Day 1 Ends With Colin Maneval in the Lead

Event 3: $500 + $60 No Limit

During the final few hands of the night, Dan Retallick three-bet from the button, his opponent moved all in from middle position with K K, and Retallick called with Q Q.

The board came Q J 8 4 7, and Retallick flopped a set of queens to win the pot and bust his opponent. When play ended a few minutes later, Retallick had 346,000.

Day 1 ends with 23 players, and Colin Maneval -- who went from the bottom to the top of the counts during the money bubble period -- finishes as the chipleader. The full list of chip counts will be posted overnight, but here is an unofficial list of some counts we got off the chip bags:
