After a grueling day on the felt which spanned 14 hours of play, Event #9 of the 2014 World Series of Poker has come to a close. In the end a total of 1,940 entrants were recorded, and when it was all said and done just 161 players remained in contention for the gold bracelet - and $323,125 in prize money.

With the "Millionaire Maker" event captivating the poker world's attention yesterday by drawing an astounding field which nearly reached 8,000 runners, many of those who busted in there took a second shot here today. The field was littered with big name pros and recognizable names, and by the time chips were bagged and tagged a who's who of the game's best players were among the survivors.

Along the way players like Greg Merson, Mukul Pahuja, Joe Serock, Scott Clements, Blake Bohn, Ryan D'Angelo, D.J. MacKinnon, Joe McKeehen, Amanda Baker, Rex Clinkscales, and Russell Crane all came and went, with each falling short of the money.

The group of pros who did manage to earn at least a min-cash include Adam Geyer (177,500), Chris Hunichen (99,000), Vinny Pahuja (93,200), Faraz Jaka (62,000), Mark Radoja (72,700), Roland Israelashvili (54,100), and Daniel Buzgon (57,000).

Check back in with PokerNews tomorrow at 1 p.m. local time to continue following the action, as the remaining 161 players reconvene to continue their pursuit of WSOP glory.

The Harder Way

• Līmenis 11: 500-1,000, 100 ante

On one of the last hands of the night pro Christian Harder doubled through an opponent when his {10-Spades}{10-Hearts} held up over {A-Clubs}{q-Clubs}.

The final board rolled out {9-Spades}{7-Spades}{3-Clubs}{5-Spades}{7-Hearts} and Harder's pocket pair prevailed over the suited overcards.

Bubble Bursts Immediately

• Līmenis 11: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Well that didn't take long at all...

On one of the first deals of hand-for-hand play multiple short-stacks went busto simultaneously, leaving two players to split 198th place money, and two more on the outside looking in.

Hand for Hand Combat

• Līmenis 11: 500-1,000, 100 ante

With only two eliminations to go until the money bubble bursts, the tournament has entered hand for hand play.

A Gentleman's Game

• Līmenis 11: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Earlier in evening a bit of commotion took place over at Richard Whitebrook's table, with floor staff called over to sort through an apparent dealer error.

According to Whitebrook, one opponent opened the pot for a raise, and with {A-}{q-} in the hole, he decided to apply some pressure with a three-bet. The other player was undeterred though, and he four-bet the action, causing Whitebrook to slow down and simply flat to see the flop.

After the dealer fanned the {a-}{j-}{4-} across the felt, Whitebrook saw his opponent fire out a c-bet, but after flopping top pair he wasn't going anywhere. Whitebrook raised enough to put his opponent all in, and with most of his chips in the pot already, the man was committed to calling with just {j-}{10-} for middle pair.

The turn card came {4-} to pair the board - something which escaped the notice of the dealer - and when the river brought a {10-} to the table, the pot was inexplicably pushed toward the man who had rivered two pair. It took a third player at the table to note that Whitebrook also held two pair by virtue of the second four on board, and after a bit of explanation to the floor staff, the "winner" of the pot graciously admitted that his hand had indeed been second best.

Handing his chips back to their rightful owner, the man stood and made his exit, but not before offering Whitebrook a sincere "nice hand" on his way to the rail.
