Joey Couden

Brian Hastings opened to 280,000 from the button and Joey Couden defended his big blind.

Both players checked the Kd8h7d flop. The turn brought the Ad, Couden checked and Hastings bet 375,000.

Couden moved all in for 2,005,000. Hastings used one of his time chips before deciding to call with AcQs. Couden turned over 8s7s for two-pair and needed to hold to stay alive.

The river was the 2d and Couden’s two pair held to avoid elimination.

Joey Couden – 4,710,000 (39 bb)
