Sean Roman, Big Stax 500 Day 3

Sean Roman moved all-in for ~1.1M against an open from David McConachie. McConachie made the call and had another player on the ropes.

McConachie 7♥7♠ vs Roman 2♣2♥ Pot: ~2.4M

Board: 3♣K♣Q♠2♦J♠

Roman hits a two outer on the turn and gets out of the basement for the time being. McConachie is still sitting with plenty of chips despite taking a bad beat.

David Grandieri, Big Stax 500 Day 2

Grandieri was next to get back into the event but only temporarily. He got it in with TxTx against Krapivin’s Ax7x after Krapivin opened the button into his big blind. The board ran out Kx8x7x9xKx getting Grandieri up to ~1.4M.

However, a couple of hands later, Grandieri open shoved A♦10♣ from under the gun at the six-handed table, Krapivin made the call from the big blind with A♠J♠. The board ran out 2♠3♣A♥6♥4♠ and Krapivin’s kicker would play and he collects ~2.8M from the middle.

David Grandieri is eliminated in 12th place for $5,650.
