Chad Summers

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 AhTc3d, Nery bet 14,000 and Salmon called. Nery checked the 8s turn, Salmon bet 39,000 and Nery called. The river came As 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 AcJs but Salmon quickly flipped over Ad8c 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 Ks4c2s flop. Chad Summers called and the rest of the players folded.

Summers tabled 2d2c for a set of deuces against KcJc against top pair jack kicker. The Ah turn and 6s river finished the board to send the short stack out while putting the rest in the money and on their way to Day 2.
