Kammar Andries

With Justin Harvell and Joseph Biegler already in the pot, Kammar Andries moved all in for 640,000. Biegler and Harvell called and checked it down until the board read Ah6c2c5hJh.

Biegler checked again, Harvell tossed out 600,000 and Biegler quickly mucked.

Harvell tabled a rivered set with JcJd and Andries was not happy when he tabled his QhQd.

Bryce McVay

It took two big hands to send Bryce McVay from sitting among the leaders to out in fourth place.

First, it was Rodney Moret-Rojas putting his last 1,200,000 in the middle with Ax6x against McVay’s AxKx and the rivered six sent McVay down to 550,000.

Two hands later, Moret-Rojas limped from under the gun and McVay moved all in from the big blind for 525,000 total. Moret-Rojas called and McVay was in good shape again.

McVay: KhQs
Moret-Rojas: KsJs

McVay was dominating and improved on the Qd4d3s flop. Moret-Rojas added a gutshot Broadway draw on the Td turn and the unlikely beat finished on the Ac river to send McVay out in fifth place.

This was McVay’s third final table appearance of the series and good enough to move him into the lead in the Casino Champion race.

Rodney Moret-Rojas – 3,450,000 (69 bb)
Bryce McVay – Eliminated in 5th place ($8,738)

Justin Harvell moved to the top of the leaderboard after two big hands. First against Bryce McVay when his JhTd was good on the Jc4c2sJdTc board for a big pot.

Soon after, he was heads up with chip leader Rodney Moret-Rojas with the board reading JhJs6s3s and Harvell checked. Moret-Rojas bet 325,000 and Harvell check-raised all in for 970 on top.

Moret-Rojas thought for a minute and called.

Harvell: Ks8s
Moret-Rojas: Ad6c

Harvell was far ahead with his second-nut flush against Moret-Rojas’ jacks up. Harvell dodged a full house on the Ah river for the big double.

Justin Harvell – 3,300,000 (66 bb)
Rodney Moret-Rojas – 1,100,000 (22 bb)

Rodney Moret-Rojas leads heading into Level 28

The five remaining players grabbed a quick break from the tables and cards are back in the air with Rodney Moret-Rojas still in the lead. No one is in the sub-20 big blind danger zone so we expect action to slow down over the next few levels.

Seat 3: Bryce McVay – 2,475,000 (50 bb)

Aaron Miles

Aaron Miles made a double against Bryce McVay and they mixed it up again. Miles opened to 120,000 from the small blind and McVay called from the big blind to the AdTs5d flop.

Miles continued for 150,000 and McVay called again to see the 4h turn. Miles moved all in for his remaining 700,000 and McVay quickly called.

Miles: KhTh
McVay: AcQh

Miles was behind with second pair against McVay’s top pair and the 6c river ended Miles short-lived comeback.

Bryce McVay – 2,100,000 (53 bb)
Aaron Miles – Eliminated in 6th place ($6,666)

After Jeff Bohanek and Matthew Yorra hit the rail in a hurry, Aaron Miles took his shot to double up or get paid out.

He three-bet shoved for 455,000 from the cutoff after a Justin Harvell open. Bryce McVay called on the button after a short think and Justin Harvell inquired about McVay’s stack before releasing his hand.

Miles: AsTc
McVay: AhQd

Miles was dominated and looking at an exit but the Td7h4d flop put him in the lead. He asked the dealer for a hold and he survived the 6c turn and Kc river to double.

Aaron Miles – 1,100,000 (28 bb)
Bryce McVay – 1,420,000 (36 bb)

Matthew Yorra

The surprisingly quick pace at the final table continued. After Michael Kopanski was eliminated in ninth place, Jeff Bohanek followed in eighth with Michael Yorra getting his chips in the middle soon after.

The Day 2 starting chip leader was all in with KxQx but Justin Harvell’s Ax4x was best in the end.

It was a rough day for Yorra who began the day with a huge lead. A series of bad beats pulled his stack down until he hit the final table in the middle of the pack. The SHR Poker regular was unable to bounce back and went out in seventh place for $5,157.

Michael Kopjanski

Kammar Andries opened for 80,000 from under the gun and Michael Kopjanski moved all in from the hijack for 175,000. Justin Harvell thought about coming along in the small blind but mucked before Andries called.

Andries: 9h8h
Kopjanski: AhQc

Kopjanski was alive and ahead for the double and faded the Jh5s2c flop. Andries moved ahead on the 9s tur and Kopjanski was eliminated after the 2d river.

Kammar Andries – 1,450,000 (48 bb)
Michael Kopjanski – Eliminated in 9th place ($3,220)
