 

One last bit of end-of-night drama to report, this one a big hand involving Mike Johnson and Yury Gulyy. (In fact, this one happened at super-big-stack Chris McClung's table, though he wasn't involved.) We came upon this one on the river, but full details were related to us shortly afterward.

Back-and-forthing before the flop ended with Gulyy four-betting and Johnson calling. The flop came , and Gulyy continued with a bet of 8,000. Johnson raised to 17,000, then Gulyy appeared as though he desired to reraise again, but had only put out the calling chips and reached back, and so a call it was. The turn then brought the , at which point Gulyy shoved his remaining 30,000 or so and Johnson quickly called.

Gulyy tabled the and Johnson the . There was about 110,000 in the middle, chips that appeared likely headed Johnson's way. But then came the river -- the ! Gulyy had hit his two-outer, and ends the day with that large stack.

"Oh, I couldn't have played it any better!" said Johnson afterwards, noting that he'd likely have been among the Day 1c chip leaders had he avoided that river queen. Instead he bags up a little over 39,000.

Three More Hands
 

With ten minutes left on the tournament clocks it has been announced that each table will play three more hands before they bag and tag for the night.

Picquelle Makes a Century
 

The action throughout the last level here in the Blue Section of the Amazon Room has been incredibly tight, but finally, we have found our first century stack!

His name is Sean Picquelle, he's over on table 278, AND ... he's got more than 115,000 in chips. Huzzah!

Turner Takes One
 

Jon Turner

After a flop of a player in early position checked and Jon Turner bet 1,125. The other player called and they saw the come on the turn. The first player to act decided to again check-call a bet from Turner, this time for 2,625. When the came on the river the first player checked a third time and Turner tossed out a substantial bet of 8,650. The other player went into the tank for a couple of minutes, nearly chuckling and shaking his head.

He eventually said "show me a bluff" as he tossed his cards into the muck. Turner tossed his cards into the muck and scooped up the pot as another player added "he's so sick." Sick or not, Turner had around 70,000 after the hand was over.

Cada Mumbles At a Hard Decision
 

A befuddled Joe Cada.

Danny Chamberlain opened for 1,050 in late position and Joe Cada called from the button. The blinds released and the flop came . Chamberlain led out for 2,250 and Cada called. The turn came , Chamberlain checked and Cada bet 2,250. Chamberlain called and the flop came . Chamberlain checked, Cada bet 4,500 and Chamberlain check-raised to 13,500.

Cada was befuddled by the check-raise and went into the tank. He counted his stack, twice, counted out a call and then restacked his chips by denomination. He then was mumbling to himself and rechecked his cards. Cada held his cards up high and then slowly folded, seemingly unsure if his decision was correct.

Cada slipped a little down to 54,000 and Chamberlain is around 90,000.

Good Bye Mr. Rodman
 

We didn't catch the hand, but it appears Blair Rodman has been eliminated from the tournament. Rodman had been nursing a short stack throughout the past couple levels, and now his seat is vacant and void of chip. Our deductive reasoning tells us his 2011 WSOP has come to an end.

Cocktails Table #48!
 

Theo Tran - Finding Ways to Turn That Frown Upside Down

The players at Table #48, where Theo Tran is sitting, certainly seem to be enjoying the last level of play. Almost every player at the table including Tran has a beer in front of them and they just summoned over a cocktail server to bring a round of shots for the table as well.

As they were waiting for the shots to arrive they were discussing how many players at the table are "professionals." When they asked the player in the nine-seat he said, "Well I don't have a job, but I don't make a living off poker either" which elicited laughter from his tablemates. We don't recognize anyone other than Tran at the table, which might explain how his stack has gone from 1,500 chips to 46,000 over the course of a few hours.

Here He Comes!
 

Jonathan Duhamel

With about 4,000 in the pot and a board reading , the small blind bet 2,200 and defending champion Jonathan Duhamel made the call from the cutoff. When the peeled off on the river, the small blind bet 4,000 and Duhamel quickly called, revealing for a flopped straight.

We didn't catch the small blind's cards, but we do know that Duhamel took down the pot and is now up to 40,000 . . . not too shabby for a man who was recently under 15,000.

Mizzi Misstep
 

Sorel Mizzi

With the board showing and about 20,000 in the middle, it checked to Sorel Mizzi who fired a bet of 12,000. His lone opponent went into the tank for about a minute, then finally made the call.

Mizzi paused, and his opponent showed for trip nines, at the sight of which Mizzi mucked his cards. "I had to think," said the victor, and Mizzi nodded, acknowledging that he'd thought well.

Mizzi slips a bit but still has about 56,000 with a half-hour left to go tonight.

Mr. Cates Has to Show
 

Daniel Cates Couldn't Get His Flush Draw to Hit

We caught the action on the turn of a board. Daniel Cates was facing an all in of 12,025 from his opponent with a pre-turn pot of about 6,000.

Eventually Cates made the call and his opponent tabled . The table waited for Cates to show his hand for about six of seven seconds before the dealer finally asked him to reveal his holdings.

"I have to show?" asked Cates. He reluctantly placed down the which allowed the dealer to put down the as the river. His opponent's set of sevens held up against the flush draw and he is now down to 34,000.

Hellmuth Hangs On
 

The secondary feature table was broken shortly after the start of Level 5 -- thus ending the ongoing convo between Phil Hellmuth and Mark Newhouse -- and a short-stacked Hellmuth was moved to a new table over in the Blue section. He continued to nurse his short stack for the next hour, but just now found himself putting at least some of those chips at risk.

The player on the button opened with a raise to 1,100, and Hellmuth -- sitting in the small blind -- called the raise, leaving himself but 5,700 behind. The big blind folded, and the flop came . Both players checked. The turn was the , prompting a bet of 1,350 from Hellmuth. His opponent hemmed and hawed, finally exhaling "I can't do it!" before letting his hand go.

Hellmuth flashed his cards toward his opponent on his right -- it appeared to be a middle pair (e.g., ) -- and declared "everyone else on the planet would have moved in there." Hellmuth didn't, though, and came away from the hand with a few more chips. He's still super short, however, with a little over 8,000.

Sowers Takes From Sarwer
 

With the board reading , we saw Jeff Sarwer check-call 3,000 from Mike Sowers. The fell on the river and again Sarwer checked. Sowers bet 7,500 and after a few moments, was called by Sarwer.

Sowers tabled for two pair, besting Sarwer's holdings.

The river brought the . This time Iacofano's opponent bet 3,000, and after a bit of thought Iacofano let his hand go.

Despite that small hit, Iacofano still has much to show for his work during four-and-a-half levels today. He has about 84,000 now.

He's Mad I Tell You... Mad!
 

Mike Caro - "The Mad Genius"

We've walked by Mike "The Mad Genius" Caro's table here in the Pavilion room countless times today but had yet to catch him involved in a hand until just recently.

A player in middle position raised to 1,200 and Caro re-raised to 3,200 from the hijack. Action folded back around to the original raiser who tossed in a call.

The flop came and both players checked. When the fell on the turn the first player bet out 3,000 and Caro thought for a bit before calling. The river brought the and the first player checked it over to Caro who went into the tank. Caro carefully studied his opponent, no doubt looking for a tell of some kind, and played with his orange T5000 chips looking like he wanted to toss one out as a bet.

He eventually decided to check and flipped up his which prompted the other player to muck his hand. After a bit of banter between the two, the other player admitted he held ace-jack which seemed to surprise Caro a bit.

Caro has been maintaining a decent stack on Day 1 and after the hand was up to 51,000.
