In Hand #5 of hand-for-hand play, there were two all-in hands that waited for action to complete at all of the other tables before revealing their cards.

In the second of those two hands, the player in the hijack raised, Carlo Rodriguez moves all in from the big blind, and the hijack called all in for roughly 150,000 with QsQc.

Rodriguez turned over AcQd, and the hijack needed his queens to hold to stay alive.

The board came 9d9h5hAs7h, and Rodriguez paired his ace on the turn to win the pot, eliminate his opponent on the Money Bubble, and catapult into the chip lead for this starting flight.

Carlo Rodriguez  –  587,000  (98 bb)

The remaining 57 players are bagging and tagging their chips for Day 2, which begins on Sunday at 1:00 pm.
