Chris Moneymaker is doing well today, being seated at the ESPN feature table to play. But Super Bowl champion Emmitt Smith is not as he busted out in a bad way. By the river Smith had a full house with (10's/J's) but his opponent had a bigger full with (J's/10's), relieving Smith of the remainder of his short stack.

Noah Boeken ran into bad luck and watched his stack fall to 8,500 before his eyes. And when he decided to go for it with pocket 7's, his luck continued to leave as he was called by a player with pocket A's which held to the river. This sent the young Boeken off to the sidelines and out of the Main Event. And Jeffrey Lisandro had his pocket Aces cracked by a player who made a full house on the turn (Q's/4's). When Lisandro realized he was busted, he stormed out of the Amazon Room.

12:03 AM
On the last hands of the night, Brian Townsend went to war with his pocket J's, only to be called by a player with a straight, sending Townsend to the rail. Wendeen Eolis failed to improve her A 10 verses the full house made by the other player (K's/A's), forcing Eolis to clear her seat.

Approximately 1,700 players remain from Day 1D. Tomorrow we will play Day 2A which combines the survivors from Day 1A and 1B. Good night!
