Michael Newman

On the first hand of the day, Ari Engel opened the action and Michael Newman defended in the big blind to the AcTd8h flop. Newman called a flop bet, then led out for 600,000 after the 3d turn.

Engel moved all in and Newman had to make a decision for his tournament on the first hand of the final table. He thought for a few minutes and called for 2,900,000.

Newman: Ad7d
Engel: 6d4d

Newman was best with the ace and better flush draw, Engel was drawing dead to the river and Newman doubled into the lead.

Michael Newman – 6,780,000 (85 bb)
Ari Engel – 1,100,000 (14 bb)
