After a flop of KhQh7d, Malachi Wiggs bet 6,500 from UTG+1, Aaron Massey moved all in from the button for about 18,000, and Wiggs called with Kd5d for a pair of kings. Massey turned over 9h7h for a pair of sevens with a heart flush draw, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the 2d, the river was the 3c, and Wiggs won the pot with his pair of kings to eliminate Massey from Day 1B.

Malachi Wiggs  –  85,000  (85 bb)
Aaron Massey  –  Eliminated

Tristan Wade raised UTG+1 to 2,500, Jorge Aristizabal raised from the cutoff to 8,000, and Perry Shiao moved all in from the button for about 33,000.

Wade folded, and Aristizibal called with QsQh. Shiao turned over 9s9d, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 10c4h3d5sAc, and the pocket queens held up for Aristizabal to win the pot and eliminate Shiao from Day 1B.

Jorge Aristizabal  –  94,000  (94 bb)
Perry Shiao  –  Eliminated
