Ben Beahm, Day 3 Level 30

Action folded to John Pannucci in the small blind who open-shoved for ~2.1M. Beahm was in the big blind with a nearly identical stack and made the call and both players tournament lives would ride on this hand.

Beahm A♥J♥ vs Pannucci 10♠7♥ Pot: ~4.3M

Board: 8♠J♦2♣A♦2♦

Pannucci picked up a gut-shot against Beahm’s top pair on the flop but could find no help on the turn or river. Beahm benefits from waking up with an above average hand in the big blind and being able to call the ~18 big blind shove by Pannucci.

John Pannucci is eliminated in 18th place for $5,116.
