Day 1 of the $1,000 Turbo No-Limit Hold’em event has concluded and a field of 1,474 entrants has been cut down to only nine players.
Unfortunately we lost Amanda Baker on the final table bubble, when her aces got cracked, and she shortly after moved all in with a pair of threes. She got called by Andy Philachack, who had picked up pocket teens. The board changed nothing, and Baker was out in 10th place with a $19,398 paycheck:
Busted in 10th. Took a beat with AA and couldn't recover. I'm happy with how I played though. On to the next one! #RunGood

The fast structure of the event with 30-minute levels and only 3,000 in starting chips put the players under pressure right from the start. After 3-4 hours of play only 550 players remained, among them Jamie Kerstetter, Christina Lindney, Amanda Baker and Kristina Holst. The event paid 171 players and Christina Lindney received a min-cash, when she was eliminated in 73th place for $2,850:

Kristina Holst made it all the way to the final two tables, but was sent to the rail, when she moved all in from under the gun with and was called by Andrew McKenzie’s . The board did not help Holst, and she was out in 15th place with $15,334 in her pocket.
With 971,000 in chips Doug “WCGRider” Polk leads the final nine players into day 2, where they will play down to a winner.
