Day 1a Chip Leader Graner Eliminated

MikePatrick • Level 17: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante
Stephen Graner

The first of the opening flight chip leaders has been eliminated as Stephen Graner has busted.

Armando Mesina opened action in late position with a raise to 12,000. Derek Molnar called in the cutoff and Graner jammed for almost 200,000 from the small blind.

Mesina folded, but Molnar called and had Graner in bad shape.

Stephen Graner: {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}
Derek Molnar:{10-Spades}{10-Clubs}

The flop came {a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}, bringing Molnar a set, and running fives were not in the cards for Graner on the {7-Clubs} turn and {j-Spades} river.
