Vranken Back Above Starting Stack

Antoine Vranken made it 1,500 to go and was called by Luke Walsh from one seat over. The duo checked the :::9d:::8s:::6d flop and the :::5h turn, and Vranken led the :::2d river for 2,000. Walsh was interested enough to call and was shown the :::6c:::5c for two pair by Vranken, which won the pot.

After a disastrous start into Day 1b, Vranken has climbed back above the starting stack while Walsh remains comfortably above it.
