Denight suffered a brutal 4-outer earlier from Alvaro Holguin to lose some momentum in the event. He just climbed back into it however, after hitting a critical double up.
Eric Doerr opened from the cutoff at the 7-handed table to 250k. Ed O’Brien, from the small blind, moved in for 1.9M total. Denight woke up with a hand in the big blind, and called for less (1.46M). Now back on Doerr, he carefully considered that he may have the best hand and could bust them both. He eventually folded and quickly saw he was nowhere near the best hand.
O’Brien A♠A♦ vs Denight J♥J♠ Pot: 3.275M
Denight gets some redemption and hits his 2-outer to stay alive. O’Brien is crippled in the hand, but doubled up right after and is working with just shy of 1M now.
