Arcas Busts in Last Hand Before Dinner
$1,150 TKPT Main Event Day 1b 16/17
Level 3: 75-150
While Vincent Distribue showed up at the very end of level three to claim his chips, another player would lose all of them when everyone was about to be sent into the 75-minute dinner break. Several players limped in including Gerald Arcas and Brian Smith then raised to 1,000 from the button. Arcas and a third player called and the flop came KxJx4x.
Arcas bet 2,500 and just Smith called before doing so again for the same amount on the Kx turn. The 3c river completed the board and Arcas checked. Smith moved all in for 6,000 effectively, and Arcas called with king-queen for trips, only to see Smith turn over pocket jacks for the full house.
Smith built his stack to 42,000 before grabbing something to eat. Action will resume at approximately 9.25 p.m. local time. Before that happens, the $175 Satellite will have already kicked off at 9 p.m. to give players a chance at winning their entry to the Main Event for less.
