The players in Flight C are wrapping up their last three hands, which will be followed by a black chip color-up, then the chip inventory, then finally the bag & tag.
During the last level of play, Christian Soto caught a big hand, pushing him ahead of the field. He opened the pot and got calls from the two players to his left. On the flop of K T 9, Christian checked, the next player bet 20,000, and the other folded. Christian check-raised to 80,000 and got called.
Turn was an 8 and Christian shoved his last 150,000, getting a call. His opponent showed KQ for top pair, but Christian had pocket 9s for a set. The river was a brick and Christian took the pot, chipping up to~430,000.
Matt Cooper has dropped back to about 330,000, which is still a respectable end of night count.
