Qui Nguyen has taken over the lead in day one of the final table and has a major chip lead. The action leading to the four bust outs are:
Fernando Pons went all-in with ace-six but lost when Cliff Josephy won with three of kind of kings. Jerry Wong was next with a pocket jacks being overruled by Vojtech Ruzicka’s pocket queens. Griffin Benger was next out when a pocket tens from Gordon Vayo won over Benger’s ace- nine combo.
The biggest hand of the night however went to Nguyen who took Kenny Hallert out with a pair of aces against Hallaert’s ace queen of clubs.

Cash Games
After logging in, you’ll see the cash games screen. Some players swear by cash games. They make sense for a great reason – time management. If you don’t have 10 hours for some of larger tournaments and say 2 or 3, cash games can work to your advantage. Also, your concentration span might be within a few hour window. If so, cash games might be your best bet for poker games. Many professional poker players play only cash games and make a great living on them.
