Cordeiro Eliminated as Night Ends

Nível 16 : 4,000/8,000, 8,000 ante
Marle Cordeiro

Martin Ryan raised the button to 32,000 and Marle Cordeiro three-bet from the small blind to 125,000. The big blind quickly folded and Ryan made the call.

The dealer spread a flop of {8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and Cordeiro put in a continuation bet of 65,000. Ryan raised to 200,000 and Cordeiro went into the tank for about a minute before jamming her stack of just over 300,000 in the middle. Ryan made the call and both hands were tabled.

Marle Cordeiro: {q-Spades}{q-Hearts}
Martin Ryan: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

Both players flopped an overpair but Cordeiro was in the lead with pocket queens. The turn {q-Clubs} completed Ryan's flush but still gave Cordeiro some outs to make a full house. The river {3-Diamonds} however, was not what Cordeiro needed and she was eliminated just as the night finished.

Song the New Chip Leader

Nível 11 : 1,000/2,500, 2,500 ante
Kevin Song

The action was picked up preflop when Kevin Song called the all-in from a player who was short stacked to put the player at risk for his tournament life.

Opponent: {a-Clubs}{5-Clubs}
Kevin Song: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}

Song's opponent needed help but the board ran out {2-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{a-Hearts}{3-Spades} and with that pot there hasn't been a bigger stack seen in the tournament.

Song appears to be the chip leader here in Day 1 so far, and the bracelet winner will be looking to make a deep run.
