David Williams

As expected, a lot of short stacks hit the payout desk when they were unable to spin it up. Mark Cannon and Solange Lucas began Day 2 with less than a starting stack and dropped early but David Williams is sticking around for a little longer.

He saw Joseph Murphy move all in from early position for about 60,000 and Akeelo Rhoden came along with the bigger stack. Williams was sitting in the big blind with only 13,000 after paying the ante and called at risk.

Murphy: 5c5s
Rhoden: AsJs
Williams: 7h3c

Williams needed to catch something to triple up and flopped an open-ended straight draw on the Ts9c8c flop that got there on the 6h turn. The Ad river finished the board to improve Rhoden for the bigger side pot. Williams tripled and Rhoden made a nice addition despite having the second-best hand.

David Williams – 45,000 (6 bb)
Akeelo Rhoden – 145,000 (18 bb)
Joseph Murphy – Eliminated
