Smith Wins Game 2 vs. Aoki

Right after Steve Aoki doubled to work back to a 3-1 chip deficit, Aoki was able to get his entire stack in, drawing a call from Dan Smith in game two of their best-of-three opening-round match.

Aoki needs help with his Qd – Th, as he is quite a ways behind the Kd – Qs of Smith.

 The help does not arrive as the board runs out 3s – 2c – Jd – 7s – 7d.

Smith wins game 2, the players are now tied at one game each, the next game decides who advances from this round and who is eliminated from the competition.
