Matthew Yorra opened to 15,000 under the gun, and John Marquez three-bet shoved for about 110,000 next to act. Yorra called with the covering stack, putting Marquez at risk.

Yorra: 7s7c
Marquez: Ah5h

The board ran out Kh9d7hTcJc, and Yorra flopped a set of sevens to win the pot. Marquez was eliminated in fifth place.

“What do we want to do?” Yorra asked as he stacked the pot. “Play or look at numbers?”

“I want to play,” Dan Heimiller answered from behind his towering stacks of chips.
