Folding Kings Preflop Closes Day 1C

Tracy Oto opens for a minraise, Richard Palmer light 3-bets and a 3rd very short-stacked player moves all in from the BB for less than the initial raise.

Oto 4-bets only to have Palmer shove for what looks to be just about the same amount Oto has.

Oh yeah, did I mention the shortstacked all-in player is making it pretty clear his hand isn't very strong AND this is the end-of-night bubble.

Oto finds a fold and flips his cards face up.

He just showed K-K .... and Palmer shows A-A.

Yep, folding Kings preflop was the right play. The shortstacked player shows K-T.

The board runs out Q-7-Q-A-J ... Broadway for the shortstack, but a boat for Palmer and Boat Don't Lie .... the night is over.

Here are Day 1C's 12 qualifiers for Sunday's Day 2 in the $250,000 Guaranteed Monolith.
