Event 10: Edgar Varas Makes a Royal Flush to Bust Kevin Butler in 11th

$570 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 33: 100,000/200,000/25,000 Ante

Michael Lewin moved all in from the small blind for 1,625,000, and Ivan Barbuto tanked for a while before he called from the big blind with 9d8h. Lewin turned over As3d, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came 7s4s4hQs7d, and Lewin won the pot with his ace to double up in chips.

Michael Lewin  –  3,375,000  (17 bb)
Ivan Barbuto  –  5,125,000  (26 bb)

At the other table, with the board showing KsKhJh6h on the turn, Edgar Varas checks the hijack, Kevin Butler bets 600,000, and Varas check-raises to 2,250,000. Butler moves all in for about 5.75 million, and Varas calls with [AhQh] for an ace-high flush (with Royal Flush draw). Butler turns over KcQc for trip kings, and he needs to fill up to stay alive.

The river card is — the 10h.

Varas makes an unnecessary Royal Flush to win the pot, eliminating Butler in 11th place on the final table bubble.

Edgar Varas  –  14,100,000 (71 bb)
Kevin Butler  –  Eliminated in 11th Place  ($14,640)
