With the board showing QcJh10h4c on the turn and about 12,500 already in the pot, Roy Rubin got it all in from UTG+1 for 59,500 with 4h4d for a set of fours. He needed to avoid a ten on the river to stay alive against the big blind’s 10d4s (two pair).

The river card was the As, and Rubin won the pot with his set to double up in chips.

Roy Rubin  –  131,500  (66 bb)

At another table, a player moved all in from middle position for about 16,000, and Nissim Vaknin called from the hijack with As9s. His opponent turned over KsQd, needing to improve to stay alive.

The board came Ad5c2s7sQc, and Vaknin won the pot with a flopped pair of aces to eliminate his opponent from Day 1B.

Nissim Vaknin  –  165,000  (83 bb)

The player on the button moved all in preflop for 10,600, and Chad Eveslage called from the big blind with Ac3c. The button turned over 9h8d, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 8s4c2c9s5h — the button paired his eight on the flop and turned two pair, but Eveslage rivered a five-high straight to win the pot and eliminate his opponent from Day 1B.

Chad Eveslage  –  110,000  (55 bb)
