Joe Sweeney, lasted as long as he could against the bigger stacks on the table. Holding AKx vs Chris’s 66’s

Board does not show and Ace nor a King, knocking out Joe. We are down to 3.

Another Break..another chip count

In what has to be the sickest pot of the whole tournament. Shock and awe !

Ross raises 85K pre-flop, David calls.

Flop – 234 (all spades). Check. Check

Turn – 7d

David leads out 75K…Ross calls.

River – 7c

David bets 135…Ross thinks then tanks then re-raises 300K more. Now it’s David turn to think..and think..and think…and then re-raises 500K more. Ross snap calls thinking David only has a flush. Come to find out David held the A5 of spades to give a Steel Wheel.

Joe, who quietly was up and down all day, with his last 80K went all -in with 9/10 only to get called by Chris’s J/Q. Board did not help Joe and was knocked out of contention.

Main Event – Roger Palombizio – 6th place – $7074

Roger, low on chips pushes with JJ only to get called by David with AK. An ace comes on the flop and that was the end of Roger’s run on the final table. David on a tear and is now the chip leader with almost 2.0M in chips
