A player raised UTG+1 to 6,000, Candice Roig called from middle position, and the player on the button moved all in for 26,000.

The UTG+1 player folded, and Roig thought for a bit before she called with Ac9h. Her opponent turned over Jh9d, and he was dominated as he faced elimination.

The board came Qs5s3c2c2d, and Roig won the pot with her ace to eliminate her opponent from Flight C.

This flight will continue playing until there are 63 players left, and the survivors will make the money and advance to Day 2, which begins Sunday at 1:00 pm.
