Main Event Day 1B: Running for the Door

$1,500 + $150 Seminole Hard Rock “Rock ‘n’ Poker Open” Main Event

Blinds: 200/400/50 ante

With registration closed we can begin to get an idea about who will be around at the end of the day. Matt Waxman and Tony Ruberto are still going strong but the father/son duo of Jeff and Zach Kessler are done for the Main Event.

A funny old gentleman in the 9-seat at Table 31 recently sent two other players to the rail when he called both their all-ins with Jh9h after the Ah9d7h flop up against AcKs top-top and Ad9h top two. The 9-seat just chuckled as the two players to his right were drawing dead after the dealer put out the 6h turn. No miracle boat on the Jc river and the pony-tailed pulled in the 71,000 pot.

The rest of the field has quickly dropped under 150 players and those who stick around for Day 2 will join the 48 players with chips from Day 1A.
