Championship Day 2: Van Patten Almost There

$3,500 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Championship
Level 15: 1,500/3,000/500 Ante

There was a bet and a call of 15,000 (unknown action) on the turn between Vince Van Patten and his opponent on a board of Tc6h6s7c. The river was the Ah and Van Patten led out for 15,000. His opponent made the call and mucked his hand after Van Patten showed Ad5d for a pair of aces.

Yesterday we mentioned that Van Patten has never cashed in a WPT event before. There are 270 players left leaving him 120 eliminations away from the money. He’s sitting on a healthy stack of 275,000 and is in great position to accomplish that achievement.
