Sam Trickett Dominates Day 1

On Sunday, Day 1 of the second-ever $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop came to a close. A grand total of 42 players put up the $1,000,000 entry fee to compete in what will be the largest buy-in poker tournament of the year. At the end of nine levels it was 2012 Big One for One Drop runner-up Sam Trickett who bagged up the biggest stack with 13.4 million in chips.

Trickett's day began with an exciting start as he scored the first elimination of the tournament just one level into the day. Trickett clashed with David Einhorn in a hand where the former turned the nut straight against the latter's flopped set of jacks. Einhorn was eliminated from play and Trickett suddenly held double starting stack. From there, it seemed that Trickett could not be stopped as he continued to score eliminations. Trickett rivered a straight to crack Igor Kurganov's pocket queens in a four-bet pot to eliminate Kurganov roughly halfway through the day. Shortley thereafter, Trickett and Selbst played an eight-million chip pot where the three-time WSOP bracelet winner six-bet shoved with ace-king. Trickett called with pocket kings and the two endured a roller coaster of a run out. Trickett finished on top and the first-ever woman to participate in the Big One for One Drop was eliminated from play.

While Trickett finished with the largest stack in the room, others thrived throughout the day as well. Tom Hall's stack seemingly consistently trended upward and he bagged up the second largest stack with 9.125 million. Rounding out the top three is recent 10-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Ivey with 7.675 million in chips.

Also returning for Day 2 is reigning Big One for One Drop champion Antonio Esfandiari. Roughly halfway through the day, Esfandiari found a key double up through Dan Smith. From there on, Esfandiari continued to build his stack and earned a good chunk of chips in a more than two-million chip pot with Erik Seidel. Esfandiari bagged up 6.725 million in chips which is good for fifth in chips overall. Interestingly enough, Esfandiari bagged up fourth in chips in this event two years ago. Day 1 chip leader and last year's runner-up Trickett, on the other hand bagged up sixth in chips two years ago. These two are seated next to one another to start Day 2.

The starting field of 42 players was reduced to just 31 by the end of the night. Those to fall throughout the day include Stanley Choi, Max Altergott, Brian Rast, Philipp Gruissem, Jason Mercier, Niklas Heinecker, Smith, and Rono Lo who fell on the last hand of the night.

Play resumes on Monday at 1 p.m. when the final 31 players will return to play a full 10 levels. As always, PokerNews will be on hand to provide the latest updates from this exciting event!

Rono Lo Eliminated on the Last Hand of the Day

Rono Lo
Rono Lo

Phil Galfond raised from the button to 105,000 and Rono Lo called from the button. Phil Ivey was seated in the small blind and he three-bet to 320,000. Galfond tanked for a bit before calling and Lo called immediately with just 80,000 chips left behind.

The flop brought out {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{7-Hearts} and Ivey bet 500,000. Galfond folded after about 20 seconds. Lo threw his final chips into the pot and the showdown went as following.

Ivey: {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Lo: {2-Hearts}{2-Spades}

The board ran out {10-Clubs}, {8-Diamonds} and Lo was knocked out on the last hand of the day.

Bagging and Tagging

Nivel 9 : 20,000/40,000, 5,000 ante

Day 1 of the 2014 $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop has come to a close and the remaining players are bagging up their chips. Stay tuned for end-of-day chip counts and a recap to close the day.

Al Pacino

Over on Table 353 in the front corner of the room where Daniel Negreanu and Phil Ivey are seated, Rono Lo opened with a raise to 240,000 — or in other words, six times the big blind.

"That's Al Pacino," said Ivey immediately, looking around the table while tossing in his hand as a fold. The entire table was looking back at Ivey confused by the comment about Al Pacino and what Ivey was referring to before they also folded.

Ivey looked back to Lo's big preflop raise to signal the table he was talking about that and then said, "He's not f***ing around. That's Al Pacino right there."

Niklas Heinecker - Eliminated
Niklas Heinecker - Eliminated

Action folded around to Phil Ivey in the small blind who raised enough to put Niklas Heinecker all in. Heinecker called for his tournament life of what looked to be around 750,000.

Ivey: {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}
Heinecker: {A-Diamonds}{9-Spades}

The board ran out {7-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{10-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}, keeping Ivey's ace-king in the lead and sending Heinecker packing. Heinecker is the fourth German to be eliminated from play today, leaving Tobias Reinkemeier as the last German standing in the field.
