Quinn Bruno

Jason Young opened to 550,000 from early position and it folded around to Quinn Bruno in the big blind. He moved all in for 2,800,000 and Young snapped his call.

Young: [jh][jd]
Bruno: [as][kd]

It was a race and Bruno needed to improve to stick around. The all-club [qc][8c][4c] flop did not help and Young improved on the [jc] turn. The river blanked [6s] and Bruno was eliminated in seventh place.

Paul James Hizer opened to 550,00 from under the gun and Quinn Bruno moved all in for 1,500,000 next to act. The rest of the table released and Hizer called.

Hizer: [as][kc]
Bruno: [8h][8d]

Bruno needed to his hand to hold and the [qd][tc][9c][2d][7s] runout was safe for the double up.

Pedro Aldave

Pedro Aldave moved all in the 1,600,000 from the hijack and Quinn Bruno called in the big blind to put him at risk.

Aldave: [4h][4s]
Bruno: [ad][7d]

It was a coin flip and Aldave stayed ahead on the [kd][qd][qc] flop. Bruno flopped a flush draw but diamonds became irrelevant after the [qh] turn improved Aldave to a boat. The river was [jc] and Aldave pulled a double.

Pedro Aldave – 3,575,000 (14 bb)
Quinn Bruno – 1,700,000 (7 bb)

Chan: [as][qc]
Aldave: [4h][4d]

Chan needed to catch to stay at the final table and the [ad][tc][8h] flop moved him into the lead. The [js] turn had no impact and the [3h] river locked up Chan’s double.

Kevin Chan – 7,750,000 (39 bb)

Eddy Sabat

Eddy Sabat open-shoved for 2,100,000 from under the gun and it folded to Paul James Hizer in the hijack. He called the shove and the rest folded.

Hizer: [ad][ac]
Sabat: [ks][qh]

It was aces once again for Hizer and Sabat needed a lot of help. He picked up a gutshot draw on the [jd][jh][9c] flop. Sabat paired the [qc] turn but improved no further on the [8s] river to exit in eighth place.

Paul James Hizer – 9,750,000 (49 bb)
