Dantonio Brown ends Day 2 on top of the chip counts

Dantonio Brown raised to 120,000 from middle position, Luke Brereton three-bet to 245,000 from the button, and Brown called.

They checked to the turn of an AcQs4sAd board where Brown checked. Brereton bet 250,000, Brown check-raised to 675,000, and Brereton called.

The river was the 8d and Brown bet 800,000. Brereton called, but mucked when Brown tabled Ah7h for trip aces to cross the 5 million mark and retake the chip lead.

Shortly afterward, Ido Ashkenazi busted in 28th place to end Day 2. We’ll have full chip counts and seating assignments for Day 3 in the next hour.

Dantonio Brown – 5,265,000 (105 bb)
