Nicholas Zautra

Nicholas Zautra moved all in out of the small blind for 695,000 and Faraz Jaka called out of the big blind.

Zautra showed Jh10h and was up against Jaka’s Kc7h. The flop was 10d8c4d, moving Zautra into the lead.

Jaka will be basically even with chips when he starts heads-up play against Jessica Dawley.

Raj Vohra

Jessica Dawley raised to 80,000 from the cutoff and Raj Vohra moved all in on the button for 670,000. The blinds folded and Dawley called.

Dawley was in big trouble with her AdJh against Vohra’s AhAs.

The flop was 9c7h2h, keeping Vohra in the lead. The turn was the 10h, which gave Dawley a straight draw, but only had three outs since Vohra turned the nut flush draw.

“I’ve hit three outs before,” said Dawley before the river came.

The whole table groaned in disbelief as the 8s came on the river. Dawley rivered a straight and eliminated Vohra in fifth place.

Vohra earned $46,890 for his efforts and Dawley put some space between her and Faraz Jaka at the top of the chip counts.
