What a way to start a tournament. In this hand, Spencer Champlin raised to 110K from UTG and was called all-in by Ekrem Bozkurt in the lojack position and then all-in effective by Vadim Shlez from the cutoff. Champlin got out of the way.
Bozkurt showed pocket Aces, and Schlez turned over pocket Queens. The board ran 10♥ A♥ K♥ K♣ J♣, and even though Schlez made his straight on the river, Bozkurt had the superior full house. Bozkurt doubled up his 740K, giving him 1.6-ish million (32bbs) and leaving Shlez with approximately 200K (4bbs).
