Zach Donovan

Zach Donovan open-shoved from under the gun for 4,175,000 and active folded around to Nipun Java in the small blind. He called the shove and Alfredo Guevara thought about joining the fun from the big blind. He released and the cards were tabled.

Java: Ah8h
Donovan: KdJh

Donovan needed help to stay in the game but missed the 9h5d4d flop. The 6h turn took away an out and the Kh river gave the flush to Java along with the lead-extending pot.

Nipun Java – 21,300,000 (43 bb)
Zach Donovan – Eliminated in 7th place ($46,009)

Nipun Java

We had another big pot on the last hand before another break. Nipun Java opened to 950,000 and Ana Clara Freitas called from the big blind to the KhKc5d flop. Freitas checked, Java bet 600,000 and Freitas called.

Both checked the 6d turn and Freista bet 1,700,000 after the Th river. After a minute tank, Java tossed in a calling chip.

“Ace-high,” said Freitas.

Java tabled trip kings KdJc to best Ac7c to retake the lead.

Manny Minaya

Manny Minaya made a few moves with his short stack that made it through. He tried once again with an open-shove from the small blind for 2,100,000 and Brian Powell quickly called after double checking his cards.

Minaya: 5h2s
Powell: AhJs

Minaya had two live cards but it was Powell hitting the bigger piece on the As6h5d flop. The Tc turn changed nothing and Minaya was sent out in eighth place after the 7s river.

Brian Powell – 10,100,000 (25 bb)
