Cheri Beatty’s stack was up and down throughout the day as she bounced to three different tables after they broke. She hit her high point before getting mixed up with Yves Fequiere.

Beatty opened the action and he called in the small blind to see the Tc6c2s flop. Fequiere check/called a flop bet then check/called against after the Js turn. He led out after the 4d river and Beatty must have sensed something was up.

She called with aces but they were no good when she saw Fequiere chased with 6h4h. The hand dropped her under 30,000 and she was gone soon after when her sevens couldn’t outrace AsJs.

Registration closed on the fifth flight of Event 1 leaving one more opportunity tonight at 6pm.

The unofficial entrant count for Flight E is sitting at 605 but we’re waiting on the official accounting to be complete. That would put the prize pool over $610,000 with a full flight to run it up.

Jon Borenstein was one of those late entrants, hopping in the game before the second break. He has some success here and it gave him momentum for a nice year-long run. Borenstein made an inaugural Big 4 final table last year and finished third in the $2,650 Freezeout then followed that up with a third place in this event during the 2016 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown in March.collected the biggest score of his career when he finished eighth in the massive, massive-field WSOP Colossus II event for more than $115,000.

Borenstein finished up a great 12-month run when he collected the biggest score of his career with an eighth place finish in the massive, massive-field WSOP Colossus II event for more than $115,000.
