On table one, Corbin Avery just played to perfection. At 10/20 he opened to 50,000, getting a call from the BB. The flop induced an interesting 75.000 lead from the BB, which Corbin flatted. The turn paired the seven, which his antagonist again led, now 120,000. Recognizing the false scare card and able to get value from worse, Corbin shipped it for about 300,000, got called by a worse king, and suddenly is a factor with an even million.
Maurice is a little off his peak but still leading with about 2,500,000. Rocco Esposito is very short and just moved into the blind – he’ll need a double soon. Here both players have to give up to a cbet after calling from the blinds.
Clavell had dropped to about seven bigs when he found . Too short to get folds, two players including a short stack, got tangled up with him. Top two give him a bounty and a needed triple against tens and J9o taking a flyer from the BB.
Then, more action. Brannan opened the button to 60,000, Doan three bet, Brannan snap shoved 725,000 – 36 blinds – and got called. It’s for Brannan, which doubles though . Big stack at the start of 23, now Doan is back to average.
