Chuck Swansfeger raised under the gun, the player in the small blind moved all in for 35,500, and Swansfeger called with 10s10h. The small blind turned over 10c9c, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came AsQc8hKs6h — the small blind turned a gutshot straight draw, but improved no further. Swansfeger won the pot with his pocket tens to eliminate his opponent from the tournament.

Chuck Swansfeger  –  100,000  (40 bb)

The next hand at the same table, the UTG+1 player raised to 7,000, Lucinda Martinez moved all in from the small blind for 54,000, and the UTG+1 player called with AdJd.

Martinez turned over AhQd, and needed her hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came AsJh9dKhKs — the UTG+1 player paired his jack on the flop to take the lead, but he was counterfeited by the pair of kings that fell on the turn and river.

Both players finished with two pair, aces and kings, but Martinez avoided a chop with her queen kicker to win the entire pot to double up in chips.

Lucinda Martinez  –  113,000  (45 bb)

With about 207 players remaining, the average chip stack is around 100,000 (40 big blinds). There is about one hour remaining before the surviving players in Day 1C bag up for the night.
