Ryan Hickey opened to 20,000 on the button and Andriy Pavlyuk went all in for around 100,000 in the small blind. The big blind folded and Hickey called to put Pavlyuk at risk. Hickey had As 7c against the pocket kings of Pavlyuk. Hickey found an ace on the Ah Js 9d flop, and held on the 2d turn and the 4s river. Pavlyuk gets 11th place for $1,714.
Meanwhile at the other table, Carter Myers raised in middle position and Daniel Sepiol moved all in for around ten big blinds. Sepiol’s pocket threes were behind the pocket aces of Myers, and Myers flopped quad aces just to rub it in. Sepiol is eliminated in 10th place, getting the pay bump up to $2,307. Myers has 660,000 chips after the hand.
