It’s been a while since we’ve had a chance to update Event 1, and a lot has changed over the course of the last hour. The field is now just 13 players strong.
Nipun Java is primarily the one driving the action, and his chip stack has swollen as a result. Just a moment after eliminating Reinaldo Troconis with ace-king, Java played another big pot against Jonathan Snead.
Snead got himself all in for 2,170,000 before the flop, and Java re-shoved for more than 10 million behind him. When the rest of the table folded, Java showed down more of the same.
“Ace-king again?” Snead asked. Java nodded.
The board ran out , and the kicker played to earn Java another knockout pot. Snead was eliminated in 14th place, sending his chips over into Java’s already mighty stack.
The California pro now has more than 20 percent of the chips in play.
Nipun Java – 13,400,000 (89 bb) Jonathan Snead – Eliminated

The flop was , and Guevara continued for what looked like 500,000. Mehallis quickly folded, but Freitas raised all in with the larger of the two stacks. Guevara had 1,305,000 chips behind his bet, and he eventually called all in to put himself at risk.
Guevara’s kicker had him poised for a double-up, and the turn and river secured the pot.

Tyler Rauh opened to 175,000 in early position, and Brian Powell three-bet shoved for 1,900,000 a couple seats over. On the button, Zach Donovan asked for the count before moving all in with his chip-leading stack.
“I’m glad I don’t have a decision to make,” Rauh said, quickly surrendering his cards into the muck to leave Powell heads-up for his tournament life.
The board ran out , and Powell flopped top set and turned jacks full to earn the come-from-behind double-up.
