The pace slowed after the three-table redraw but they are heating back up. The biggest hand of the tournament so far saw Alfred Karlsson open to 50,000 from under the gun and Bryon Schenk three-bet to 76,000 from the cutoff.
The button and blinds released before Karlsson called to the flop. Karlsson checked, Schenk bet 80,000 and Karlsson called again.
It was a bigger bet of 325,000 from Schenk after Karlsson checked and he called after checking out Schenk’s stack. He had 417,000 behind and put them in the middle after Karlsson checked the river.
“I have a good hand,” Karlsson told Schenk.
After a few minutes, he tossed in a calling chip and Schenk tabled his hand.
“I only have three sevens,” Schenk said to get a laugh from the rest of the table. His was good and Karlsson mucked. Schenk moved into the lead while Karlsson was left with a short stack.
Bryon Schenk – 1,900,000 (79 bb)
Alfred Karlsson – 350,000 (15 bb)
