Michael Johnson

Michael Johnson opened the action from early position and Stewart Yancik moved all in for 205,000 from middle position. Anthony Church reshipped for 370,000 from the big blind. Johnson thought for a few minutes and called having both players covered.

“Let’s gamble!”

Church: AhQs
Yancik: KhQd
Johnson: 7d6d

Yancik was in the worst shape of the three but took the lead when he paired his king on the KcTh7s flop. Johnson also connected with the flop and made two pair on the 6h turn. The board finished with the As river for Johnson to send both players out.

Michael Johnson – 1,700,000 (85 bb)
Anthony Church – Eliminated in 26th Place ($1,750)
Stewart Yancik – Eliminated in 27th Place ($1,750)
