The under-the-gun player raises to 3,500, the UTG+1 player calls, and Richard Davis calls or raises from middle position.

Damien Simon moves all in from the small blind for 29,100, and the first two players fold. Davis calls with 9h9c, and Simon turns over JsJd.

If it hadn’t been all in before the flop, it was all but certain after the flop came Jc9s6h, giving both players a set. The turn was the 8s, the river card was the Qh, and Simon won the pot with his set of jacks to double up in chips.

Damien Simon  –  68,400  (43 bb)
Richard Davis  –  85,000  (53 bb)

With about 320 players remaining from a flight of 960, the average chip stack is around 60,000 (38 big blinds). This flight is playing down to the final 120 players, and everyone who bags chips for Day 2 will finish in the money.
