Islamay Rockets Into Chip Lead; Eliminates Cohen

Sam Cohen was first to act and she made it 1,600 from under the gun. JC Alvarado called from the next seat over and the player in the cutoff called as well. Erion Islamay called from the button and the big blind tagged along as well.

The five players saw a flop of {2-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}. Action checked all of the way around to Islamay's button and he bet 3,200. His only caller was Cohen and they saw the {8-Diamonds} turn. Cohen checked once again and Islamay fired 8,100. Cohen called once more.

The {A-Diamonds} completed the board and Cohen checked one last time. Islamay bet 13,300. Cohen wrapped her hands around her stack and pushed the whole thing in the middle for a bet that totaled 56,600. Islamay then went into the tank for over four minutes before finally dropping in a call.

"You win," said Cohen, flashing {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}.

Islamay showed {2-Spades}{2-Hearts} for a flopped full house and dragged in a massive pot and put him in the chip lead with about 230,000. Cohen, on the other hand, saw her exit from the tournament near the end of the first level of the day.
