Coetzer Collecting Chips

• Level 2: 100-200, 0 ante

Conrad Coetzer raised to 500 from the button, the small-blind player three-bet to 1,600 and Coetzer made the call.

After both players checked through to the turn on a board of {j-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}, the small-blind player put out a bet of 1,500, which was met with a raise to 3,900 from Coetzer. The small-blind player eyed Coetzer's stack, thought for a moment and then folded his hand.

Sexton Loses Then Wins

• Level 1: 100-100, 0 ante

In the first hand action was picked up on the river on a board of {4-Spades}{j-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{7-Spades} in a headsup pot and 1,100 in the middle.

Mike Sexton, in the small blind, put out a bet of 600 and was raised to 1,600 by the big-blind player. Sexton went into the tank for about a minute before he released his cards.

On the very next hand Sexton raised to 300 from the button and the big-blind player made the call. The big-blind player checked the {6-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} flop, Sexton continued for 300 and the big-blind player check-folded.

Event #84: $1,500 The Closer No-Limit Hold'em

Joe Cada won the first edition of this event last year

Welcome to Day 1a, the first of three starting flights, of Event #84: $1,500 The Closer No-Limit Hold’em. This tournament features a $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool with payouts starting on Day 1.

In 2018, 2009 WSOP Main Event champion Joe Cada outlasted 3,119 entrants to take home the $612,886 in cash and his fourth WSOP gold bracelet. Cada jumped into the tournament immediately after being eliminated in fifth place from the Main Event Final Table.

Players taking their seats will start with 25,000 in chips, an increase over last year’s starting stack of 15,000 chips. Like last year, players are allowed unlimited re-entries through the close of registration. The schedule for Day 1a will consist of twenty levels of 30 minutes each, with a 20-minute break after every four levels of play. There will be a 75-minute dinner break after the twelfth level (approximately 5:40 p.m.) and registration will close at the end of the dinner break (approximately 6:55 p.m.). Those players lucky enough to find a bag at the end of play will return on Monday, July 15th at noon local time.

Play kicks off at 11 a.m. local time, and if the number of entrants from last year’s tournament and the big numbers that the No-Limit tournaments have put up all summer during the 2019 World Series are any indication, this event is going to be yet another huge one.

The Pokernews team will be on hand to report all the action from when the first card is dealt until the last card hits the felt.
