Day 1 of Event #32: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em (Six Handed) has come and gone. When registration closed, 516 players had ponied up the buy-in for this event and the top prize was set at over $600,000. Finishing the day in the pole position was Jonathan Little with 179,700 in chips. Hot on his heels are a group of tough competitors including Daniel Negreanu (168,600), Brian Rast (151,200) and Justin Smith (149,800).

Many top pros came and went in this event including Jason Mercier, Vanessa Selbst, Phil Hellmuth, Ben Lamb and Joe Hachem, but not all is lost as plenty of big names advanced to Day 2. Some of those moving on are Brock Parker, Steve O'Dwyer, Chris Klodnicki, Allen Bari, Max Steinberg, TJ Cloutier, Matt Waxman and Gavin Smith.

Day 2 will kick off at 1 p.m. with the cards in the air, and it's going to be a great day of poker. On tap will be the money bubble and then the quest for the final table. With around 120 players still left in the hunt, things will be fast and furious from the get go.

Marafioti Flips, Then Flips Out

Brian Hastings Was Gracious in Defeat After Matt Marafioti's Brash Celebration
Brian Hastings Was Gracious in Defeat After Matt Marafioti's Brash Celebration

The loudest celebration of the day, aside from that let loose by the Miami Heat bettors in the house this evening, erupted from Matt Marafioti's table, after the flashy young pro spiked a king on the river to survive.

"Yes!!," he screamed, knocking over his chair as he did so. "That's what he gets for calling my 40 big blind shove with sixes!"

Apparently Brian Hastings called Marafioti's all-in bet before the flop with the best hand. His {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} was a slight favorite against Marafioti's {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades} through the turn on the {7-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{j-Clubs}{7-Spades} board, but the {K-Hearts} on the river saved Marafioti, sending him into a frenzy.

"Yeah, sixes are good there," he chided a smiling Hastings. "I've always got the fives there when I shove for 40 bigs."

"I was ahead when I called," reminded Hastings, still smiling despite smarting from the loss. "I was ahead on the flop and fourth street too."

Four More Hands

[user68268] • Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

The tournament staff has announced that each table will play four more hands before calling it quits for the night and bagging up their chips.

Polychronopoulos Spikes a Double

[user68268] • Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

After Richard Lyndaker raised, Athanasios Polychronopoulos reraised all in for 22,700 on the button. Jackie Glazier moved all in from the big blind, and Lyndaker folded.

Polychronopoulos: {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}
Glazier: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

Polychronopoulos' run good continued as the board ran out {J-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{2-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}, and he doubled up.

Don't Forget to Flush the Toilet

• Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante
Faraz "The Toilet" Jaka Stack Plunged After His Last Hand Against Athanasios Polychronopoulos
Faraz "The Toilet" Jaka Stack Plunged After His Last Hand Against Athanasios Polychronopoulos

We just saw recent WSOP bracelet winner Athanasios Polychronopoulos take most of his friend Faraz Jaka's chips, and the man affectionately known as "The Toilet" was eliminated shortly after being crippled.

The action was missed, but Polychronopoulos' {K-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} was tabled alongside Jaka's {A-}{5-}, and the board read {6-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}. Although he had flopped top pair with his ace, Jaka ran into Polychronopoulos' nut flush on the turn.

With this infusion of chips before the players bag and tag for the evening, Polychronopoulos is hoping to generate some momentum for another deep WSOP run.

James Miller Goes From Seniors to Short-Handed

• Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante
James Miller (Seen Here at the Final Table of the Seniors Championship) Has Decided to Play With the Youngsters Here on Day 1
James Miller (Seen Here at the Final Table of the Seniors Championship) Has Decided to Play With the Youngsters Here on Day 1

Fresh from his seventh-place finish in Event #26, the $1,000 Seniors Championship, James Miller has parlayed his fattened bankroll into a few more shots at that elusive gold bracelet.

Today he has survived nearly a full day of six-handed action against many of poker's elite, and despite playing alongside Erick Lindgren, Randy Lew, and Tommy Vedes for much of the night, Miller has held his own.

Miller currently sits with a below average stack, but he proved throughout his Seniors Championship run that he can grind the short stack effectivley while waiting for the right spot. While the play here may be a bit more aggressive than in that event, Miller is just one double up away from putting himself in contention yet again this summer.
