Level 2: 100/200 (200)
While we won’t be covering much from the Day 1f field, we did notice a hand on our way back from the Day 1e dinner break.
Marcello Favaloro fired out for 18,000 into a pot of a bit more with the 8♦7♦7♠6♦ on the board after the turn. William Kassouf jammed for 38,500 and Favaloro snap-called.
“Nine-high like a boss,” Kassouf said with a little more pep in his step than earlier today.
William Kassouf: 9♦4♦
Marcello Favaloro: J♦J♣
Favaloro still had thin hope for a better flush. However, he bricked the 5♣ river and was down to fumes after doubling up Kassouf. Favaloro dusted off his crumbs the next hand and was the first player out of the Day 1f field.
William Kassouf – 100,000
Marcello Favaloro – 0
