Nipun Java

It’s been a while since we’ve had a chance to update Event 1, and a lot has changed over the course of the last hour. The field is now just 13 players strong.

Nipun Java is primarily the one driving the action, and his chip stack has swollen as a result. Just a moment after eliminating Reinaldo Troconis with ace-king, Java played another big pot against Jonathan Snead.

Snead got himself all in for 2,170,000 before the flop, and Java re-shoved for more than 10 million behind him. When the rest of the table folded, Java showed down more of the same.

“Ace-king again?” Snead asked. Java nodded.

Snead: AdQc
Java: AhKc

The board ran out 5h3h2c7c2s, and the kicker played to earn Java another knockout pot. Snead was eliminated in 14th place, sending his chips over into Java’s already mighty stack.

The California pro now has more than 20 percent of the chips in play.

Nipun Java – 13,400,000 (89 bb)
Jonathan Snead – Eliminated

Alfredo Guevara

Alfredo Guevara opened with a raise in early position, Mike Mehallis called a couple seats over, and Ana Freitas joined from the button to create three-way action.

The flop was Ad3c2s, and Guevara continued for what looked like 500,000. Mehallis quickly folded, but Freitas raised all in with the larger of the two stacks. Guevara had 1,305,000 chips behind his bet, and he eventually called all in to put himself at risk.

Guevara: AsKs
Freitas: AhJs

Guevara’s kicker had him poised for a double-up, and the 9d turn and 8s river secured the pot.

Alfredo Guevara – 4,700,000 (47 bb)
Ana Freitas – 900,000 (9 bb)

Event 1: Michael Gallo Eliminated in 23rd Place ($6584)

Action folded around to the blinds, where Michael Gallo moved all in for 800,000 in the small and Reinaldo Troconis called to put him at risk from the big.

Gallo: Kc3s
Troconis: KsTs

The board ran out JsTh6c7c3c, and Troconis won the pot with a pair of tens, nearly doubling up in the process.

Gallo was eliminated in 23rd place.

Reinaldo Troconis – 1,995,000 (20 bb)
Michael Gallo – Eliminated

Brian Powell

Tyler Rauh opened to 175,000 in early position, and Brian Powell three-bet shoved for 1,900,000 a couple seats over. On the button, Zach Donovan asked for the count before moving all in with his chip-leading stack.

“I’m glad I don’t have a decision to make,” Rauh said, quickly surrendering his cards into the muck to leave Powell heads-up for his tournament life.

Powell: JsJc
Donovan: KdKh

The board ran out Jd7h5c5h6s, and Powell flopped top set and turned jacks full to earn the come-from-behind double-up.

Brian Powell – 4,185,000 (52 bb)
Zach Donovan – 4,175,000 (52 bb)
