Conclusion of Event 1 Flight A

331 players joined this morning, but only 42 remain in Flight 1A.  Those 42 have just bagged and tagged for the night.  Flight B will commence tomorrow (Sunday Oct 4th) at 11am EST, and Flight C will be on Monday Oct. 5th at 11am EST.  All players making it through will return on Tuesday at noon to play out Day 2.

An Interesting Run Out for Clint Hubble

Clint Hubble shoved all in and the player directly to his left re-shoved all in for more.  All other players folded.

Hubble:  [ac][qc]
Opponent:  [10c][10h]

The flop came [as][qs][kc] giving Hubble the lead with his two pair.  That quickly changed when the [jd] fell on the turn, giving his opponent the straight.  But when the [ah] came on the river, it gave Hubble a full house and he was awarded a full double up.

A player at the table said, "That was sick."

Hubble replied, "I almost stood up when I saw that turn."

Hubble is now sitting with just around 65,000 in chips.

Matthew Wantman Eliminates Two

On a board reading [6h][4d][5d], a player in early position checked, Matthew Wantman checked, and a player in later position shoved all in.  With action back on the player in early position, he opted to move all in.  Matthew Wantman had them both covered and called.

Early Postion:  [Ad][2d]
Wantman: [9d][7d]
Late Position: [As][Kd]

Wantman sighed when he saw his opponent's ace high flush draw.  But when the [7s] turn and [9h] river hit the board, it was Wantman that ended up eliminating both players and scooping the pot to bring him close to nearly 90,000 in chips.
