That's the Closing Bell!
 
Ok! We've reached the end of the third of our 2009 World Series of Poker Day 1 flights. Day 1c saw the biggest field so far, with 1,696 players descending on the Amazon and Brasilia Rooms at the Rio Convention Center, with 1,106 surviving the day. Tucked among those 1,696 were some of the biggest names in the poker world: Hellmuth. Negreanu. Duke. Lederer. We had a change in scheduling today. In order to accomodate the sure-to-be larger Day 2b field, the tournament staff elected to play five levels to try to get the field down to a manageable size. That Day 2b field will play four levels on Wednesday in order to sync themselves with the Day 2a field (which will play five levels). With one extra level of play, we saw some slightly larger end-of-day chip stacks today than we did the last two days. The player that we believe leads all Day 1c runners is Joe Cada with about 187,000 chips, but there are several other people all within striking distance of that total. One name lurking at 145,000 chips is a man who already has three gold bracelets this summer -- Jeff Lisandro. We'll be keeping a very close eye on his stack over the next several days to see what kind of a run he can make at poker history. Tomorrow, the last of the hopefuls will kick off Day 1d play at noon local time. We have heard unsubstantiated reports that already more than 2,400 players have registered for Day 1d. That number is sure to climb overnight and into the early hours of the morning. The tournament staff may be faced with the unenviable problem of having to cut off registrations due to simple space limitations. Be sure to join us again tomorrow at noon for Day 1d!

Hellmuth Slips, Buddy
 
Before the flop, Phil Hellmuth raised to 1,200 from the cutoff seat. The small blind made the call, heads up to the flop. It showed up . The small blind checked and called a bet of 1,350 from Hellmuth, and the turn came the . After another check, Hellmuth fired a second bullet, 2,200 this time, and his opponent called once again. The river card was the , and this time the small blind led out with a healthy bet of 8,500. Hellmuth snap-mucked and started talking. It was difficult to make out his exact words, but the word "buddy" was in there more than a few times. The jist of the conversation was Phil saying, "I promise I'll have the chance to bust you." A spectator on the rail told Phil that there were only a few minutes left in the day. Phil replied with something to the effect of, "It doesn't matter. He's on a mission to have me bust him." ***** Just a few hands later, Hellmuth again opened the pot for 1,200, and again his 'buddy' called from the cutoff seat. The flop ran down , and Hellmuth led out with a bet of 1,800. His opponent raised to 5,300, and Hellmuth hemmed and hawed and called. The turn card came the , and Hellmuth passed the bet. His opponent made it 5,600, and Hellmuth put in the call. Both players checked the on the river. Hellmuth showed down for the flopped straight. But alas, his opponent had run down the four-flush with , sending Hellmuth spinning off into one of his world-famous tirades. He's back down around 25,000 just as play wraps up.

Recognizing Kent Senter
 
We told you earlier about the story of Kent Senter, the man who was recently diagnosed with a rare illness and is with us today to fulfill his lifelong dream of playing in the Main Event. Media Director Nolan Dalla just took a quick pause to recognize Senter and present him to the room. Senter looks like he's headed for Day 2, and his introduction drew the largest applause that we've seen so far in this event as the entire room stood and cheered enthusiastically to lend their support to Senter and his lovely wife who is with us as well. Many times it's issues away from the felt that remind people what a true and special occasion the WSOP is. Everyone's rooting for you, Kent.

A Long, Painful Decision for Lieu
 
On a board of , Liz Lieu bet out for 2,600 after her opponent checked. He went into the tank for nearly a minute before min-raising Lieu to 5,200. That move put the decision on Lieu, and she took more than a minute before three betting for an additional 6,000. More than another minute passed before her opponent came over the top again, moving his last 17,300 into the middle. Calling would cost Lieu most of her stack and she again went into the tank, taking another two minutes before finally mucking her hand. She's left with about 19,000.

