Maurice Hawkins, now average stacked and on table 2, opened from EP, was called, and then shoved by Michael Olarte for nearly 20 blinds. It looked strong, attacking the early open, and Harrison Dobin’s flat behind was likely a premium. Hawkins and the EP flatter gave up quickly.
The cards were flipped and Olarte’s could not outflip Dobin’s two tens. After a good half level, the first bust out since the break.
Immediately after, two other quick busts – Jason Mcham in 17th and Eric Phan in 16th – and we are at 15 left. Harrison is now above average after several tough levels, with about 2,400,000.
