It was a battle of the blinds between Jesse Cui in the small blind and the player in the big blind. They were heads-up on the turn with the board reading QdQcTsKc and Cui bet 10,000.

The big blind called and the river was the 5s. Cui bet 25,000 and the big blind quickly called, and was all in for about 13,000. Cui showed AdQs, good for trip queens and took the pot against the big blinds Kh5h.

Cui took the pot and moved over the 200,000 chip mark. He is the chip leader as the level comes to a close and there is one more level left in the night.

Jesse Cui – 206,000

Event 12: Alik Sitnyakovsky Doubles Through Eric Rivkin

$150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) 
Level 10: 500/1,000 with a 100 ante
Players Remaining: 53 of 239

Eric Rivkin raised to 2,500 from the hijack and Alik Sitnyakovsky defended his big blind. They were heads-up to a flop of 4d3d2s and Sitnyakovsky checked.

Rivkin bet 3,500 and Sitnyakovsky raised to 10,200. Rivkin called and Sitnyakovsky moved all in dark for 12,800. The turn was the Ah and Rivkin quickly called.

Sitnyakovsky showed 7d5d, good for a wheel, and had Rivkin’s AsQs drawing dead.

The river was an irrelevant 6c, which unnecessarily improved Sitnyakovsky to a seven-high straight, and he doubled up.

Sitnyakovsky and Rivkin were tablemates in last night’s $360 no limit hold’em final table and are back at it battling in Flight C of the $150 no-limit hold’em re-entry tonight.

Sitnyakovsky finished second in last night’s $360 no-limit hold’em and Rivkin took seventh place money home.

Alik Sitnyakovsky – 51,000
Eric Rivkin – 23,000

$150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) 
Level 8: 300/600 with a 75 ante
Players Remaining: 63 of 239

Late registration and re-entry has closed for the third and final flight of the day in the $150 no limit hold’em re-entry event. Flight C attracted 239 entries and there are currently 63 players remaining with another six levels to be played before bagging and tagging chips for the night.

Flight A had 190 entries and Flight B added another 236 entries to the field. Over the first three flights, there are officially 665 entries in the event and $79,800 in the prize pool thus far. With another three flights set to kick off on Tuesday, the field is on pace to shatter the $100,000 guaranteed prizepool.

22 players survived both flight A and flight B, giving 46 players a guaranteed seat in Day 2 of this event on Wednesday.

Glen Cressman bagged the 1A chip lead with 249,000, but Robertas Zebrauskis bagged the 1B chip lead with 310,000 and has the biggest stack of the 44 players moving forward.

Complete chip counts will be posted later tonight after Day 1C wraps up.

Late registration is available until the start of Level 7, around 2:20pm for Flight A, and unlimited re-entries are available during that time.
