Leif Force pot-raised from UTG/cutoff to 70,000, Anthony Zinno pot-reraised from the button to 240,000, and Zeevy Malik pot-reraised from the small blind to 410,000.

Force folded, Zinno moved all in for 550,000, and Malik called.

Zeevy Malik:  AsAd9s6s
Anthony Zinno:  KsKh6c3h

When Force saw Zinno’s pocket kings, he said, “That’s what I folded.” That’s not what Zinno wanted to hear, needing to improve to stay alive.

The board came Qd3c2h8s3s, and Zinno paired his three on the flop and rivered trips to win the pot and double up in chips.

Anthony Zinno  –  1,190,000  (60 bb)
Zeevy Malik  –  1,250,000  (63 bb)

The next hand, Zinno and Malik clashed again, this time over a board of KdJs7s6d9c.

Zinno checked the cutoff, Malik bet 200,000 from the button, and Zinno check-pot-raised, putting out a stack of 500,000.

Malik thought for a while before he folded Ad10h8hXx face up (ten-high straight), and Zinno took the pot — and the chip lead.

Anthony Zinno  –  1,450,000  (73 bb)
Zeevy Malik  –  950,000  (48 bb)

With four players remaining from a field of 168, the average chip stack is about 840,000 (42 big blinds). The next player to bust will earn $28,555.
