We've just had our first two matches end simultaneously.
Over on Table 4, Noah Schwartz opened the pot to 15,000 from the button, and Bryn Kenney moved all in on a three-bet shove. Schwartz considered for a good long while, but he eventually made the call with a chance at the knockout. Kenney, though short-stacked, was well ahead.
One by one, the dealer placed the flop on board: ... ... ...
Schwartz flopped the flush draw, and he only needed one card to find it. The dropped on fourth street, and Schwartz let out a quiet, "Sorry, Bryn." Kenney was drawing dead now, and the river was a mere formality. From this pairing, it's Schwartz moving on with 248,000 chips.
And at Table 2, Michael Mizrachi has just polished off the rest of Kent Lundmark. All the money got in on a flop, and Mizrachi's was ahead of Lundmark's . The turn and river did nothing to improve the latter's plight, and Mizrachi has advanced with a healthy stack of 564,000.
