Appler Wins A Monster From Andoloro

• Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante
Cosmo Andoloro in action on Day 1

Steve McLoughlin raised to 18,000 from under-the-gun, and was called by Day 1 chip leader Cosmo Andoloro in middle position, Joseph Appler in the small blind, and Jose Zaragota in the big blind.

Appler jammed his last 182,000 in on a {10-Hearts}{9-Spades}{j-Clubs} flop, and Zaragota and McLoughlin quickly folded. Andoloro tanked for a minute before electing to call.

Cosmo Andoloro: {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}
Joseph Appler: {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

Appler's set needed to fade Andoloro's open-ended straight draw, and the {6-Diamonds} turn was a safe one.

"King! Eight!" Andoloro said, but the {2-Diamonds} bricked off, sending the big double over to Appler.
