The start of the final table was a relatively slow to start with so much money on the line with each bustout. Frank Pasquale started the final table barely above 10 big blinds and never found the double he so badly needed.
Right before the level went up, Pasquale met his end with Ilya Dyment raking in the last 3,000,000 of Pasquale’s stack. Dyment opened for 800,000 from the hijack and Pasquale piled for roughly 2,200,000 more from the small blind.
Dyment called with A♦8♠ and Pasquale needed to catch up A♥6♣. The K♠9♥4♥ flop put chop outs in play for Pasquale but Dyment paired up on the 8♣ turn to send Pasquale out.
After starting the day 26th out of 29 players, Pasquale grinded his way through the day and will earn a $20,585 cash for his run. Dyment is up to 12,800,000, putting him squarely in the middle of the pack.
