Joseph Liberta defended his BB against the day 3 chip leader Bart Golik when he opened in the cutoff pre-flop to 140k.

Flop: 6s10s10c both players checked

Turn: Qs Liberta bet 240k, Golik raised to 650K and Liberta called

River: 9h both players check

Liberta shows down his A-10 for trips with an Ace kicker and Golik mucks.

Meanwhile Joshua Lawson was moving all in with his remaining 2.5mil in chips on a J-high flop vs. Ryan Pochedly. The turn brought a second club and the river a blank for both.

Pochedly: A-Jcc

Lawson: QQ to win the hand and double up.
