Level 19: 2,500/5,000 with a 500 Ante
Players Remaining: 7 of 126

Tom Nguyen opened to 13,000 in middle position, and Derek Bowers three-bet shoved for 81,000 in the cutoff. From the big blind, Brian Hastings re-shoved for about 180,000, and Nguyen open-folded pocket fours. Bowers was heads-up and at risk as the cards were shown down, and he’d found himself in a good spot.

Bowers: AdJh
Hastings: AsTd
