Event 1: Hard Rock – Hard Beat of the Day

$350 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)

Level 14: Blinds 1,500/3,000/400 ante

E1d1e 350 DS NL rBefore the blinds went up, James Puritz (left) got his short-stack in pre-flop holding KsQs and was in very bad shape against Giancarlo DiSalvo’s QhQd (right).

Then the flop fell 8s4s2s giving James a flush and leaving Giancarlo looking for runner-runner.  The last two were 3c8d and changed nothing.

James took the pot to survive, chipping up to ~55k.


Giancarlo DiSalvo takes the Hard Rock, Hard Beat of the Day.
