A player from under the gun found himself all in and at risk against Alexis Gilbard out of the big blind.
Under the Gun Player:
Though Gilbard had her opponent covered she was well behind. She was unable to find any help on the flop or the turn. The river, however, saw her hit one of her two outs, sending her opponent home in brutal fashion.
A player moved all in for 37,500 from middle position and action folded around to Huy Nguyen in the big blind. Nguyen went into the tank, asking for an exact count of his opponent's stack. He did eventually make the call to put the middle position player at risk.
Middle Position Player:
Nguyen had his opponent dominated and looked set to scoop a decently large pot. Nothing changed on the flop or the turn. The river too was clean for Nguyen, eliminating the player in middle position short of the money.
With late registration closed and eliminations coming at a lightning quick pace, the last few tables in Bally's have been broken and the remaining players transferred to Paris to combine with the rest of the field.
Perry Altensey moved all in for 23,000 from middle position and was called by a player in late position. One seat over from the caller, another late position player re-jammed for 67,000. Action folded back around to the late position caller, who, after some deliberation, folded.
Late Position Player:
Altensey was at risk and behind but the flop was an interesting one, improving the late position player to a set but also giving Altensey an open ended straight draw as well as the possibility of a backdoor flush.
The turn was gin for Altensey, who now had broadway and would only need to avoid the board pairing on the river to secure a triple up. The river was clean for Altensey, who in the space of one hand moved from being a shorty with less than ten big blinds to sitting on a fairly comfortable stack.
