Freddy Deeb got it all in with KcJc against his opponent’s Ax8x at some point on a board of 5x4c3cKx2x — Deeb flopped a flush draw and turned a pair of kings, but his opponent rivered a five-high straight to win the pot and eliminate Deeb from Day 1A.

Earlier today, Deeb lost two big pots with pocket kings, and this time a pair of kings was still not good enough. It just wasn’t Deeb’s day to play pairs of kings.

Freddy Deeb  –  Eliminated

With about 270 players remaining from a Day 1A field of 645, the average chip stack is about 95,500 (64 big blinds). Action will continue tonight until the end of Level 10, around 11:15 pm.
