The latest two casualties on Day 1a include Caitlin Hall and Iliodoros Kamatakis.
The latter has had a tough first few levels, but bounced back to get to 15,000. However, his pocket kings were cracked as Dmitry Yurasov flopped a straight and held up to send the Greek to the rail.
As for Hall, she was down to just 7,500 chips and raised to 525 from the button. Michael Ho called in the small blind and Vladimir Troyanovskiy three-bet to 2,050 from the big blind. Hall shoved and Ho folded, Troyanovskiy called.
The board came and the Russian made a straight, Troyanovskiy remained below starting stack though.
