Two players that have been featured already today just faced off in a major Day 1 pot.

Sheldon Gross started the action with a limp in the cutoff. The button, a short stack, moved all-in for 20k. Andrew Phillips was in the small blind and attempted to isolate the short-stack with a re-raise to 50k. Gross was not interested in going away and made the call despite being in for just 2k. The two players had ~260k behind as they head to the flop…

J♠2♠7♥ Pot: ~125k

Phillips was first to act and continued his aggression. He moved all-in for more than 2x the size of the pot and was called by Gross creating a massive side-pot to be contested between them.

Gross 7♠7♦ vs Phillips 8♠8♥ Pot: ~645k

Turn: 3♦

River: 6♠

Gross was fortunate to flop a set into the aggressive play from Phillips. However, he received maximum value from the hand and takes a massive chip-lead at this stage.
