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

River: 9♦

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

Board: 2♠4♥4♣4♠2♦

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

The field is now on the Final Table bubble.
