Michael Pawelek

Engelbarth Varela Moreno raised to 40,000 from early position and Alejandro Armas called from the cutoff. Michael Pawelek three-bet to 300,000 out of the small blind and Moreno moved all in for about 450,000.

Armas folded and Pawelek quickly called. Moreno was in trouble with his QhQc against Pawelek’s KsKh.

The board ran out Jc8s2h4hAd and Pawelek won a massive pot to win the pot to eliminate Moreno in 46th place and become the first player over the million chip mark.

Michael Pawelek – 1,240,000
Engelbarth Varela Moreno – Eliminated
