Flight E is in the books and the 41 survivors are done until tomorrow. In the very last hand of the night, a player in middle position went all in for 83,000 and Francis Obadun (pictured) called in late position to put his opponent at risk. The remaining players folded and it was heads up.
Obadun: Ad Kh
Opponent: As Qs
The board ran out Jd 8s 7d 9c 7s. Obadun’s ace-king high was good and that hand ended play for the night.
With that pot, Obadun took the chip lead of the flight with 326,000 chips, which puts him second in chips overall in the combined first five flights. Zackary Tejchma finished not far behind Obadun with 314,500, making him third in chips of all the players advancing to Day 2 thus far with just one more flight to go.
