The first bust-out saw a huge stack go to Pal Zagreda.
Zagreda opened the cutoff and was 3-bet by Sumeet Wayachal in the big blind. Zagreda made the call to see the flop in position.
Flop: 6♠10♥10♦ Pot: ~900k
Wayachal bet 500k and was called.
Turn: 2♣ Pot: ~1.9M
Wayachal checked. Zagreda bet 1M. Wayachal moved in for ~1.9M and was called by Zagreda.
Zagreda 10♠9♣ vs Wayachal K♦K♠ Pot: ~5.7M
Zagreda fills up on the end but was only fading two outs from Wayachal. He improves his chip-lead and holds a commanding advantage on the field with ~10.5M.
Sumeet Wayachal is eliminated in 13th place for $5,286.
On the other table, short-stacked Rich Milo moved all-in for ~650k under the gun. Bart Dowling made the call from the button and would have him at risk for the 2nd time over the last couple of orbits.
Milo A♦J♣ vs Dowling 9♣9♥ Pot: ~1.5M
Downling holds with his pair and recovers the chips he lost to Milo a few hands prior.
Rich Milo is eliminated in 12th place for $5,845
