Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Fast Start for Galfond Slowed by Speranza

Shamus

Over at the main feature table, Phil Galfond used that first hour of play to push his stack over the 2 million-chip mark and into what appeared to be the chip lead at the break.

On the first hand back, Galfond opened with a raise to 20,000 from under the gun, and the table folded back around to Gianluca Speranza in the small blind who reraised all in for a total of 147,000. It folded to Galfond who thought about a minute before making the call.

Galfond {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades}

The community cards came {K-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{J-Clubs}{2-Clubs}, and Speranza doubled back to about 300,000. Galfond is still near the top of the counts with 1.86 million.
