Vanessa Kade shared an in-depth look at a hand she played yesterday in Day 1a. Today we tried to recreate the magic, but purely from her memory. This was the result:

She ended the break with average chips after rebuying.

"I had one hand where I won, and several hands where I did not win."

She had [ts5s] in the big blind and a player min-raised.

"I'm obviously calling," she said, "because, antes."

The flop was queen-high with two spades.

"I got max value, or pretty close. I remembered the guy from yesterday and pretty much bet the pot all three streets.

The turn was the [qs] and Kade made a flush she bet, her opponent called. The river was a [4h] she bet again, and her opponent called again. He mucked when she showed the flush.
