We are down to 128! The final first round match just finished with Isaac Haxton beating Daniel Morgen. In the final hand Morgan min-raised from the button and Haxton moved all in. Morgan called and after counting down the stack both players were dead even in chips. This was gonna be the final hand no matter what! Well, they could still chop of course but that's not a very likely scenario.
Haxton showed against Morgan's and the board ran out giving Haxton a pair of aces and the win. "Good game man, you played well," Haxton complimented his opponent who said, "Cheers man," as he walked away.
Play will resume at 4:00 PM local time with the second round. We are going to play three rounds today getting the field down to 32 players. Players who survive this day will be in the money.
