A player moved all in from the hijack for 13,000, Kyle Kitagawa reraised from the cutoff to 28,000, and everyone else folded.

The short stack turned over Ac2c, and needed to improve to stay alive against Kitagawa’s AdJd.

The board came 10d8d4c6cKd, and Kitagawa made an unnecessary flush on the river to win the pot and eliminate his opponent from Day 1A.

Kyle Kitagawa  –  118,000  (59 bb)

Action is scheduled to continue tonight until the end of Level 10, around 11:20 pm.
