Mercado vs Nakdali

The action kicked off with a raise to 500 by Zhenyu "rainsong" Song and Jesse "AAGenius88" Mercado then made it 1,800 to go from one seat over in the hijack. Yaman "granjefe77" Nakdali then four-bet to 5,100 in the cutoff and Mercado was the only caller. On a flop of {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{7-Clubs}, Mercado opted to check-call a bet worth 8,250 and check-called all-in after the {2-Spades} turn for 47,413 when Nakdali used the time bank and ripped it in.

Jesse "AAGenius88" Mercado: {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}
Yaman "granjefe77" Nakdali: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}

A blank {7-Spades} fell on the river and just like that, the tournament was over for Mercado in the first level of the day.

"QIYAOQING" Flops the Higher Set

poolshir • Level 1: 100-200, 0 ante

"ivridich" raised to 400 from the middle position and "QIYAOQING" three-bet to 1,225 from the late position. The action folded to "R Reis" in the small blind who made the call and so did "ivridich".

The flop came {j-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}, it was checked to "QIYAOQING" who continued with a bet of 2,015 which only "R Reis" called.

The turn was the {7-Clubs}, "QIYAOQING"'s continuation-bet of 4,111 was check-called by "R Reis".

The river completed the board with the {q-Diamonds} for both players to check. "QIYAOQING" showed the {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs} for the flopped set which beat the {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds} of "R Reis" with the lower set to scoop the pot.

"tezzy" Takes From Fischer

zedmaster84 • Level 1: 100-200, 0 ante

Rodrigo "sauvage" Valente opened to 400 in the cutoff and was called by Ivan "Cordialement" Deyra on the button and Manuel "OPPikachu" Fischer in the small blind. Japan's "tezzy" in the big blind had other plans and squeezed to 2,400, which only Fischer called.

The flop brought {a-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and Fischer opted to check, which triggered a bet of 1,700 by "tezzy". That was all it took to win the pot, as Fischer sent his cards into the muck.

Loosli Lets Go on the River

zedmaster84 • Level 1: 100-200, 0 ante

Sylvain Loosli three-bet a raise to 440 by "AfsunS" and a cold-call by Artem "Amsterq" Prostak to 3,000 out of the big blind and was called only by "AfsunS". On a flop of {a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}, Loosli check-called a bet of 2,682 and the {9-Diamonds} on the turn went check, check.

On the {2-Spades} river, Loosli checked once more and "AfsunS" made it 6,548 to go in order to force a fold.

Balaguer Pays Off Deyra

zedmaster84 • Level 1: 100-200, 0 ante

Ivan "Cordialement" Deyra made it 600 to go from early position and was called by Alex "El Internado" Balaguer in the big blind. On a board of {j-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{10-Spades}, Balaguer ended up check-calling three barrels for 550, 3,100 and 2,924 respectively.

Deyra tabled the {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades} and that won the pot, as Balaguer only held {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}.

Shuffle Up and Deal

poolshir • Level 1: 100-200, 0 ante

With 94 players in the field, the tournament has just kicked off.


6 PM GMT Start for Day 1B of the GGPoker $10,000 World Series Of Poker Main Event

WSOP GGPoker Main Event
WSOP GGPoker Main Event

The first of three flights in the GGPoker $10,000 World Series Of Poker Main Event attracted 246 hopefuls but only 62 of them made it through to Day 2 on Monday, December 7. Two more flights will take place this weekend for the players who haven't tried making it through to the next stage and it remains to be seen which of the two starting days players will choose to fire their single bullet in.

Day 1b starts at 6 p.m. GMT today in a tournament which is a special set up as it's an online/live poker hybrid that will ultimately come to a conclusion at the end of the year with the 2020 World Champion. Day 1b and 1c will take place online here at GGPoker and everyone who survives the first 16 levels on Day 1 will continue on to Day 2 for a combined field. Those players will all battle it out until a final table with 9 hopefuls left who will then have to travel to King’s Resort in Rozvadov, the Czech Republic to play down to one winner.

Getting to the final table means that they will grab a much bigger share of the prize pool. But that's not all, the champion will get a spot to participate in a winner-takes-all $1 million heads-up battle in the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino Las Vegas against the champion of the edition of this $10,000 tournament on December 30th. Whoever wins that one-on-one battle will be crowned the 2020 World Champion and take the $1 million prize on top.

Players like Julian "VWgunther" Menhardt, Preben Stokkan, Michal Lubas, Sosia Jiang, Laurynas Levinskas, Shahar Levi, Alexandros Theologis, and Brunno Botteon have already secured a spot for Day 2 while familiar names like Fedor Holz, Ami Barer, Rainer Kempe, Ognyan Dimov, David Yan, Ole Schemion, and Nobert Szecsi have fallen already and won't be back in the running this year.

Players will get 60,000 in chips in their starting stacks with a small blind of 100 and a big blind of 200 in the first level of the day. Late registration will be possible until midnight GMT. As this is a freezeout tournament, players can only enter once during the whole tournament so reentering is impossible if a player busts Day 1b. Level duration will remain at 30 minutes throughout the day and play will end for Day 2 when all 16 levels have been played.

The PokerNews live reporting team will be providing you with all the updates from the first beep until the final fold so make sure to keep following along with all the action right here.
