George Navarro

Antonio Colon lost a big pot with KhJh against Claudio Piedrabuena’s AxQx to leave him as the short stack. He was blinded down to just 30,000 and was all in in the small blind.

Manuel Jo raised from under the gun to 90,000 and George Navarro defended his big blind. The flop was QcJh5s and Navarro moved all in for about 500,000. Jo snap-called.

Colon showed 9s8d, giving him a gutshot straight draw, Navarro tabled Js7c, good for second pair, and Jo had the best hand and the biggest stack with AhQd.

The turn was the Ts, giving Colon a straight, and the river was the 4h.

Colon won the main pot, keeping him in the event, but Jo won a massive side pot to eliminate Navarro in seventh place, earning him $2,204.

Manuel Jo – 1,650,000
Antonio Colon – 100,000
George Navarro – Eliminated
