Plenty of action here in the early hands, Toby Giles was all-in with pocket tens versus David Rodwell's A-K.
A king on the flop put Rodwell in front and Giles stood up, hoping to gain some extra equity calling for a ten. The river provided the ten and Giles doubled up.
Jarryd Godena was all-in with up against Peter An's pocket nines. No ace or queen on board sent Godena to the re-buy counter.
On the same table, Hasan Onay picked off a bluff with ace-ten to send Meerwais Hussaini to the same place.
In the first hand of the day, Marc Seymour was UTG and went all-in with 144,000. Michael Oscuro called, the rest of the table folded and the cards were tabled.
The board ran out clean for Seymour and he doubled up.
