Day 1 of Ante-Only Sees Ryan D'Angelo Lead as Money Nears

Although some may have seen Monday as a quiet day on the 2014 World Series of Poker schedule, they would be wrong as Event #47: $1,500 Ante-Only No-Limit Hold'em took center stage as the only tournament that would start on the day.

In it's second run last year, the Ante-Only format attracted 678 players and had rave reviews, and in the third running this year a whopping 714 players took to the felt to create a $963,900 first prize that had $212,093 reserved for the victor.

As expected, play was incredibly fast as players consistently fell to the rail throughout the day, and even registering after dinner break couldn't help prevent a hasty exit as players still managed to only last a few hands. With play winding up for the evening, the chance to make the money seemed possible, but as played slowed down in the final few orbits only 80 players would survive meaning that eight players would return tomorrow and leave empty-handed.

Leading the field into Day 2 is Ryan D'Angelo who rode somewhat of a roller coaster in the latter few levels before soaring to an impressive 120,400 to end the day as one of the few players in the six-figure club. Recent bracelet winner Dan Kelly made a huge comeback over the last few hands to end with 98,400 while Max Silver (73,700), Eddy Sabat (56,800), Jason Somerville (51,800) and Maria Ho (50,300) all finished with above average stacks.

WSOP stalwarts Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth and Erik Seidel also ended with healthy stacks while 2013 WSOP Champion Ryan Riess is still in contention and looking at claiming his third cash for the series.

Play resumes at 1:00 p.m. (PDT) on Tuesday afternoom in the Amazon Room, and the PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be on hand to provide all the live updates as we look to play down to the Event #47 final table.

Four More Hands

• Level 10: 100-100, 400 ante

The tournament director has just announced that there will be just four more hands for the evening.

Currently there are 81 players remaining in the tournament and it is fairly unlikely that we will reach the money now.

Brenes Busts, Medic Triples, O'Donnell the Unlucky Loser

• Level 10: 100-100, 400 ante
Humberto Brenes
Humberto Brenes

Nenad Medic was all in for his last 5,100 and Humberto Brenes followed suit having him slightly covered. Kevin O'Donnell had both players covered and came along for the ride also.

Brenes: {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}
Medic: {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}
O'Donnell: {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}

With O'Donnell having the best of it, the {2-Spades}{7-Spades}{6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} board would see an unsavory river delivered to O'Donnell as he took a small side pot while Medic more than tripled up as Brenes headed to the rail.

Slowing Down

• Level 10: 100-100, 400 ante

The field size has shrunk down to just 88, but action is slowing right up as players are now realizing they are just 30 minutes from bagging and tagging.

The hopes of reaching the money are getting slimmer, but with a big hand cooler here or there, we may still flirt with reaching the money tonight.

Young Outdrawn

• Level 10: 100-100, 400 ante

Jordan Young found himself all in for his last 7,500.

Young: {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}
Opponent: {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}

The board ran out {J-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} to see Young sent to the rail.

Final Level of the Night

• Level 10: 100-100, 400 ante

We are now in the final level of the night!

With 98 players remaining and just 26 more eliminations needed until we reach the money, there is word that if the bubble gets close, play will continue so that no one returning tomorrow will have to endure the pain of walking home with no money.
