No, you're not about to get Fricke rolled. Gobboboy really does lead the field in the $2,500 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball event.

Fricke, the former Aussie Millions runner up closed the opening day with 66,000 chips ahead of Arturo Diaz on 50,200, Justin Bonomo on 49,500 and Tommy Hang on 43,000. All told, 120 of the 320 starters will be back for day 2 including Daniel Negreanu, Mike Matusow, Greg Raymer and Joe Hachem.

Despite being down to just 700 chips at one stage, is still in. Durrrr wasn't impressed to be on the wrong end of a slowroll and was equally underwhelmed by his opponent's play. He tweeted, “Finished day w/ 11.6k. If I win this the guy who didn't bust me w/ 76432 might need to go into hiding.”

Phil Hellmuth's quest for bracelet number 12 continues as he busted out early on. Other notables to join the Poker Brat on the rail were John Juanda, Jennifer Harman and Nick Schulman.
