Big Slick Does the Trick

Level 15 : 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

After Franco Spitale moved all in from early position, a middle-position player with a larger chipstack moved all in behind, which got folds from the remaining players.

Franco Spitale: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Opponent: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}

The {10-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} flop was a good one for Spitale, and the {4-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} runout secured his double-up.

Parekh Doubles Up

Level 14 : 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante

Mike Parekh moved all in and was called.

Mike Parekh: {a-Diamonds}{8-Spades}
Opponent: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

Parekh was behind and saw that he would need to hit an eight or have a very specific runout to stay alive. He got the perfect runout on the {6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} board, turning the nutflush to stay alive on Day 1a.

After Ryan Riess shoved his last 30,000 into the middle, action folded around to Christopher Fisher on the button, he three-bet shoved and the remaining players got out of the way.

Ryan Riess: {a-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}
Christopher Fisher: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}

The board ran out {9-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}, which was no help to Riess, and the 2013 WSOP Main Event champion was eliminated.

Konnikova Scoops a Small One

Level 13 : 1,000-2,500, 2,500 ante

Maria Konnikova raised it to 6,000 from the button and the big-blind player called. After the big-blind player checked the {a-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{j-Spades} flop Maria continued for 7,000, which resulted in a check-fold from her opponent.

Siegal Doubles Up

Level 13 : 1,000-2,500, 2,500 ante

A short-stacked Jeff Siegal moved remaining chips into the middle and was called by the big-blind player who was sitting on a sizable chipstack.

Jeff Siegal: {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
Big-Blind Player: {7-Spades}{5-Spades}

The board ran out {j-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{9-Spades}{k-Clubs}{4-Hearts}, and Siegal's ace-high was good enough to secure his double-up and send him some much-needed chips.
