Michael Rocco Leads the Final 68 Players

Level 12: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Michael Rocco
The Season XIII WPT World Championship presented by partypoker and BorgataPoker continued on Sunday as 166 Day 1 survivors (along with five Day 2 entries) were whittled down to just 68 hopefuls, each looking to become the WPT World Champion and collect the $973,683 first-place prize.

Leading the way into Day 2 is Michael Rocco (pictured) with 439,500. Also bagging big stacks were Champions Club member Jonathan Jaffe (428,000), Corey Hochman (398,000), Brian Murphy (380,500), Simon Lam (337,500), Champions Club member Konstantinos Nanos (326,000), Brian Yoon (309,500), Sang Kim (304,500), and defending WPT World Champion Keven Stammen (303,000).

Others who survived include Jake Schindler (292,500), David Tuthill (292,000), WPT Raw Deal Analyst (260,000), and Champions Club members Scott Clements (244,000), Harry Arutyunyan (220,500), Matt Salsberg (209,500), Lee Markholt (129,000), Carlos Mortensen (88,500), Ravi Raghavan (71,500), and Jonathan Little (60,500).

Among those who failed to survive the day include Champions Club members Darren Elias and Anthony Zinno. With Elias' elimination, Zinno locked up Season XIII WPT Player of the Year.

Day 3 is scheduled to start tomorrow (Monday) at 12:00 noon ET, so be sure to tune back in tomorrow for updates on all of the action.

Byron Kaverman Eliminated by Jonathan Jaffe

Level 12: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Byron Kaverman
In the final hand of the night, Jonathan Jaffe raises to 6,000, and Ray Qartomy says, "When I said I wasn't gonna play another hand, I have to play this one." Qartomy calls, and then Byron Kaverman (pictured) reraises to 22,000.

Jaffe reraises to about 60,000, and Qartomy folds. Kaverman moves all in for maybe a little bit more, and Jaffe calls with 7heart7club. Kaverman turns over AspadeKheart, and he needs to improve to stay alive.

The board comes Jspade6diamond4club9diamond4heart, and the pocket sevens hold up for Jaffe to win the pot and eliminate Kaverman from the tournament in the final hand of Day 2.

"When Ray Goes All In, You'd Better Fold."

Level 12: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

With the board showing Jheart8diamond6diamond7club on the turn and about 75,000 in the pot, Jonathan Jaffe checks from middle position, and Ray Qartomy moves all in from the hijack for about 94,000.

While Jaffe goes into the tank, Qartomy starts talking. "This is my last hand. Win or lose, I'm not playing another hand." (It's worth noting that the end of the day is near, and this table will only be playing one more hand before bagging chips for the night.)

Jaffe eventually folds, and Qartomy proudly shows Jclub8club for top two pair. Qartomy says, "When Ray goes all in, you'd better fold."

Ray Qartomy  -  165,000  (68 bb)
Jonathan Jaffe  -  327,000  (136 bb)

Matthew Diehl Eliminated by Tony Dunst

Level 12: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Matthew Diehl raises from the cutoff to 5,000, WPT Raw Deal Analyst Tony Dunst reraises from the button to 12,000, and Diehl moves all in for about 75,000.

Dunst calls with KheartKclub, and Diehl turns over 5spade5diamond. Diehl needs to improve to stay alive.

The board comes Kspade7club6club2diamondQspade, and Dunst wins the pot with a set of kings to eliminate Diehl from the tournament.

Dominik Nitsche
Leonard Benitez opens to 6,000 from middle position, Michael Rocco calls from the hijack, Scott Clements calls from the button, and Champions Club member Dominik Nitsche (pictured) three-bets all in from the big blind for 45,800. Only Rocco calls.

Rocco:  10heart10club
Nitsche:  AheartJclub

The board runs out 4club2diamond2heart9spade7heart, no help to Nitsche, securing the pot for Rocco.

Mukul Pahuja Eliminated by Konstantinos Nanos

Level 12: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Mukul Pahuja raises to 5,500 from middle position and Konstantinos Nanos three-bets to 14,500 on the button. Action folds back to Pahuja who takes a moment before moving all in for 67,600. 

Nanos gets an exact count on Pahuja's stack and then calls. Nanos shows AdiamondKspade and is in the lead against Pahuja's Theart9heart

Pahuja takes the lead on a flop of JclubTdiamond2diamond. The turn is the 3diamond, but the river is the Kclub to give Nanos a pair of kings, the pot and a knockout of a former WPT Player of the Year. 

Konstantinos Nanos - 309,000
Mukul Pahuja - Eliminated

David Tuthill vs. Simon Lam

Level 12: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

David Tuthill raises from the cutoff and Simon Lam calls from the small blind.

The flop is AheartJheart2spade and Lam checks to Tuthill who bets 5,500. Lam calls, the 4diamond lands on the turn, and Lam checks. Tuthill bets 13,500, Lam calls again, and the 5spade river completes the board. Lam checks and Tuthill checks behind.

Lam tables AclubJdiamond for top two pair, Tuthill mucks, and Lam collects the pot.

Simon Lam - 386,000 (160 bb)

Harry Arutyunyan Shows a Bluff

Level 12: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Harry Arutyunyan raises to 5,000 from the hijack and is called by Josh Spiegelman on the button and Tony Dunst out of the big blind. 

They take a flop of 6spade3heart2club and Dunst checks. Arutyunyan bets 8,000 and Spiegelman calls. Dunst check-raises to 28,000 and Arutyunyan tanks for a few moments before putting in a three-bet to 70,000. Spiegelman folds and Dunst goes into the tank. 

"I guess I fold," said Dunst, who tosses his hand into the muck. 

Arutyunyan shows JheartTdiamond before he gets pushed the pot.
