Day 1 of the Super High Roller comes to an end with just three players remaining. Here are their official chip counts, followed by the prize pool:

Seat 1.  Dan Shak  –  975,000  (65 bb)
Seat 2.  Giuseppe Iadisernia  –  560,000  (37 bb)
Seat 3.  Elio Fox  –  965,000  (64 bb)

1st:  $500,000
2nd:  $305,000
3rd:  $190,000
4th:  Ali Imsirovic  –  $130,000
5th:  Chris Hunichen  –  $100,000

There were 25 total entries in this $50,000 buy-in event, creating a total prize pool worth $1,225,000 to surpass the $1 million guarantee.

The field was made up of 17 unique players, with three entering twice, one entering three times (David Peters), and one entering four times (Jake Schindler). None of the players who fired more than one bullet finished in the money.

Bryn Kenney was the unfortunate player to bust on the money bubble when he three-bet all in for 14 bb with 9s9c, but he ran into the QsQc of Giuseppe Iadisernia.

Fifth-place finisher Chris Hunichen earned his entry into this event by winning Tuesday’s $5,100 Mega Satellite, making his $100,000 min-cash much more profitable.

The final three players agreed to delay tomorrow’s Day 2 start until 2pm, which gives them an extra two hours before play begins.
