The first of three Limit Hold’em events, Event #66: $1,500 Limit Hold’em drew 541 entries, generating a total prize pool of $730,350. After ten 60-minute levels of play on Day 1, only 184 competitors found a bag at the end of the night.

Leading the way is Shirley Rosario with 107,600. Rosario has over $227,000 in total earnings at the WSOP and will be looking to win her first bracelet. Closely trailing her is Z Stein with 106,100. Kevin Roster is still in contention as well with 50,100 in the bag. The former poker professional was diagnosed with Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer, just over a month ago, and decided to live his last moments doing what he loves at the WSOP. Roster is making some incredible memories this summer and a deep run in this event would only add to it.

"I just hope to make it through the rest of the Series, and as much as I can after that, and then hold on until life really isn't pleasurable to live anymore." said Roster after his latest day of fun at the felt.

Other notables to bag include Benny Glaser (77,200), Nicholas Pupillo (73,300), Joe McKeehen (73,300), Rep Porter (54,500), Andre Akkari (44,100) Daniel Negreanu (34,200), Vanessa Kade (30,900), Ben Yu (27,200), Anthony Zinno (24,500), Matt Glantz (21,400), Ian O'Hara (18,500), and Chris Ferguson (17,500).

However, not all players were lucky enough to make it to another day. Many recognizable players busted before the end of the night including bracelet winners Shaun Deeb, Barry Greenstein, Daniel Zack, Anson Tsang and Yaser Al-Keliddar, as well as Cary Katz and Jon Turner,

Day 2 will restart at 2 p.m. tomorrow and will last ten more levels of play. A total of 82 players will be in the money with a min-cash being worth $2,239. The winner will take home $161,139 in addition to the shiny gold bracelet and as players get that much closer, PokerNews will be there to cover all the action. Be sure to follow the event through to its conclusion.

SandraBarbour • Level 10: 1,000-2,000, 0 ante

The remaining players have bagged for the night. End-of-day chip counts and a recap will follow shortly.

Three More Hands

SandraBarbour • Level 10: 1,000-2,000, 0 ante

Three more hands will be played at each table before the remaining players bag and tag for the night.

Backdoor Flush for Negreanu

SandraBarbour • Level 10: 1,000-2,000, 0 ante

The player in middle position raised to 2,000 and Daniel Negreanu three-bet to 3,000 from the cutoff. Action folded back to the player in mid-positon who stuck around with a call.

The dealer fanned a flop of {q-Clubs}{9-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and the player in middle position checked. Negreanu bet 1,000 and his opponent check-called.

The turn brought the {10-Diamonds} and the player in mid-position check-called a bet of 2,000 from Negreanu.

The {q-Diamonds} filled up the board and the player in mid-position check-called once more a bet of 2,000 from Negreanu.

"Flush" muttered Negreanu turning over {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} for a backdoor flush. His opponent shook his head and sent his cards to the muck.

"Running hot!" Negreanu added, while raking in the pot.

Ratigan Takes From Welsh

SandraBarbour • Level 10: 1,000-2,000, 0 ante

On a flop reading {9-Hearts}{3-Spades}{3-Hearts}, Danny Ratigan checked from the small blind and Kerry Welsh bet 1,000 from mid-position. Ratigan check-raised to 2,000 and Welsh called.

The turn was the {5-Spades} and Ratigan moved all in for 1,400. Welsh called and the players tabled their cards.

Danny Ratigan: {q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Kerry Welsh: {a-Spades}{9-Clubs}

Welsh had nines and threes and Ratigan had a flush draw.

"I need help," muttered Ratigan. The {q-Spades} river filled up the board and Ratigan got the help he needed as he rivered queens and threes to take the pot from Welsh.
