Josh Reichard raised to 200,000 preflop from the button, and Chad Trentacosta called to cover him from the big blind before the flop fell QsJs3c.

Trentacosta bet 250,000, Reichard raised to 625,000, and Trentacosta called before the Kc fell on the turn. Trentacosta bet 1.6 million, and Reichard called before the river delivered the 4s.

Trentacosta got all in for 2.4 million, and Reichard called to cover him. Trentacosta flipped over 10d9d for a straight, but that wasn’t enough against the Ks8s of Reichard to make a flush.

Trentacosta busted in 17th place for a payout worth $47,500, and Reichard made it three-in-a-row eliminations to end the night with a big chip lead of 22.2 million.

Josh Reichard – 22,200,000 (222 bb)
