Pal Zagreda, Day 3 Level 27

Greg Nerenberg opened the cutoff and was flatted by Pal Zagreda on the button. Patrick Lacey was in the small blind and moved all-in for 600k even, 10 big blinds. Nerenberg folded and Zagreda was forced to make the call putting him at risk.

Zagreda J♦10♥ vs Lacey A♠5♥ Pot: ~1.5M

Board: 9♠10♠10♦7♠J♣

Zagreda flopped a huge hand but the turn brought a sweat with the flush draw for Lacey. The river bricked out and Zagreda moves up to ~8M and increases his lead to nearly 2.5M over 2nd place.

Patrick Lacey is eliminated in 15th for $5,286.

On the other table, Richard Milo survived an encounter and managed to double up his 10 big blind stack with QxJx against AxJx against Bart Dowling.
