Harry Silver was all in from the small blind for 27,500 with AdJh, and he was facing elimination against the AhAc of James Calderaro (UTG+1).

Silver stood up to leave as if he were expecting the knockout, and Calderaro jokingly called him out on it.

“Don’t use that old ‘Walking Away’ trick!”

Sure enough, the board came Qh10h7sKh6d, and Silver turned an ace-high straight to win the pot and double up in chips.

Silver said, “Sorry about the suckout.”

Once again, Calderaro smiled and called him out. “You’re not sorry. You’re definitely not sorry.”

Harry Silver  –  59,000  (24 bb)
James Calderaro  –  80,000  (32 bb)

With about 135 players remaining, the average chip stack is about 76,500 (31 big blinds), and this flight will play as long as it takes to reach the final 65 players. The survivors at the end of this flight will make the money and advance to Day 2, which begins Sunday at 1:00 pm.
