Gal Yifrach was all in preflop from the button against two other players, and the flop came Qd10d7d. The big blind checked, and Li pan checked from the cutoff.

The turn card was the 3d, putting four diamonds on the board, and both players checked. The river card was the 4h, and they checked again.

Pan:  Ac7s  (pair of sevens)
Big Blind:  5s5h  (pair of fives)
Yifrach:  Ah9h  (ace high)

Since no player had a diamond in their hand, Pan won the pot with his flopped pair of sevens to eliminate Yifrach from Day 1A.

Li Pan  –  75,000  (50 bb)
Gal Yifrach  –  Eliminated
