James Moran raised to 16,000 under the gun and Mike Rieck, who finished 3rd in the CPC Main last year, went all in for around 150,000 in the big blind. Moran called with aces and Rieck’s A-Q was in bad shape. Rieck could not catch up to Moran’s aces and was eliminated just before the break.
James Moran – 480,000
Mike Rieck – Eliminated
