First big hand of the day.

40 minutes into the tournament and we nearly lost our first player.

However, the shorter stack, being chip average, survives after he was forced to call the chip leader at the tables allin. After a few pre-flop raises the flop came down Jc-Ks-4c. The smaller stack value bets followed by the larger stack moving allin. The smaller stack reluctantly calls, showing As-Ah. The larger stack throws his cards on the table, showing Kc-7c and gets up to leave the table as the turn and river both bring safe cards for the 6h-3s.

The short stack doubles up leaving the previous chip leader with about 4k in chips.
