One of the first hands of the day also happens to be one of the biggest of the tournament so far.

Alessio Isaia, himself a WPT champion, opened from under the gun and the action folded to Ilan Boujenah in the small blind. He checked his cards and three-bet to 21,000. Isaia then four-bet, Boujenah shoved for 300,000 and Isaia beat him into the pot with a call.

Boujenah: {9-Clubs}{7-Hearts}
Isaia: {K-Hearts}{k-Spades}

An ill-timed move by Boujenah looked to be rewards as the first two cards on the flop were the {9-Spades} and {7-Spades}. However, the third flop card was the {K-Clubs} gifting Isaia a set. The turn and river were the {8-Hearts} and {j-Spades} and Boujenah plummets to 95,000.
