Max Pescatori busted just shy of the money on Day 1a, however, the Italian has now jumped up to half a million in chips thanks to winning a massive pot off Sebastian Kos.
Andreas Walnum had already been all in while Kos and Pescatori played for a massive side pot. Kos bet the pot on the river and Pescatori reluctantly called.
Kos tabled and Pescatori had that beat with for the second nut flush. Walnum was eliminated with the and the dealer also already announced the seat open of Kos.
"He can only bet the pot, I didn't raise, I just called," Pescatori said and indeed Kos had a few chips behind. Those would vanish in the very next hand. Roman Cieslik, Andrej Isjurow and Jessica Teusl were also among the first bustouts in the money.
