Gil Aboodi opened by tossing 105,000 in the middle and the dealer informed him that it was not a valid raise, it was a forced call. John Magnetta shoved for 875,000 next to act and it folded around to Aboodi. He quickly called with another monster to put Magnetta deep in it.
Magnetta needed some kind of miracle to double up but he was sent out after the board ran while Aboodi increased his lead.
Gil Aboodi – 9,800,000 (123 bb) John Magnetta – Eliminated in 5th place ($35,843)

We caught the action with the board already spread and reading in a heads up hand between the two big stacks, Gil Aboodi and Jordan Meltzer. The pot was in the low seven-digit territory when Meltzer moved all in for his last 2,825,000.
Aboodi didn’t think too long before he said call for the massive pot.
Aboodi tabled for aces up, Meltzer showed for the busted flush draw, and we had a shocking exit for Meltzer.
Gil Aboodi – 9,600,000 (120 bb) Jordan Meltzer – Eliminated in 6th place ($27,565)

Jordan Meltzer opened to 150,000 and Ruslan Dykshteyn moved all in for 375,000 next to act. Gil Aboodi stayed active and called in the small blind. Meltzer followed suit to see the flop and the two live players checked.
Each checked again after the turn and Aboodi checked the river. Meltzer bet 140,000 and Aboodi flashed before folding.
Dykshteyn, the 2016 SHRPO Big 4 $1,100 Champ, was ahead until the river but the jack sent him out in seventh place.

Jordan Meltzer opened to160,000 from early position and Vytautas Semaska raised to 400,000 from the button. Gil Aboodi called from the small blind and Meltzer released his hand. The flop came and Aboodi slid out two barrels of 25K chips for a 1,000,000 bet.
After a minute think, Semaska announced all in for ~2,200,000 and Aboodi quickly called.
Aboodi set-mined his fours to crush the kings and Semaska was sent out after the turn and river in a huge pot.
Gil Aboodi – 8,600,000 (143 bb) Vytautas Semaska – Eliminated in 8th place ($17,031)
