A player in early position raised it up preflop to 1,400, Lauren Kling re-raised to 3,300, the early position player re-raised to 7,100 and Kling moved all in and got called.

Kling had {A-Spades}{k-Hearts} against the {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts} of the early position player.

The board ran out {6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{10-Spades}{3-Diamonds} and after a count, it was found that Kling was actually left with 225 chips. Only two double ups until she has a whole big blind!

David "Bakes" Baker has been making moves recently here late on Day 1.

We got to the table when this hand was on the turn with a lot of money already in the pot. The board read {6-Clubs}{9-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{4-Spades} and Bakes had bet 11,500 into the pot from early position. The player behind made the call and the river {5-Spades} was dealt.

Bakes wasted little time and moved all in for 34,000. The player behind folded and Bakes scooped the massive pot. He is up around 80,000 which is about double average at this point in the tournament.
