The first of the first-round matches is complete.
On the last hand, Mike Linster was all-in and ahead with AK against the A5 of David Simon.
Mike Linster & David Simon
The board ran out J A 4 7 5 and David paired his kicker on the river to win the pot and the match. He will advance to the second round to face Travis Greenawalt, who had a first-round bye.
Travis was the runner-up in the 2011 Borgata Poker Open Heads-Up event, so he's a favorite to go deep.
