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.
An ill-timed move by Boujenah looked to be rewards as the first two cards on the flop were the and . However, the third flop card was the gifting Isaia a set. The turn and river were the and and Boujenah plummets to 95,000.
