Grigoriy Shvarts, Day 1C Level 14

Grigoriy Shvarts moved up to ~390k after putting Travis Hartshorn in a tough spot and getting a river fold. He sits with Ronan Teixeira, David Zemel, and Travis Hartshorn to his right and used that excellent seat to chip up nicely in the home stretch.

Hartshorn opened from early position to 7k and was 3-bet from the cutoff by Shvarts to 19k. Hartshorn made the call to see the 9♥Q♣8♠ flop which went check/check. Turn came 9♦ and Hartshorn check/called a bet of 21k from Shvarts before check/folding the 10♥ river for a bet a 45k.

Shvarts has a nice tournament resume with ~$41k in career earnings and just picked up a 3rd place in a $1k Turbo event at Borgata last week. That score was his second best for $8,536 but would easily be overshadowed by a final table appearance this weekend in the Big Stax 300.
