Apparently Phil Ivey shares our view of the venue, as he was doing whatever he could to get the f’ outta dodge, moving all-in blind frequently during the first level. Ivey eventually got KO’d when his 2-3o under the gun shove got picked off by Brian Rast‘s pocket Kings.
Other than that, the action was not fast and furious, as the large stacks and small blind levels led to few eliminations.
Ali Eslami finished Day 1B as chip leader with 168,500. Other big named big stacks include Mark Seif (97,000), Allen Cunningham (94,025),
