Event 1 Day 1E: Battle of the Blinds

$100 + $25 No Limit Hold’Em Deep Stack

Running a big hand into a bigger hand late in a tournament is a tough situation, especially when both hands are in the blinds. Sometimes the dealer bails you out.

The 1-seat on Table 35 three-bet an early position raise from the small blind with Ts Td before the big blind moved all-in with Qs Qd. The original raiser got out the way and the 1-seat was halfway out of his chair when the dealer pealed off the Jd Th 3s flop. He sat back down as the 2-seat cut out enough chips to pay off 66,000 and change.

One final left in the day and 30 remain with blinds at 1.2k/2.4k/300 ante.
