After 12 levels of play Brandon Adams has bagged the chip lead with 50 left in Event #83: $100,000 High Roller heading into Day 2.
He's making a habit of bagging chip leads, after finishing top of the pile after Day 2 in the $50,000 High Roller. He finished fourth in that event for $500,282 five days after winning his first bracelet in the $3,200 No Limit Hold'em - WSOP.com Online High Roller (Event #74) for $411,561.
Even bigger prizes are yet to be won here in the biggest buy-in of the 2019 World Series of Poker, and close behind Adams there are still plenty of big stacks including Byron Kaverman (2,655,000), James Chen (2,150,000), Thomas Boivin (2,115,000), Mikita Badziakouski (2,105,000), Ali Imsirovic (2,060,000) and Steffen Sontheimer (2,010,000).
Last year's $100,000 High Roller attracted 105 entries and that looks to be under threat as 93 players entered on Day 1 with late registration and a single re-entry available to players until the start of Day 2.
Day 1 Recap
As expected, the great and the good sidled into the corner of the Amazon hoping to cap off their summers with a bracelet and an expected seven-figure payout.
However there were some new faces; Japanese players Junichi Nakanowatari, Kensaku Takagi, Yusuke Takahashi and Keiji Takahashi were all in action early, as well as High Roller regulars such as Talal Shakerchi, Bill Klein, Daniel Negreanu, Erik Seidel and Justin Bonomo.
The early pace was set by Sam Grafton, and he was the first player over one million in chips. Although with a 600,000 starting stack, he was soon joined by Klein and Takagi.
More players joined the field including 2019 bracelet winners Ben Heath, Danny Tang and Brandon Adams, although Heath would bust twice in quick succession.
As the eliminations and re-entries mounted, the chip stacks continued to grow until the big stacks surpassed two million. Daniel Negreanu was a late elimination, busting in one of the final hands of the night but expect him to be back in action at the start of Day 2.
Play resumes on July 12th at 1 p.m. with the plan to play down to the final six. Stay tuned to PokerNews for all the action as the $100,000 High Roller continues.

Seth Davies raised to 45,000 under the gun and Kainalu McCue-Unciano called from the hijack along with Brandon Adams in the big blind.
A flop reading was dealt and Adams and Davies checked. McCue-Unciano fired 70,000 and Adams check-called. Davies check-raised to 260,000 and McCue-Unciano let it go but Adams responded by moving all in. Davies snap-called for less and the players tabled their cards.
Davies had aces and Adams had flopped a flush draw. The turn giving Adams a flush and the river filled up the board for him to rake in the pot, sending Davies to the rail.
Dietrich Fast held and was all in for 338,000 against the of Daniel Negreanu.

Negreanu slammed the table as the completed the board and Fast doubled up with less than 15 minutes left in the level.
There was a raise from Michael Addamo under the gun and a three-bet from Danny Tang in the cutoff. When action folded back to Addamo, he four-bet shoved for about 485,000. Tang made the call.
The board ran out and Tang took down the pot, eliminating Addamo.
