Tony Ruberto leads at the conclusion of Day 1.
Tony Ruberto leads at the conclusion of Day 1.

Tony Ruberto was the lone player to top the 200,000 mark, as he bagged 203,300 to end Day 1 of Event #28: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship. The Massachusetts native was followed in the top five by well-known pro John Juanda (171,200), Frenchmen Michel Abecassis (165,100) and Benjamin Pollak (156,800), and Russian Alex Bilokur (156,500).

The return of the $10,000 PLHE event after a year off seemed to be well-received, as the 160 total entrants wasn't far off the 195 who played for $5,000 last year. The field was chock-full of notable names, and Antonio Esfandiari (144,300), Chino Rheem (122,700), Mike Matusow (94,000), and the legendary Phil Ivey (24,500) were among those bagging stacks at the end of the night.

Greg Merson, Matt Marafioti, Faraz Jaka, Bertrand Grospellier, David Paredes, and Jason Somerville were among the fallen here on Day 1, as 66 players made the cut for tomorrow's Day 2.

The survivors will return at 2 p.m. tomorrow to get back to battle, and we at PokerNews will be on hand to bring you all of the relevant live updates, so be sure to come back then.

Marafioti Mucks

[user127999] • Level 10: 600-1,200, 0 ante

Matt Marafioti has gone broke.

He ran {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts} into Erik Seidel's {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades} and although Marafioti flopped a flush draw on the {2-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{3-Hearts} flop, Seidel turned the case king to leave him drawing dead.

Seven Up

[user249920] • Level 10: 600-1,200, 0 ante

The tournament director just ordered the dealers to deal seven more hands before play wraps up for the night.

Shak Gutted By Juanda

[user127999] • Level 10: 600-1,200, 0 ante

Dan Shak's big day just came to a crashing halt. He still has chips, but the majority of the stack he spent the day building was just shipped one seat over to John Juanda.

The board read {10-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{q-Spades}{8-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} and from what we can gather, Shak bet the river, then called when Juanda potted it all in for his last 65,000. Shak's {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} had been outdrawn by Juanda's {a-Spades}{j-Spades} belly buster.
