Nicolas Levi is in contention as Day 2 begins.
Nicolas Levi is in contention as Day 2 begins.

Tony Ruberto leads the final 243 players in Event #56: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em here at the 2013 World Series of Poker in the Rio. He bagged 178,200 in chips when Level 11 ended last night, and Florens Feenstra (171,700), Bob Panitch (150,700), Nicolas Levi (148,300) and AJ Bertenshaw (147,800) round out the top five.

The starting field of 1,736 is more than 100 more than last year, and the winner will be taking home $730,756 and a gold bracelet for first place. Before we can crown a winner, we first need to get into the money, and that should happen fairly early on today; 198 of the remaining 243 will get paid. Once that happens, we'll likely see a flurry of shorter stacks busting out, and the late-game direction of the tournament should begin to come into focus.

Notable runners remaining include Mark Teltscher (113,100), Jonathan Tamayo (91,900), Josh Arieh (79,800), Erik Seidel (58,000), Matt Marafioti (51,000), Dan Smith (46,400), Jesse Sylvia (41,000), and Amit Makhija (37,000).

Some More All Ins

Nivel 12 : 600/1,200, 200 ante

Leandro Vlastaris survived his first all in of the day when he flopped a set with pocket jacks against one of our Day 2 chip leaders, Floren Feenstia.

David Peters also survived an all in when his {a-Spades}{k-Spades} was up against his opponents {A-Clubs}{k-Hearts}. Peters flopped great when two spades appeared but another didn't materialiize by the river so the pot was chopped.

Panitch Continues to Climb

Robert Panitch opened from middle position to 3,000 and was followed by a reraise from Ola Amundsgard to 8,000 from the cutoff. After the button and blinds folded, Panitch moved all in and Amundsgard called, asking if Panitch had a big pair. When the hands were tabled, Amundsgard saw the bad news.

Panitch: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}
Amundsgard : {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

The {q-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{5-Clubs} board didn't provide any help to Amundsgard and Panitch's aces held up.

Play Slowing Down

Nivel 12 : 600/1,200, 200 ante

After the flurry of all ins to start the tournament, the second half of level 12 saw play slow down a bit as we approach the money bubble. With about 15 players until the money, the short stacks are picking their spots more carefully and the big stacks have been applying pressure.

Hinkle Runs into a Set

Nivel 12 : 600/1,200, 200 ante

We caught up with Blair Hinkle in a hand where he had position on an opponent on a board of {7-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}. Hinkle's opponent check-called a bet, and the players saw the {j-Clubs} fall on the river. Hinkle's opponent again checked, and Hinkle began thinking. After about 90 seconds, he bet 13,000, about half of his opponent's remaining chips. The player though briefly before calling.

Hinkle: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}
Opponent: {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}

"You nearly gave me a heart attack," the player said as he scooped the pot with his set.
