- Big Stax XXII 1500 Main Event 9:00 PM
- Level 11 (800/1600/200)
- Day 1A Entries: 162
With a smaller field than Day 1 flights of the 300 or 500, there is a chance to find some interesting hands over the last few levels. Here’s a rare look at some of the Day 1 action…
Tom Thomas opened the pot from middle position with a stack of ~170k. Jason Rivkin was on his immediate left with a stack of ~90k and 3-bet to 10k total. Thomas called the 3-bet and the players were heads-up.
Flop: 10♠2♣J♦ Pot: ~24k
Thomas checked. Rivkin bet 8600 and was called.
Turn: 6♥ Pot ~41.2k
Thomas checked. Rivkin bet 14.2k and was called.
Thomas checked. Rivkin fired for a third consecutive street, 20k. Thomas made the call and Rivkin tabled the A♥J♣ for top pair with the best kicker possible which was good enough to scoop the pot of ~81.2k. The safe turn and river cards allowed Rivkin to get value on every street and he chips up to ~160k after the hand.
