Event 1: Set of Kings no Good vs Two Flopped Straights

$500 + $60 Deep Stack No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)

Three players love the flop of K♠ Q 10♠, but only Darryl Boatwright (Sicklerville, NJ) is smiling after the three way all in.

Boatwright: A J (straight)
Tony "Muscles" Campagna: J 9 (straight)
Anonymous: KK (set of kings)

"It was only the third hand I played," laments Campagna (Manorville, NY), whose late registration turns into an early exit.

"I have to walkway after that," says a relieved Boatwright who dodged the full house and was glad nobody had spades.

Boatwright triples his starting stack to 75k, while the player with the set of kings is left with just a few chips.  His exit, a few hands later, comes while holding KK again.

Campagna says he won't re-enter today, but will be back for Day 1B after playing some of juicy cash games in the Borgata Poker Room.
