Antes Up!

$2000 + $200 Championship Event
$500,000 Guaranteed Prize Pool (Day 1B)

Play continues into Level 4, blinds 100/200 with 25 antes.

Many players consider the start of antes as the start of the tournament itself, as all players have to put chips in every pot and can no longer sit back and wait.

Not one to wait for the action, Steve Dannenmann (utg) fired at the pot on a flop of Q 5 2. Steven Curtin (cutoff) called, as did George Cain (big blind). Turn was the 7. Cain checked, Dannenmann fired 1,500, Curtin called, Cain check-raised 5k on top, Dannenmann called the raise, as did Curtin.

River was the K and it was checked to Curtin, who bet 7k. Cain called and Dannenmann flashed the AQ as he mucked. Curtin showed pocket 7s for the set on the turn, but Cain held JT for the flush to take the pot.

Tom Dobrilovic is up to ~60k. He managed to grind his way to about 45k, then caught pocket Aces that held up against an opponent's pocket Jacks to pick up another ~15k.
