Ari Oxman moved all in under the gun for 10,500, the player in the cutoff reraised to about 25,000, and everyone else folded.

Oxman turned over AcJc, and needed to improve to stay alive against his opponent’s KsKc.

The board came Ad5d4c7h5h, and Oxman paired his ace on the flop to win the pot and double up in chips.

Ari Oxman  –  26,000  (13 bb)

Action is scheduled to continue tonight until the end of Level 10, around 11:15 pm. Day 1B begins tomorrow at 11:00 am.
