In the first hand of the day, Peter Kelly opens the action to 65,000 under the gun, Ryan Abelseth goes all in for 655,000, and Jacob Bofferding goes all in for a little more in the big blind. Kelly thinks for over a minute before he folds. Bofferding and Abelseth are heads up, with Bofferding at risk.


The board runs out      . Bofferding's set is good and he doubles up the first hand of the day. Abelseth is left with just 5,000 chips or one ante after the hand.

The next hand, Abelseth is all in for one ante on the button and Jason Flock opens to 70,000 in late position. All the other players fold and Flock has Abelseth at risk.


The board runs out      . Flock's kings are good and Abelseth is the first casualty of the day. 

With that elimination players are redrawing for new seats as they are down to 27.

Jacob Bofferding - 1,385,000 (46 bb)
Jason Flock - 1,370,000 (45 bb)
