Event 1A: End of Flight Excitement

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

End of Level 14:  Blinds 1,400/3,000/400 ante

Robert RosettaFlight A Chip Leader Robert Rosetta with 264,000

One huge hand lasted after all the other tables were done.  The flop read KdJh3h and Richard Hope (sb) checked.  Garrett Topping (bb) fired 20k.  Adam Agosto called, then Richard jammed for 97,300 straight.

Garrett tanked for a few minutes, then folded.  Adam gave it some thought, then called.

Richard had QsQd and was ahead of Adam’s 9h2h (no pair, just a flush draw).

The last two peeled off 9d4d giving Adam one useless pair.  He was busted.  (Garrett says he folded the winner.)

Richard chipped up to 261,800 and after folding the last two hands of the night, he bagged 261,000.

The chip leader, however, is Robert Rosetta of Tampa, FL .  He bagged 264,000, just 3k more than Richard Hope.  Robert will receive an $1,100 seat in Event 9, which takes place on Sunday, June 8th at 2pm.

There were 40 players left out of the 176 entries in this flight.  They will return at 1pm Sunday for day 2.

Average stack at the end of this flight was 110k.
