Randy Lew Has Lost his Chips Here on Day 1
Randy Lew Has Lost his Chips Here on Day 1

We caught the action with the flop reading {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{q-Spades} and PokerStars Team Pro Randy "nanonoko" Lew facing a bet of 2,200 by the cutoff, and a call by Medi Shariat in the big blind.

Lew sat still as a stone for a few moments, before moving his last 15,500 or so chips forward. The cutoff quickly discarded his hand, but Shariat asked for a count before calling with {A-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}.

Lew also flopped trip queens, but his {Q-Clubs}{9-Clubs} left him outkicked, and blanks on the turn and river left him out of chips.

Russell Crane Cruising to Another WSOP Cash

Nivel 7 : 150-300, 25 ante
Russell Crane in Day 1 Action
Russell Crane in Day 1 Action

Russell Crane has a long record of cashing in major tournament series, and if he keeps up his pace today, he will likely add another cash to his impressive resume.

Crane has already cashed at this year's edition of the WSOP, earning #32,882 in Event # 6, the $1,500 "Millionaire Maker" event, and he has more than a million dollars in live cashes to his name.

As he is seated directly in front of the PokerNews Live Reporting station, we have been watching Crane lift stacks to to assemble the chip castle he currently presides over, and we wouldn't be surprised to see him here on Day 2 of this event.

We're in the Money (Spurs Bettors Anyway)

Nivel 7 : 150-300, 25 ante

A cheer went up around the Brasilia Room and, for a moment at least, it sounded like a major hand had just developed.

Then we realized Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Spurs and Heat had just ended, and players with winning tickets from the Rio sportsbook were simply celebrating the final score.

Josh Arieh Jets

Nivel 7 : 150-300, 25 ante

Longtime pro Josh Arieh, a staple of ESPN's first few years of WSOP broadcasts, was just seen dropping a minor pot. With his short stack, however, he probably could have used it.

After making a bet to claim a pot when the action was checked to him, Arieh insta-folded when his opponent reraised all-in.

Arieh will need to get it going soon if he hopes to bag and tag chips by the end of the night.

Burrowed by the Badger

Nivel 7 : 150-300, 25 ante

Richard Frye is a bear of a man, and clad in his all red Wisconsin Badger's gear, he brings quite an imposing presence to the table. A recent hand showed that he he knows how to use that presence to his advantage.

After shoving all-in with the board reading [qd105c9c], Frye's opponent went deep into the tank, staring intently at the board cards and working through his decision making process out lout.

"There's so many draws out there, I could hero here..." he said, trying to persuade himself to make the call.

After more than two minutes of deliberation, the player had still not made his choice, so Frye asked the dealer if he could call the clock.

"I don't mean to be rude," said Frye, apologizing to the player he had wagered his stack against.

Apparently this bit of vocalization convinced the player that Frye was weak, because he then plunked in a calling stack and turned over {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}. His top pair and gutshot straight draw was in trouble however, against Frye's set of tens, and a {4-Diamonds} on the river changed nothing.
