It was an action-filled Day 1 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel as players packed both the Brasilia and Amazon rooms for Event #46: $800 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack (8-Handed). A total of 2,053 entries were logged on the starting day to create a $1,445,312 prize pool, and after a long 22 levels, a field of 120 players found a Day 2 birth.

Leading the charge after chips were put into bags was Alejandro Andión who collected a massive 2,400,000 to end the night. Andión was seen sitting with a decent stack in the latter stages of the tournament but catapulted to the top of the counts after flopping the nut straight with king-jack.

Pok Kim raised all in for 55,000 from the button, the small blind player called and then called the 280,000 three-bet jam KL Cleeton made from the big blind.

Pok Kim: {k-Hearts}{8-Spades}
KL Cleeton: {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}
Small Blind Player: {a-Clubs}{6-Clubs}

Cleeton was ahead with his made hand of queens until the {k-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} flop fell giving Kim trip kings.

The {8-Clubs} turn improved Kim to a full house, securing her triple-up, while Cleeton faded a club on the river as the {j-Diamonds} secured his a double-up worth 225,000.

Cho Takes One Out With Top Two

jeffmcmillan • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

The flop read {j-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}.

Steve Cho had bet 100,000 on the flop, he was facing a shove of about 450,000 from his opponent. He thought for a few moments before he called.

His opponent turned over the {q-Diamonds}{8-Spades} and voiced some displeasure at the length of the tank when he saw that Cho had the {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs} for top two pair.

The turn was the {4-Diamonds} and the river came the {3-Clubs} and Cho took down the nice pot to head close to a million in chips.
