Ron Sims, Day 2 Level 20

Towards the end of Level 20 a couple big pots played out, one of which moved Ron Sims up to ~1.7M.

Sims opened the button to 36k and was 3-bet by Nate Lindquist in the small blind to 100k. Mike Linster, from the big blind, 4-bet to 260k before seeing a shove from Sims for ~900k. Lindquist released his hand (QxQx) before Linster made the call for his tournament life (~700k).

Sims 7♥7♠ vs Linster K♠K♦ Pot: ~1.5M

Board: 6♥J♥8♠9♠7♣

Sims picks up outs on the turn and then picks up the pot when he makes his set on the end.

Meanwhile, Anna Antimony and Bryan Neira clashed in a classic flip of AKs vs QxQx. Antimony won the flip and moves up to ~1.8M while Neira is left extremely short.
