Day 1 of the Event #90: $50,000 Final Fifty has come to a conclusion with the 109-entrant field reduced to the final 44 players with Seth Davies in the lead.

Once the 2019 World Series of Poker (WSOP) was in full swing, a 90th bracelet event was added to the schedule for the 50th Annual WSOP with this Final Fifty looking to bookend another successful WSOP.

"We got some feedback from players who thought [the initial $50k event] was too early in the series and they weren’t around for it," said VP of Corporate Communications Seth Palansky. "We also goofed by not having a $25K High Roller NLH on the schedule this year, which was more feedback we received from players."

Following the success of the first $50,000 buy-in high roller event at the start of the WSOP that saw Ben Heath top a 110-entrant field to capture his first WSOP bracelet and the $1,484,085 first-place prize, another strong turnout came to play on Day 1 as a total of 109 entrants took to the felt. 70 of those entrants would be unique entrants as a plethora of players fired multiple bullets in this unlimited re-entry format.

Once the dust settled, the likes of WSOP bracelet winners Joe Cada, Erik Seidel, Dominik Nitsche, Michael Addamo, Stephen Chidwick, Justin Bonomo, Bryn Kenney, Nick Petrangelo, Kristen Bicknell, Joao Vieira, and Anthony Zinno found themselves on the rail throughout the day. Fortunately for the above mentioned - along with anyone that hasn't yet entered - registration is open through the start of Day 2 which is Tuesday, July 9, at 4 p.m. (PDT).

With just 44 players surviving into Day 2, it would be Seth Davies leading the charge after finishing with 2,250,000 and is the only player to surpass the two-million chip-mark. Right on his heels is Dan Smith (1,680,000), Elior Sion (1,520,000), Adrian Mateos (1,450,000), Fedor Holz (1,320,000), and Ali Imsirovic (1,290,000). Also surviving into Day 2 are WSOP bracelet winners Ivan Luca, Brian Rast, Brandon Adams, David Peters, Ben Yu, Daniel Negreanu, Julien Martini, Martin Kabrhel, Sam Soverel, Johannes Becker, and Heath.

Day 2 play is set to begin at 4 p.m. (PDT) on Tuesday, July 9, and once cards are in the air, registration for the Final Fifty will be closed. Players that take advantage of late registration will begin with 300,000 in starting chips, and blinds will be 10,000-20,000 with a big blind ante of 20,000.

The PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be on hand to provide continuous live updates of all the Final Fifty action from Day 2 as the tournament plays down to a final table of six players that will return at 12 p.m. (PDT) on Wednesday, July 10, to play out the final table which will be live streamed on PokerGO.

Luca Shoves Flop on Dai and Koon

• Level 12: 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante

On a flop of {9-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{10-Clubs} with roughly 132,000 in the middle, both Shang Dai and Jason Koon checked from the blinds to Ivan Luca on the button.

Luca bet 40,000, and Dai check-raised to 140,000. Koon called, and with the action back on Luca, he used a time extension chip before announcing he was all in for 432,000.

Dai then used his own time extension chip before folding.

"It's like f**king beyond sick," uttered Koon.

Koon used his own time extension chip, and then elected to muck.
