Game One to Smith

Sam Greenwood got off to a slow start, his stack sliding more and more to Dan Smith as game one moved along.

Greenwood puts his last 24BB in preflop, Smith making the call.

Greenwood has Heart A Club 8 and he is up against the Spade Q Diamond Q of Smith.

A brutal flop for Greenwood, near-ideal for Smith as the cards go Club Q Heart J Diamond 4.

Smith locks up the hand with the turn Diamond J, a 1-0 lead in this best-of-three match.

Winner moves on to a 5 p.m. stream-start semifinals match.

Win the semifinals and advance to tomorrow’s 1 p.m. stream-start best-of-five championship match.
