Ylon Schwartz, last year’s third place finisher in this same event is off to a good start so far today. On a board, Schwartz checked and an opponent bet. Another player called as did Schwartz. On the river, the action was the same until it got back to Schwartz. This time he threw in a raise and was called by both players. He turned over for two pair and a straight flush draw on the flop which turned into a full house by the river. Another player flipped over which was good for the low and the turn bettor mucked. Schwartz was up to around 11,000 after the hand.
