On Sunday afternoon, 2,878 players took their seats in the fourth and final flight of Event #60: $888 Crazy Eights No-Limit Hold'em 8-Handed, but only 136 bagged chips at the end of the night.

Leading the way out of this flight is Paul Berger who put 646,000 in the bag. Berger had already accumulated a relatively large stack of about 350,000 before doubling through nine-time WSOP Circuit ring winner Valentin Vornicu on the final hand of the day, leaving Vornicu with just 68,000 chips heading into Day 2. Behind Berger, the next largest stack currently belongs to Alex Papazian with 516,000.

A handfull of well-known players survived Flight 1d action, including Danny Wong (385,000), Ian O'Hara (267,000), Shannon Shorr (262,000), Kevin MacPhee (250,000), William Kassouf (200,000), Cate Hall (131,000), and Lee Markholdt.

Some of the familiar faces that made an appearance in Flight 1d but didn't find a bag include Chris Hunichen, Andreas Klatt, Sofia Lovgren, Chris Moorman, Rex Clinkscales, Cliff Josephy, and David Pham.

This event saw record 8,120 total entries across all four flights, far surpassing last year's 6,761 total runners. Complete prizepool and payout information is not yet available at the time of this writing, but it will be published no later than the start of play on Day 2.

Play will resume Monday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. local time, when players from all four starting flights will combine. Be sure to check back here for all the updates in this event and throughout the remainder of the 2017 World Series of Poker from the PokerNews live reporting team.

Play Concluded

• Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Play has concluded for the day. A recap will be posted shortly.

Three More Hands

• Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Each table will play three more hands before bagging chips for the night.

A Favorable Runout for Valentin Vornicu

• Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

A player opened with a raise to 13,000. Valentin Vornicu three-bet to 30,000 and the original raiser four-bet jammed for about 150,000. Vornicu called to put his opponent at risk.

Vornicu: {9-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
Opponent: {4-}{4-}

The board ran out {K-}{Q-}{3-}{K-}{Q-} to counterfeit Vornicu's opponent's pocket fours and make Vornicu's nine high the winning hand. As he stacked his chips, he shouted to William Kassouf a few tables away, "Hey, Will! I just won with nine high like a boss!"

"Oh yeah? Well I just won with six high like a boss and showed it," yelled Kassouf.

Kassouf Gets a Fold

• Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
William Kassouf
William Kassouf

With a substantial pot of about 50,000 already brewing on a flop of {J-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{8-Spades}, a player in middle position checked to William Kassouf in the cutoff, and he bet 24,000.

"If you've got top pair, you're behind," said Kassouf. "Best hand preflop, best hand on the flop." The middle-position player called.

The turn brought the {J-Spades} and Kassouf instructed his opponent, "Don't make a small bet. All in or fold." Kassouf's opponent bet 33,000, leaving himself about 50,000 chips behind, and Kassouf quickly shoved, sending his opponent into the tank. "You can't bluff me and I know you haven't got a jack."

The middle-position player said he had a straight flush draw. "I know I can't be dead," he said.

"You've got one out."

After over five minutes, the clock was called. The seconds ticked down to zero and Kassouf's opponent's hand was declared dead. Kassouf flashed the {A-Diamonds} as he tossed his cards into the muck.

"If you don't have ace jack there, I'll never touch a card again," said Kassouf's opponent.

Josh Gibson vs. Valentin Vornicu

• Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Josh Gibson opened to 9,000 from early position and Valentin Vornicu three-bet to 30,000 from the cutoff, sending Gibson into the tank. After several minutes, the clock was called. The floor gave Gibson 30 seconds to act, but he still hadn't moved when the countdown reached zero, so his hand was declared dead.

Gibson flashed {A-Spades}{J-Spades} as he tossed his cards into the muck, and Vornicu showed the {A-Diamonds} as he took the chips.
