On a flop of Js 9s 3h and three players in the pot, Thomas Koral checked in the small blind, Lance Howard checked in the big blind, and Chris Dow bet 65,000 on the button. Koral then check-raised all in for 280,000. Howard folded and action was on Dow. He thought it over and announced, “I call. Good luck.”
Dow: Kd Qh
Koral: Tc 8c
Both players were drawing, but Dow was ahead with king-high. The turn was the 4d and the Ts river gave Dow a straight. Koral was eliminated in the hand, finishing in 11th place for a payday of $16,880.
With Koral’s elimination, the remaining ten players are bagging for the night, and will return tomorrow at 1 p.m. to play down to a winner. A full recap and final table draw with chip counts will be posted shortly.
