Hector Jimenez, Day 3 Level 27

Chris Csik opened from under the gun and action folded to Jimenez in the small blind who made the call and the two would take the flop heads-up.

Flop: 4♣7♠2♠

Jimenez checked and Csik made a continuation bet. Jimenez raised to 300k total and was called.

Turn: 7♥

Jimenez now moved all-in covering Csik’s stack of ~2.2M. At this point, the pot was ~800-900k and after a long tank Csik made the call to put himself at risk.

Csik 7♣5♣ vs Jimenez 7♦6♣

River: 3♦

Both players had turned trips but Csik was just out-kicked and would need the board to pair or to find one of the three fives to survive the encounter. However, the river was a blank and Jimenez scores his second elimination of the day and has overtaken the chip-lead towards the end of Level 27.

Chris Csik is eliminated in 17th place for $4,042.
