Event 1: $1,100 No Limit Hold'em

Chips Soothe the Savage Beast

The action folded around to Ben Savage who raised to 3,500 preflop, only to see an opponent call from the big blind to go heads-up to a flop that read {7-Spades}{10-Spades}{3-Hearts}.

The big blind fired out 6,500 and Savage smooth-called, then after dealer produced the {4-Spades} on the turn, Savage called the opponent's all in bet and the cards were rolled up:

Savage: {j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Big blind: {7-?}{5-?}

The river {q-Hearts} improved neither hand but Savage's tens were good to eliminate the opponent and move up to 48,000 in chips.
