Event 1 Day 1A: First Break of the Day

The last level before the close of registration and re-entry always brings an increase in activity as short-stacked players need to make a decision. Most will make aggressive moves to double up or bust that buy-in to re-enter for a fresh stack. This produced some big action as 9h2h cracked pocket Kings on one table while another table had flopped quad Queens with QSTH against Aces.

As players went on their first break of the day, they were presented with one more option by the tournament staff. They could surrender their remaining stack and re-enter before the end of the break. It does not look like any chose this option and the remaining players are now on a 15-minute break.
