Craig Disalvo

Craig Disalvo, who started the day on 17 big blinds, is now sitting on an 80 big blind mountain after knocking out two opponents, including Day 1a chip leader Shawn Daniels.

Disalvo, Daniels and Rudy Wusstig went all in three-ways preflop, with Disalvo going into the hand with the biggest stack of the three.

Rudy Wusstig: {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Shawn Daniels: {j-Clubs}{j-Spades}
Craig Disalvo: {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

Already in great shape when the cards were turned over, Disalvo left his opponents drawing dead when the {10-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{k-Spades} hit the board, giving him quad kings. The turn {2-Spades} and river {6-Diamonds} were just a formality, and Disalvo is now among the chip leaders.
