Jose Montes

It folded around to Jose Montes in the hijack and he open-shipped for 1,850,000. Alex Yen called in the small blind and Daniel Lazrus folded his big.

Montes: AdKd
Yen: 9d9h

It was a fair fight but Montes needed to improve his suited slick to double up. Yen slammed the door on the 9s5s2c flop when he made a set of nines. The 3c turn and Jc river finished the board to send Montes out of the Championship.

Alexander Yen: 13,150,000 (105 bb)
