We heard a player groaning in disgust and when we got to the table we could see why. There was a massive pot in the middle of the table with the board showing . The player who was visibly upset, and eliminated, had for flopped top set. Another player had for flopped middle set and while not out was certainly crippled. Kal Raichura in the meantime had for a flopped straight and flush draw that hit the Broadway straight on the river. Raichura ended Day 1 as the chip leader and now here late on Day 2 finds himself once again sitting on top of the leader board, just slightly ahead of Konstantin Puchkov.
We are down to five tables - 45 players.
