Chris Hunichen recently got his last 310,000 in preflop from the big blind. He was at risk against Mike Leah on the button, but had the best of it with against Leah’s . The runout was favorable for Hunichen, as he paired both his four and his ace to snag aces up and double to nearly 800,000.
Still with less than 10 big blinds to his name, Hunichen met his fate in fourth place a few hands later. Brandon Adams opened the cutoff to 180,000 and Hunichen jammed the last of his 640,000-chip stack. Adams called and was ahead going to the flop.
Adams’ pair of aces was best and Hunichen was eliminated in fourth place earning $242,775.
