Trey Luxemburger - Day 1b chip leader

Day 1b of the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event is in the books, and leading the roughly 1,300 survivors is Trey Luxemburger. Luxemburger bagged 193,450 chips – less than Day 1a leader Martin Jacobson (200,100) – and he was trailed closely by Sarkis Hakobian (190,125) and Ryan Buckholtz (189,000).

Luxemburger has no prior results on the Hendon Mob database, Hakobian has a single cash, and Buckholtz has $375,648 in career live tournament earnings. Buckholtz also has one cash at the 2014 WSOP, finishing 397th in Event #51 for $4,670.

Also among the leaders is Matt Affleck, who of course made a deep run in the 2010 Main Event. Affleck, who refers to this event as the “McMain Event,” already has three cashes in the grand daddy of them all, and will enter Day 2b with 122,150.

Former champions Dan Harrington and Huck Seed survived the day, as did November Niners Michiel Brummelhuis, Kevin Schaffel, and Antoine Saout, and notables Brian Hastings, Marvin Rettenmaier, Erik Seidel, Vanessa Selbst, and Jason Somerville.

Not everyone was as fortunate, however, and there were a bevy of bustouts, including David Diaz, Mohsin Charania, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Paul Volpe, Chris Moorman, Joe Serock, Dan Shak, Robert Mizrachi, Minh Ly, Andy Black, David “Doc” Sands, and Kevin Saul. Shak was crippled with ace-king against pocket aces, and Moorman ran ace-queen into Volpe’s pocket queens.

Day 1b attracted a total of 2,144 runners, bringing the total player count to 2,915. This number is 30 players higher than 2013, and the WSOP staff is confident that Day 1c will be one the biggest flights in Main Event history. In 2013, the third and final flight attracted a total of 3,467 players.

The Main Event continues on Monday with Day 1c action starting at high noon. PokerNews will be on hand for another five 120-minute levels as we continue to march towards the November Nine.

Aces vs. Queens and Jacks

[user20283] • Līmenis 5: 200-400, 50 ante

The flop showed {2-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{7-Spades} when we just noticed that Charles Pacheco was all in for his tournament life worth 8,150 chips. The second player involved moved all in for 23,400 chips and the action was on Tony Moses on the button.

Moses tanked for a bit before eventually made the call to put both his opponents at risk.

Moses: {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}
Pacheco: {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds}
Opponent: {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

The board ran out {3-Hearts}, {9-Clubs} and both Pacheco and the third player involved were knocked out with just minutes left in the day.
