Dennis O’Connor

After eliminating Daiane Mandes in fifth place, Dennis O’Connor took the chip lead with five remaining and then extended it in a pot with Daren Stabinski.

On the river with a completed board of Js9s6hTd3d, Stabinski checked from the big blind and O’Connor moved all in for Stabinski’s remaining 49,000. Stabinski thought for a couple minutes and then folded.

O’Connor flashed KxQx, giving him the nuts, and has a huge lead with five players remaining.

Here are how the chip counts look for the remaining five players;

Adam Koppel – 215,000
Mithcell Mantin – 65,000
Daren Stabinski – 49,000
Kane Lai – 135,000
Dennis O’Connor – 405,000
