Steve Foutty Among Leaders After Day 1b of WSOP Main Event

Steve Foutty

A wild day 1b of Event #67: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event Championship is in the books, as yet another chapter in this illustrious tournament's history unfolded.

The day attracted 845 entries and ended with 611 players left.

The chip leader at the end of Day 1b was Las Vegas local Steve Foutty, who bagged 287,000 after trending steadily upwards toward the end of the night. Foutty has already had a fairly successful WSOP with five cashes so far.

A few of the other big stacks to end the night include; ClubGG qualifier Matthew Traylor who bagged 279,500 and Keegan Westover who ended with 230,700, thanks in large part to a wild hand in which he spiked a king on the flop to crack aces. He could have had even more had queens not folded preflop in the same hand.

The day included many highlights, with many well-known player's able to navigate their way to a bag. They include; Ronnie Bardah who finished with 139,600, Stephen Chidwick (124,900), Kevin Gerhart (112,400), Mike Matusow (56,500) and Justin Bonomo. The former Big One for One Drop champion had a rough go of it for much of the day, failing to gain any real traction, but nevertheless is still alive with a short stack of 18,900.

Craig Varnell also survived the day with 51,800, but this amount will feel like a lot more to him having been as low as 9,000 in the last level of the night, before spinning it back up just under starting stack.

10Jean GuilletteCanada223,200

Even though over 60% of the field advanced to Day 2ab, there were many who could not survive and ended up hitting the rail before the end of the day. Including two-time WSOP Main Event champion Johnny Chan who was eliminated early in the day by two-pair, Ryan Depaulo and John Racener hit the rail in the middle part of the day. The last level of the night claimed the Main Event lives of Brian Rast who lost a big flip, Nick Schulman via set over set and of Shaun Deeb who could not climb out of the short stack hole he was in all day.

The survivors of Day 1b will now have a lengthy break before they return to action on Tuesday November 9th at 11 a.m. local time where they will combine with the Day 1a and Day 1d survivors for Day 2abd.

The next starting flight, Day 1c will begin at 11 a.m. local time with the same five two-hour level structure as the first two starting days. PokerNews will have all the coverage once again.

Aces Versus Kings (and Queens Fold!)

Keegan Westover

"You gotta be f***ing kidding me" was recently heard in the corner of the Amazon purple section, as Sean Dunleavy was just crushed in a hand with Keegan Westover.

Amanda Baker opened the action in early position to 1,200 and Westover three-bet to 3,500 in middle position. A player in late position flatted the 3,500 and then Dunleavy shoved all-in for 65,000. Baker folded what she later said was pocket queens, Westover called the 65,000 and the late position player folded.

The cards were turned up and Baker's fold turned out to be perfect.

Sean Dunleavy:   
Keegan Westover:   

Dunleavy was in the dream situation, but as can often happen, the dream turned into a nightmare as the flop came    , bringing a set for Westover. The turn   and river   brought no help, and Dunleavy's day was brought to a heartbreaking end, while Westover is now in contention for the day 1b chip lead.
