Morris Dadoun (pictured) led the way for some time on Day 1a and flew into Day 2 with a great chip lead. Not bad work for the 84-year-old live qualifier who won a ticket out in Toronto and arrived in Blue Jays garb to take on the best. Dadoun had some dramatic table moves across both his days at the felt and took on Daniel Negreanu on Day 1a among others.
We caught up with Dadoun's eventual conqueror, Belgian pro Davidi Kitai between hands and he told us how unlucky Dadoun had been to bust.
"He was all-in with against my and I won to double-up, then he had three big blinds and he was called three ways when he was all-in preflop. The board came and I bet on the river. He lost with to . I feel a little bit ashamed I took him out, he was really nice!"
