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

Saber Slain

The action folded around to Brenton Thomas who raised to 45,000 from the button. The small blind folded before Saber reraised all in for 191,000 from the big blind.

Thomas called and rolled up {q-Spades}{9-Spades} but found himself behind Saber's {k-Hearts}{10-Clubs}. Neither hand improved on the flop of {a-Hearts}{5-Spades}{5-Clubs}, but Thomas caught the {9-Clubs} on the turn to take the lead.

Needing either a king or a ten, the river {2-Spades} completed the board and Saber is no more. Edmonds continues to lead the pack, now up to 1.58 million in chips.
