The quick rate of bustouts has continued and the field is already down to 18 players. The final two table are being drawn for now but in the meantime, let’s recap the most recent three bustouts.
Andre Allen was the first to go in one of the biggest pots of the tournament as he was felted by Johanssy Joseph, who has been unstoppable today.
Joseph opened for 95,000 and was three-bet by Allen to 210,000. Joseph called and the two saw a 7♦5♥5♣ flop. Joseph checked to Allen, who bet about 240,000. After some thought, Joseph put in a raise to 500,000 and Allen was soon all-in for about 800,000 total, which was snap-called by Joseph.
Joseph had flopped a full house with 7♠7♣ and had Allen in dire straights with J♥J♣. The board ran dry for Allen and Joseph shipped the pot to move over 3,300,000.
On adjacent tables, Jim Willerson and Kasra Khodayarkhani were subsequently all-in with their respective short stacks. Both were sent to the rail after losing preflop confrontations.
Once players are settled in, the two-table redraw will be posted.
