Bob Beck was riding high after taking a large pot from Schuyler Thornton that preempted Thornton’s ninth place finish. With the high blinds in place, Beck was cut down shortly after and would end up losing all of his chips to Gints Galvins who is over 8,000,000 and holds a commanding lead on the field.
From early position, Galvins raised to 375,000 and Beck put in a three-bet to 1,000,000 from the small blind. Galvins called and the flop came out A♣6♠3♦. Beck open-shoved for 1,850,000 and Galvins snap-called with A♣K♣. Beck was dismayed as he rolled over 10♥10♠.
The turn and rivers were blanks for Beck as he hits the rail after a great performance today. With the field now only two eliminations from the official final table, all eyes are on short stacks Jonathan Alfonso and Bart Bogard.
