Ivey Second in Chips After Day 1 in Event #43: $50,000 Poker Players Championship

The first day of one of the most anticipated events of the 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP) wrapped up early Monday morning in the form of Event #43: $50,000 Poker Players Championship, a prestigious mixed game tournament that never fails to bring in poker's best and brightest.

One of the brightest of them all, ten-time bracelet winner Phil Ivey, who yesterday bubbled the $250,000 Super High Roller, ended the day second in chips with 944,500 among the 54 remaining players in no small part thanks to a massive call he made in a pot-limit Omaha hand against 2013 PPC champion Matthew Ashton. The only player to bag more chips than Ivey was Josh Arieh (1,088,000), who is looking for his second bracelet of the summer as he continues to pad his Poker Hall of Fame resume.

Two-time defending champion Dan "Jungleman" Cates, who showed up at the start of Day 1 in full costume and makeup dressed as the Terminator, came close to bowing out early but managed to bounce back to continue his quest for a historic three-peat.

Also among the 73 runners on Day 1 of the single-entry event were recent bracelet winners David "ODB" Baker, Shaun Deeb and John Monnette.

Other bracelet winners like Scott Seiver, Jeremy Ausmus, Julien Martini, Joe Cassidy and Christopher Vitch and Jennifer Harman, who PokerNews spoke to earlier in the series, are also chasing another, while the likes of Viktor Blom, Jared Bleznick and Alexander Wilkinson are all after a first piece of WSOP hardware.

Day 1 Action

All eyes were on Cates as he made his dramatic Terminator cosplay entrance and spoke in short monotone utterances, a bit he maintained throughout the day to the amusement of players including Negreanu, who filmed the spectacle for his vlog viewers.

The Terminator's time in the Paris ballroom was almost short-lived as he took a hit from Scott Seiver in the first level of play before losing even more in the coming levels. Without breaking character, Cates was able to climb back and will return to continue his historic run on Day 2, perhaps in a new Terminator-themed get-up.

Not everyone was as lucky as Cates. Five-time bracelet winner Eli Elezra was the first elimination of the day, and fellow Poker Hall of Famers Negreanu and John Hennigan also fell. Other players who weren't fortunate enough to bag include Yuval Bronshtein, Ralph Perry, Tamon Nakamura, Michael Rodrigues and recent bracelet winners Ben Lamb, Nick Schulman and "best Badeucey player in the world" Chad Eveslage.

One of the biggest stories of the day was the appearance of Chris Moneymaker 20 years after his 2003 Main Event victory that ignited the Poker Boom. It's the Poker Hall of Famer's first time playing the PPC as he looks for his tenth cash since winning $2.5 million two decades ago in the Main Event.

Many of the younger players in the field grew up in the shadow of Moneymaker, and some of them voiced their gratitude for the perfectly named poker superstar. Toward the end of the evening, Philip Sternheimer told the table about a time Moneymaker bluffed him in a celebrity game shortly after his 2003 victory.

"That was the best moment of my life at the time," reflected Sternheimer. "And here we are 19 years later."

Day 2 action will resume at 1:00 p.m. local time on June 19 on Level 7. Plenty of players are still likely to join the field with late registration open for three levels on Day 2, so expect to see plenty more stars at the tables.

Stay tuned as the PokerNews live reporting team will be back on-site tomorrow here at Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas ahead of the crowning of the next PPC champion.

Day 1 Has Ended

Livello 6

Day 1 of Event #43: $50,000 Poker Players Championship has wrapped up after six 100-minute levels of play. Stay tuned for chip counts and a full recap of the day's action.

Arieh Eliminates Sternheimer

Josh Arieh

No-Limit Hold 'em

After Philip Sternheimer raised to 7,500 in the cutoff and got called by Brian Yoon on the button, Josh Arieh three-bet to 26,000 in the big blind.

Sternheimer then moved all in for 160,000 and after Yoon folded and Arieh though for a minute or so, he made the call to put Sternheimer at risk.

Philip Sternheimer: QQ
Josh Arieh: A10

The board came 322A9, pairing Arieh's ace on the turn to eliminate Sternheimer, who frustratedly knocked over his chair as he left the tournament area.

With the win, Arieh may have taken the chip lead from Phil Ivey just before the end of Day 1.

Yockey Leads River

No Limit Hold 'em

The action folded to Paul Volpe on the button who opened to 7,000. The small blind folded and Bryce Yockey defended his big blind.

The 283 flop landed and Yockey check-called a bet of 8,000. The 7 turn brought in the flush and action then checked through.

The 6 river brought in even more draws and Yockey went into the tank for a moment before putting out a bet of 30,000. Volpe didn't think for long before tossing his cards into the muck. Yockey added a solid pot to his already healthy stack as the last hands of the night were delt.

Deeb Doubles Through Wang

Livello 6
Shaun Deeb
Shaun Deeb

No Limit Hold 'em

Action folded to Shaun Deeb in late position who opened to 7,500. Next to act was Jacky Wang on the button, who three-bet to 30,000. Deeb then four-bet ripped it for 67,000, and Wang called.

The cards hit their backs.

Shaun Deeb: KK
Jacky Wang: JJ

The flop came KAQ. "That's not a good flop," Deeb said as he hit a set but Wang still had a gutter. No sweat though as the turn fell a 3 and the river an 8. Deeb got the pure double and Wang took a hit to his healthy stack.
