With what looked like 23,300 in the pot on a board of , the big blind announced "all in" with a stack of about 32,000. His lone opponent, Patrick Roteman, called to put him at risk.
Roteman had the lead with the turned nut straight, but he was quite vulnerable against his opponent's wrap. The river was safe for Roteman and he took the pot to stack his opponent, putting his chip stack in six-figure territory.
Players are now on their first 20-minute break of the day.
Chris Baud raised to 1,300 from middle position, two players behind him called, and the big blind three-bet to 7,700. Baud shoved, the two late-position players folded, and the big blind called to put himself at risk.
Baud found himself trailing his opponent's aces and needed help from the deck in order to stack him. After the flop fell , Baud still needed help, but he picked up a flush draw on the turn and made his hand on the river to win the pot.
Aleksey Filatov raised to 800 from under the gun, the next player to act three-bet to 3,000, and Jeremy Ausmus made a pot-sized four-bet to 10,400 from the cutoff. The button and blinds folded, as did Filatov, and the three-bettor in early position called.
The flop came and the early-position player shoved. Ausmus called with the larger of the two stacks and both players tabled their hands.
Ausmus had the best of it with his aces and his opponent needed to improve in order to double up. The turn kept Ausmus in the lead and he improved to top set on the river to win the pot and stack his opponent.
