Bryan Hayes, Big Stax 500 Day 2

Bryan Hayes opened the pot from early position for a standard raise and was flatted by David McConachie in middle position. The blinds folded out so they were heads-up to the flop.

Flop: 3♦4♣K♦ Pot: ~300k

Hayes led out for 140k. McConachie raised to 340k. Hayes moved all-in for 1.61M total and was snapped off by McConachie.

Hayes A♦K♥ vs McConachie 4♦4♥ Pot: ~3.5M

Turn: Q♥ River: 5♣

McConachie puts a huge cooler on Hayes considering the fairly dry flop and the really strong hand Hayes had flopped. Hayes had some hope with the backdoor flush-draw as well as running outs to a boat or straight, but the turn brought none of those possibilities. McConachie chips up to ~4.2M, near where he began the level.

Bryan Hayes is eliminated in 17th place for $3,537.