Thaler Must Show First
 
On a board of , Gabe Thaler fired 2,500 into his opponent from the position of the small blind. The other player was acting out of the big blind and made the call. After the river came the , Thaler began playing with his chips for a minute or two. He then tapped the table for a check. His opponent checked behind after a moment of hesitation. "Queen high." announced Thaler, but didn't flip over his hand. His opponent nodded his head and waited for Thaler to turn up his hand. Thaler then turned up for exactly what he said, queen high. The opponent waited to see this and then rolled over his hand, for a pair a sixes and the winning hand.

Big Stacks Emerging
 
Five levels of play instead of four tonight have led to some larger end-of-night stacks than we've seen over the last two days. Here are a few of the players pulling away from the pack as the evening comes to a close: Tyler Patterson 165,000 Igor 'Jr Parlay' Borukhov 150,000 Ariel 'DaEvils' Schneller 146,000 Jeff Lisandro 145,000 Marc Naalden 135,000 Chance Kornuth 125,000 Jamie Roberts 120,000

Chop, Chop
 
The end result of a pot between Scotty Nguyen and the player to his right wasn't that exciting, but the hand itself was interesting enough. With the board showing and sitting in the small blind, Nguyen check-raised the button player's flop bet, adding 6,000 chips on top. The button called. The turn filled a potential draw. Nguyen, undeterred, bet another 12,000. Again the button called. The river fell to put a straight on board. Nguyen put 20,000 chips in the middle. His opponent wasn't happy about that bet. "You got some of that?" Nguyen asked, pointing at the board. "I've got a straight on the board," his opponent replied. "Ok, I call. You got a nine?" "No, baby, chop it up." Nguyen showed down and the button showed . It was indeed a chop. "Why you gotta bluff me like that?" the button asked as Nguyen laughed and took another sip from his Michelob Ultra.

Bye Bye, Bari
 
In a heads-up battle, the two blinds saw a flop of in a raised pot. After those first three cards hit the board, both players ended up all in. Allen Bari was in the big blind with . The small blind had Bari slightly covered and totally dominated with . The turn was a useless , and the on the river was no help to Bari either. After working a medium to low stack all day, he's out.

The Word from Brasilia
 
Tables are slowly breaking over here in Brasilia. About every 10-15 minutes another table breaks and the players are relocated to another part of the room. A lot of times last year, the players would break from a table only to be moved over to the Amazon room. The staff this year has kept the players in Brasilia with the plan to move them over once all the tables get broken down here. A few tables were moved to the Amazon room early on, but that has since stopped. It's somewhat like there's two separate tournaments going on. While we've lost the likes of Liv Boeree, Brandon Cantu, and David "Chino" Rheem throughout the day, Jean-Robert Bellande, Steve Topakas, Gabe Thaler, Jeff Tims, and Alex "Assassinato" Fitzgerald are still going strong. Jamie Roberts and Igor "Jr Parlay" Borukhov have emerged as two of the biggest stacks in the room. Borukhov looks to be the chip leader of the entire event right now with slightly over 150,000 chips. If you remember back to the WSOP Circuit event at Caesars Atlantic City, Borukhov stormed to the chip lead early in that event as well, only to barely eek into the money.

Igor Borukhov Crushing
 
After some preflop action, Igor "Jr Parlay" Borukhov bet 2,000 with the board reading with two hearts. According to Borukhov, his opponent and him got in a raising war that found the shorter player all in. Borukhov held for top pair, top kicker, but his opponent was looking at a hefty amount of outs with the for the nut flush draw. The turn and river both blanked, allowing the pot to be passed to Borukhov, who now has amassed himself 150,000 chips.

Griffin Granted Stay of Execution
 
Gavin Griffin's chip stack has slowly but steadily dwindled over the course of the day. Down to 12,700 chips, he found himself all in with and called by a player who tabled . Following standard Main Event protocol, the dealer called out "All in and call on Orange 82!" A floor came over to the table and held up play while an ESPN camera got itself into position to film the action. "Can we just get it over with?" asked an irritated Griffin. "What the ****." The dealer was finally instructed to run out the board. That board came to give Griffin the rivered gutshot Broadway straight and the double-up. He's now sitting behind 26,000 chips.
