Level 17: 3,000/6,000 with a 6,000 ante
Day 1A Players Remaining: 25 of 200
Flight A reached the money bubble before the start of Level 17 and it lasted the entire level, two minutes at a time. It took 20 rounds of hand-for-hand action before they lost a player.
Before that happened, James Salmon and Todd Nery played a huge pot. The flop was , Nery bet 14,000 and Salmon called. Nery checked the turn, Salmon bet 39,000 and Nery called. The river came and Nery checked. Salmon bet out 140,000 and Nery called after a minute to think it out.
“Ace jack,” Nery said and showed for trip aces but Salmon quickly flipped over for a full house aces full of eights. A tough cooler for Nery but he was still in the game with 47,000 behind.
A few hands later in a five-way limped pot, a player moved all in for 71,000 after the flop. Chad Summers called and the rest of the players folded.
Summers tabled for a set of deuces against against top pair jack kicker. The turn and river finished the board to send the short stack out while putting the rest in the money and on their way to Day 2.
