Early Action

PokerStars Macau

We predicted that it would be an action-packed tournament because of the rules and it looks like the players are already going wild early on.

In the first five minutes, we witnessed two all-in moments. Over on one table, it was a player shoving his stack on a flop of {5-}{4-}{6-} holding pocket tens but was drawing pretty thin after a player snap called with {3-}{7-}. The turn and river blanked and we saw an early first elimination.

Less than a minute later, another table was alive as two players went all-in on a flop of {8-}{9-}{10-}. Everybody thought that at least one person would have a straight draw but both players ended up showing {9-}{10-}! The turn and river did not change their tie and they split the pot.
