We had fireworks right out of the gates with some big hands. Stephen Leahy took an early short with his short stack and open-shoved for 465,000 from the cutoff and Tony Tran called in the big blind after a short think.
Leahy held a monster and the board ran . For a moment, Leahy thought Tran made a straight to bust him but he happily took the chips.
Stephen Leahy – 1,020,000 (17 bb)
Tony Tran – 1,025,000 (17 bb)
In the meantime, Scott Zakheim was sent out in 27th place followed by Malik King in 26th.
