Solomon Yi

Hand #1:

There is around 25,000 in the middle, and two players looking at the 8♠7♣2♣310 board. The player in the cutoff shoves all in for around 11,500, and Solomon Yi goes into the tank.

Nearly two minutes pass before Yi tosses in a chip to call. The cutoff shows K♣6♣ for a broken flush draw, and Yi turns over JJ for a pair of jacks to win the hand, and eliminate his opponent from play.

Solomon Yi - 60,000

Mike Azzaro - Two Seat, in between Jovy Ounthongdy and Brad St. Vincent
Hand #2:

While Yi was busy scooping a pot, at the neighboring table, Mike Azzaro also sent an opponent home.  The player stood up, slammed the table, and quickly walked away from the table.

The board read J6♣6K8, and Azzaro had 8♠6♠ sitting in front of him, good for a full house.

The chatter at the table filled in the rest of the story.  Apparently, Azzaro's opponent held X6, having also flopped trip sixes, and rivering the flush.  But Azzaro hit the miracle card on the river to give him a full house to eliminate his opponent from play.

Mike Azzaro - 60,000
