Excitement, fireworks, and drinking beers to cap off the night - three things that the Fourth of July has in common with the World Series of Poker Main Event. While many Americans were celebrating the festivities outside today, there was a gathering of around 1,118 players from all around the world inside the Horseshoe Casino Las Vegas for Event #76: $10,000 WSOP Main Event No-Limit Hold'em World Championship.

When all the dust settled after an exciting five two-hour levels, there were 819 players advancing to Day 2abc on Friday, July 7th at 12 noon. Leading the pack was online grinder Jean-Pierre van der Spuy, who jumped into the lead in the dying moments of Day 1b with a stack of 287,000. Van der Spuy is a well-known online poker pro but has yet to record a live tournament score. The South African will be looking to make his first one count in the 2023 WSOP Main Event. Following in his footsteps is four-time bracelet winner Julien Martini with 284,700 chips along with Yuze Ding with 284,500; Ding battled at the same table as Martini throughout proceedings.

There were only two WSOP Main Event champions that jumped into the Day 1b field: Greg Raymer and Johnny Chan. The 2004 champion Raymer wasted little time getting to work by doubling his stack in the first few moments after sitting down. He finished the day with 201,400 chips coming off his latest Senior's tournament victory at the Golden Nugget. As for Chan, he strolled into the tournament area a little later but also built up his stack over the next couple of levels. Chan went on to bag 218,000 chips, and both of them will join the four previous Main Event winners from Day 1a.

No Shortage of Table-Talk

There was no lack of chatter in the tournament area from the drop of the hat with Martin Kabrhel getting involved from the very first hand. Kabrhel was up to his usual tricks with his mouth, however, his chips did less talking. Kabrhel opted to run an ace-high bluff in the second level of the day but was bounced by a rivered pair from Michael Demarco.

Another player that doesn't shy away from some table talk was the ever-so-popular Steven "Cuz" Buckner. After taking a bad beat in the early going, Buckner attempted to rebuild his stack throughout the day but was unable to get things rolling his way. Buckner was also among those that failed to advance to the next day.

Joining Buckner on the sidelines were Haven Werner, Santiago Plante, Galen Hall, and Jacqueline Burkhart - who belted out the US national anthem during a short stint on the feature table.

Jimmy D'Ambrosio spent a level on the feature table showing his outgoing character and chatted away but returned to the outer tables as one of the shorter stacks. His attempt at spinning up a stack looked promising - going from 2,500 all the way up to 32,000 - but his luck ended in the final level of the night when his pocket queens ran into Todd Hovenden's pocket aces. If that wasn't bad enough, two more aces on the flop spelled the end to D'Ambrosio's Main Event.

The day belonged to the silent killers on Day 1b as many other big names managed to maneuver their way through the field en route to bagging up a stack for Day 2abc in just a few days. The likes of Patrik Antonius (263,500) and Daniel Rezaei (216,200) quietly battled for the chip lead in the later stages of the day but were forced to settle for positions inside the top 20 instead.

Other high-rollers and household names advancing from Day 1b included Chris Brewer, Isaac Haxton, Jason Koon, and Scott Seiver. They will be joined by a couple of the young guns sneaking their way into the scene. Cole Ferraro (179,000) already has one WSOP bracelet to his name at the young age of 22 and is widely regarded as one of the best up-and-coming players in his generation. Frederic Normand (95,900) will also move on to Day 2 and is coming off multiple deep runs this summer.

With the excitement and fireworks out of the way, the night was capped off with the infamous 'Beer Level' as many players engaged in some alcoholic beverages in the final level of the night. "Cocktails!" was the most common exclamation in the last 60 minutes of the night as players rejoiced in making it one step further on their way to poker glory.

There are still two more starting flights waiting to take place over the next couple of days and they are expected to attract the most players. Day 1c will kick off at 12 noon local time on July 5th and will have the same structure as the previous flights with five two-hour levels and a 75-minute dinner break after Level 3.

The PokerNews live reporting team will be back on the tournament floor to bring you all of the exciting highlights and action from the day in what could be a historic WSOP Main Event.

Day 1b Has Concluded

Livello 5 : Blinds 300/600, 600 ante

All tables are bagging up and the remaining players have completed their Day 1b.

Stay tuned for an overview of chip counts and a full recap of the day.

YoH ViraL Eliminated On The Last Hand

Livello 5 : Blinds 300/600, 600 ante

Down to 3,500 chips, Johan Guilbert doubled up on one of the last hands against Clement Kerrien (AJ>KQ on 7A8104).

But on the very last hand of the day, he moved all in once again from the button for 7,000, after Giuseppe Galluzzo opened in early position to 1,300 and was called twice. To get rid of the two players who called, Galluzzo reraised to 24,000, and both of his opponents folded.

Johan Guilbert: 88
Giuseppe Galluzzo: AA

Johan Guilbert's stack decreased all day long, and was down to zero after the board KJ9Q2. He will not come back on Day 2.

Delmas Ditches his Aces

Livello 5 : Blinds 300/600, 600 ante

After an open from Adrien Delmas, the hijack three-bet to 3,500, and David Michel on the button just called. Then Delmas put in the four-bet to 10,000, and only Michel made the call as the original three-better got out of the way.

The flop came out 985, and Delmas continued for 10,000, and Michel made the call to see the 7 on the turn.

Both players then decided to check to the J on the river, and Delmas led out again for 5,000. But then Michel raised him to 25,000, and Delmas went briefly into the tank.

After about 15 seconds, he announced a fold and tossed AA into the muck.

"Wow, how many times are you going to fold aces, my friend?" someone at the table asked him, implying he has folded them several times already.

"Every time, I guess," Delmas replied dryly, and then the table began a discussion as to if Michel bluffed him or not, but to no avail.
