Soulier Looking to go Back-to-Back

Fabrice Soulier won this event last year - can he do it again?

Day 1 of Event 32: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. has come to an end, and our chip leader is Fabrice Soulier, who won this event last year. Soulier amassed a large stack before the thirty-minute “dinner break,” and never looked back. He heads to Day 2 as the leader of the pack with 146,300 chips, and is looking to make his sixth final table in his WSOP career.

Other players who were able to amass a large stack on Day 1 include Allen Bari (96,300), Brandon Shack-Harris (93,900), Michael Binger (92,600), David Bach (91,700), and Steve Zolotow (86,000).

A total of 178 players signed up for Event 32, generating a total prize pool of $1,673,200. Twenty-four players are guaranteed at least $16,246, everyone who makes the final table will earn a minimum of $45,360, and the winner will bank $451,779, along with the prestigious gold bracelet.

There were plenty of notables who were unable to make it out of Day 1 unfortunately, and the list includes Xuan Liu, Shannon Shorr, David Benyamine, Vladimir Shchmelev, Barry Greenstein, Brendan Taylor, Annie Duke, Jonathan Duhamel, and Luke Schwartz.

Among the leaders is - you guessed it - Phil Ivey. Ivey, who’s already made three final tables this week, scooped a big pot in a Stud 8 hand towards the end of the night. We picked up the action on sixth street, where Ivey’s board read {4-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{3-Spades}{8-Clubs}, and he fired a bet into Dan Shak and Josh Arieh. Both players called. Ivey fired another bet on seventh, only Arieh called, and Ivey tabled {a-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} for a full house. His opponents mucked, and Ivey scooped the pot.

Day 2 will begin tomorrow at 2 p.m. local time, and we’ll play ten levels unless we reach a final table – which is unlikely. Stay locked into PokerNews for this and every event at the 2012 World Series of Poker.

For now, good night from Las Vegas!

Singer Sinks a Bit

Posted 2012-06-17 GMT-6

Limit Hold'em

David Singer and an opponent took a flop of {5-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. Singer check-called a bet, and the turn brought the {7-Spades}. Singer led out, and his opponent called.

Another seven - the {7-Diamonds} - completed the board, and Singer led again. His opponent called.

"Ace," Singer announced.

"Which one?" his opponent asked.

Singer showed {a-}{6-}, but his opponent had {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs}, and won the pot.
