The blog has not caught up with Abe Faroni since his torrid start on Day 1. However, he has been as steady as they come on Day 2 after landing in the Top 10 during the first break and not falling out of that position all evening. Faroni continued that performance by taking out one of the shorter stacks in the room.
Faroni opened from the cutoff for a standard raise and Mike Kemeter 3-bet all-in for ~250k, just under 10 big blinds. Faroni quickly made the call to put Kemeter at risk.
Faroni A♠10♠ vs Kemeter Q♠10♣ Pot: ~600k
The board brought a nice sweat for Kemeter but he could not find one of his seven outs and is out in 45th. Faroni now has ~3.2M and is very close to the chip-lead.
