Loni Hui
Loni Hui

A player raised under the gun to 1,500, the cutoff called, and Loni Hui reraised from the button to 6,500. The UTG player moved all in for 26,900, and the cutoff folded.

Hui called with QdQc, and the UTG player turned over KdQs.

The board came 10s7h2dKh8s, and the UTG player spiked a king on the turn to win the pot and double thru Hui.

Loni Hui  –  46,000  (58 bb)

Jimmy Dunne
Jimmy Dunne

A couple hands later at the same table, after a flop of 4s3d2h, the small blind checked, Jimmy Dunne bet 2,500 from the big blind, and the small blind called.

The turn card was the 8s, the small blind checked, Dunne bet 4,000, and the small blind check-raised to 15,000. Dunne thought for a while before he called.

The river card paired the board with the 4d, the small blind checked, and Dunne moved all in for 32,100. The small blind tanked for a long time before he called with 6s6d for two pair.

But Dunne turned over 6h4c to win the pot with trip fours, doubling up in chips.

Jimmy Dunne  –  103,000  (129 bb)

Raminder Singh and Keld Curtis
Raminder Singh (left) and Keld Curtis

After a flop of QhQc3h, the player in the small blind checked, Event 14 champion Raminder Singh checked from middle position, and Keld Curtis bet 10,000 from Singh’s immediate left.

The small blind thought for a while before he folded, and Singh, asked, “Do you really have kings? Are you telling me you have kings?”

Singh thought for a little longer before he folded 10s10d face up.

Curtis let him off the hook by showing his cards — JsJh. A good fold for Singh as Curtis took the pot.

Keld Curtis  –  46,000  (77 bb)
Raminder Singh  –  50,000  (83 bb)

Flight D

With such a large field for the first break, the tournament staff is once again staggering the break so only half of the field takes its break at a time.

The first half of the field is now on their 15-minute break and will return at 8:00 pm to finish Level 4. That’s when the second half of the field will take their 15-minute break. Everyone will begin Level 5 at the same time.

Flight D is up to 506 entries (2,325 overall), and the prizepool is already worth more than $1.22 million, easily surpassing the $1 million guarantee.

Registration remains open with unlimited re-entries until 10:30 pm. There will be two more starting flights tomorrow (10:00 am and 6:00 pm), and Day 2 begins on Sunday at 1:00 pm.
