Event 10 Day 1E: First Break

$300 + $50 No Limit Hold’em Deep Stack

Blinds: 150/300 Ante 25

Players are on their first break of the day. Shortly before the break there was a three way all in. The flop was Th9c8c. A short stacked woman was all in with QsQd. Another player was all in with 8h8d for a flopped set of 8’s. Both were behind the third all in player who held 7h6c out of the big blind for a flopped straight. “How about a jack,” asked the woman, knowing that would giver her a bigger straight. “Pair the board,” said the player with the set. The player with the straight didn’t say anything but he didn’t have to. Everyone at the table knew what he wanted. No Jack. No paired board. The dealer listened to his silent request, putting out the 4d on the turn and the 2c on the river. The set of 8’s wasn’t out but the woman was.

There are 217 paid entrants as we start the break. Players have 15 minutes left to get into the tournament one last time.
