WIth $30,000 in starting chips and one of the best structures on the circuit its no suprise that 317 of the 507 entrants survived Day 1. There was one hand that really stood out during the first day of poker action. Nick Schulman on a Ks-5s-5d-4s-2s board, was thrilled to get all of his chips into the center with 5c-5h, that is until his opponent flipped over the As-3s for a runner-runner straight flush. The hand crippled Schulman, and he was eliminated shortly thereafter.

A number of big name player fell to the rail and joined Schulman to discuss their various eliminations. Among them were Phil Ivey, Barry Greenstein, Gavin Smith, Erick Lindgren and Jonathan Little.

Among those who did surive, here are a few of the chip leaders: Joe Sebok, Vanessa Rousso, Justin Bonomo, and John “the razor” Phan. Play continues today, and all the action can be followed at www.theborgata.com
