Helander Wins the Flip

• Level 24: 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante

MIchael Helander was in late position and was faced with an all-in bet from a middle-position player for 450,000. Helander then decided to reshove all in for 675,000. The rest of the players quickly got out of their way and the cards were tabled.

Opponent: {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}
Helander: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}

The board runout of {10-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{k-Spades}{2-Spades} gave Helander top two pair and he took the pot, which gave him an almost complete double to break a million chips.

Boone Scores Early Double-Up with Ace High

blaisebourgeois • Level 23: 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante

In a four-way pot with 255,000 chips in the middle on a {2-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} flop, it checked around to Roberto Bendeck on the button, who made it 125,000. Shannon Boone, who was in the big blind, went all in for her last 315,000 chips. Bendeck called after the other two players folded.

Shannon Boone: {a-Spades}{5-Diamonds}
Roberto Bendeck: {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}

Though Bendeck was a slight favorite on the flop with his flush draw, the board ran out {6-Spades}{10-Diamonds} to give Boone more than a full double-up.

Pinho Out-Flips Luckert to Score KO

NicholasBaltz • Level 23: 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante

Ryan Luckert was all in preflop for his last 250,000 against Luis Pinho.

Ryan Luckert: {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}
Luis Pinho: {k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}

There was a dealer error on the flop as four cards came out of {5-Hearts}{10-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}, and the floor was called. The four cards were mixed up and a new burn was randomly selected which was the {5-Diamonds}.

So the flop was officially {5-Hearts}{10-Spades}{k-Clubs} to pair Pinho, and then the {8-Spades} turn and {j-Diamonds} river changed nothing and Luckert was eliminated.

Cuevasgarcia Nearly Triples Up on Very First Hand, Lu Out

blaisebourgeois • Level 23: 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante

With both of his opponents at 135,000 chips or less, Rene Wenzel moved all in from the button. Ayden Lu called and said "I came to play one hand." Jamie Cuevasgarcia said "Me too," and called.

Ayden Lu: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}
Jamie Cuevasgarcia {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Rene Wenzel: {a-Clubs}{3-Hearts}

Lu went way out in front on the {q-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} flop but he was forced to feel maximum pain when the {q-Spades} came on the turn.

The {k-Hearts} came on the river to give Cuevasgarcia a full house and he would go from 135,000 to 375,000 on the first hand of the second day.
