Day One Wraps
Sam Trickett ends Day 1 as leader
The final level is in the books for the Big One for One Drop Day 1. There were a few more elimination including Jason Mercier, Dan Smith, and Rono Lo.
It was a bad level for Germany as Niklas Heinecker was run out by Phil Ivey when his A♦ 9♠ was dominated by A♣ K♦.
The German group was a favorite selection to win but now just two remain of the starting six, Tobias Reinkemeier and Christop Vogelsang are left holding the flag.
Two Brits sit atop the chip counts with Sam Trickett leading the way followed by Tom Hall. Ivey isn’t far behind the leader but it is still a long way till the end.
Players return for Day 2 at 1pm for another nine levels.

Really not happy with 1m stack at end of day 1. Last 2 levels were brutal. Need some serious run-good for day 2 #brokechips— Jean-Robert Bellande (@BrokeLivingJRB) June 30, 2014
