Flight A of Event #51 Ends: The Day the Monster Stack Came To Town

The Pavilion Room is packed wall to wall with players in Event #51: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Monster Stack

The halls and the poker rooms of the Rio were packed today as players turned out in droves for Event #51, the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Monster Stack.

The numbers were so big that a second flight was introduced with flight A capped at 4,020 entrants. As they finished play for the day at the end of nine one-hour levels flight B players were still taking their seats with the tournament screen showing 7,734 registrations.

The prize pool has yet to be announced but with those numbers it means over $11 million will be paid out with the winner sure to walk away with over $1.3 million

It was difficult to pick out a chip leader at the end of the day as players were still seated in several areas, but Pierre Calamusa will take some catching finishing with over 220,000 chips.

With a starting stack of 600 big blinds the tournament held the promise of a lot of play for the entrants but it didn't necessarily work out that way for everyone. For the less experienced players it was a chance to see a few more flops and recover from early mistakes. For the pros it was a chance to show their deepstack skills and to make the most of the value that the field represented.

It looked as if at least a third of the starting flight had been eliminated by the end of their allotted nine levels of play, but with no official confirmation yet it is hard to put an exact figure on the eliminations.

Some of the notables in the first flight who will be coming back tomorrow include Sofia Lovgren, Kara Scott, Barny Boatman, Dermot Blain, Dash Dudley and Jimmy Fricke. Many more have opted to join the second flight and are still playing in the hope of joining them.

Coverage of Day 2 resumes tomorrow at 3 p.m. and PokerNews will be there to keep you up to date with all the developments of this huge tournament including confirmation of the chip leaders, final numbers and prize pool as the two flights merge and the action continues.

Three More Hands

The floor had just announced three more hands for the night.

More tables are breaking and heading towards the Brasilia tournament room. We are seeing a few of the shorter stacks getting their chips in the middle looking for that double up to make it worth their while coming back tomorrow at 3 p.m..

The floor are doing a terrific job of shifting people around as quickly as possible to make way for the late joiners in flight B.

Into the last level of the night for flight A of Day 1.

Here's some chip updates including Pierre Calamusa who shows no sign of slowing down and may well be the chip leader.

Monster Stacks

Pierre Calamusa is another player approaching the 100,000 mark. He has built an impressive tower in front of him and had just over 90,000.

Breaching the 100,000 barrier though is Mike Vogel currently sitting with 103,000

Fricke Tactical Late Arrival

Jimmy Fricke told us he purposefully arrived late in the day so as not to face the long grind of a full day. The way he's going though, it looks like he might have to face that long grind tomorrow.

Sat to his right, Dermot Blain is back down to 40,000.

Dentale Goes From Rags To Riches

One of the bigger stacks at the moment in flight A is surely Michael Dentale.

He told us that he was down to 4,000 earlier in the day but since then has, "Chipped up slowly." and is now playing 90,000.

That's some chipping up.

Lovgren Busts One

Sofia Lovgren had raised and faced an all-in shove from her opponent of 9,600 more. She took a few moments before calling.

Her opponent tabled his    and Lovegren showed her   .

The board ran out       and Lovegren won a big pot to put her in a great position at this stage of the tournament.

Fricke Fun

Jimmy Fricke certainly is having fun, he opened from first position and got called by the button and Dermot Blain. The flop was     and it was checked to the button who bet 1,200. Blian folded but Fricke flicked out a call.

The turn   and river   was checked down and Fricke turned over his    fairly confidently. His opponent looked back at his cards and then conceded the pot.

Kristy Arnett

Kristy Arnett had    and it reportedly went all in on the flop of    . Her opponent had flopped a straight with    and even the re-draw to the flush was no good for Arnett as the board bricked out.

Vanessa Rousso had been short on chips for a while and her exit hand involved her    getting cracked by a    which filled up to a full house on the river.

Lubarsky Gathering Chips

Hal Lubarsky was the first blind player to ever cash at a WSOP event and has gone on to cash three more times. He is here today playing in another event this series and is doing pretty well so far.

Nick Welthall fared less well, losing a lot of chips early on and getting the last of it in with    versus   . The run out of the board probably summed up his day:      .

Rollercoaster Ryan

Ryan Spittles admitted it has been a very swingy day, At one point he was down to 4,500 but he has worked it up to 33,000 and added some more in a hand we just witnessed.

Spittles opened for 500 and got two callers. On a board of     one opponent bet 800, the other called and Spittles made it 2,600. Neither of the other players put up a fight and laid down their hands.
