PokerNews' Jesse Fullen Bags Big in Day 1 of Casino Employees Event

Livello 17 : Blinds 4,000/8,000, 8,000 ante
Jesse Fullen
Jesse Fullen

A total of 1,015 poker players packed the tables in the opening event of the 2023 World Series of Poker here at Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas, with 89 players bagging for Day 2.

The field, which was nearly 200 runners larger than last year's total, generated a prize pool of $426,300, with first place set to take home $75,535 and the first gold bracelet of this year's WSOP.

After 17 levels of play, Benson Tam bagged the chip lead (880,000), with PokerNews' own Jesse Fullen bagging the second biggest stack (861,000). Tam emerged mid-way through the day as one of the first players to cross the half a million chip mark while Fullen saw his stack grow steadily, making a run toward the top of the leaderboard at the end of the night.

The 2021 champion, James Barnett, also fell short of bagging with a Day 1 exit.

The under-the-gun player opened to 21,000 before seeing Anne Walby respond by going all in for her last 54,000. Action folded back around to the original raiser who called, putting Walby at risk.

Anne Walby: AQ
Under The Gun: KJ

The board ran out 10J6A5 giving Walby a full double and sending her jumping out of her chair excitedly screaming, "I stay! I stay!"

Four More Hands

Livello 17 : Blinds 4,000/8,000, 8,000 ante

With ten minutes left on the tournament clock, the staff has announced that four more hands will be played before play concludes for the night.

Burch Just Misses Day Two

Livello 17 : Blinds 4,000/8,000, 8,000 ante

James Sheeham and Ryan Burch were both all-in with nearly the exact same stack size.

James Sheeham: 98
Ryan Burch: AK

While it's unclear when the chips got in the middle, PokerNews picked up the action as the pot was pushed towards Sheeham on a board of 3K858.

After the dealer got an official count, Burch announced, "We're getting a bag! Two chips and a chair!"

The very next hand Burch's 89 was unable to best the AxJx, leaving him to take a walk just minutes from bag and tag for day two.

Jesse Fullen has just taken down a pot that may just see him end the day with the chip lead with 15 minutes of play left to go.

Terra Dorvall raised to 20,000 preflop and Fullen called in the big blind to see a flop of 383. After Fullen checked, Dorvall bet 30,000 and Fullen moved all in for about 200,000 effective. Dorvall called and had run into a monster.

Terra Dorvall: 1010
Jesse Fullen: 88

The board completed Q4 and Fullen scored a massive pot to move toward the chip lead.

Top Pair vs Two Pair Sends Another Player Home

Livello 17 : Blinds 4,000/8,000, 8,000 ante

With the pot standing at 58,000 the small blind lead into Sandra Faabeng, in the big blind, on a board of AJK for 35,000.

Faabeng had the small blind covered and elected to raise him all in for his remaining 66,000.

After some deliberation, the small blind called and tabled A5 against Faabeng's AJ.

The board ran out with a turn and a river of Q4; Faabeng claimed the pot and another tournament life.

McFadden Puts His Opponent in the Tank

Livello 17 : Blinds 4,000/8,000, 8,000 ante

On a board of 5A62 with over 100,000 already in the pot, Mike McFadden open-jammed the turn for 160,000. This sent the player on the button deep into the tank.

After a few minutes, the clock was called, and the button player was given a countdown. He eventually folded the AK face up, and McFadden dragged the pot after forcing a big fold.
