Russell Sullivan

Steven Sarmiento opened to 225,000 from the button, Neal Corcoran called in the small blind, and Russell Sullivan ripped it in for 2,875,000 from the big. Sarmiento snap-called, Corcoran folded, and Sullivan let out a small curse.

Sarmiento: AsKd
Sullivan: AhQd

Sullivan was dominated and needed to catch something to double up. It wasn’t meant to be as the all-low 9h8c6c2d8s board sent him out in third place.

Steven Sarmiento – 12,310,000 (123 bb)
Russell Sullivan – Eliminated in 3rd Place ($86,060)

Nick Yunis

Shortly after the break, Nick Yunis and Steven Sarmiento were heads-up with the board complete and reading 9c9h4dQh5c. Yunis shipped for 1,200,000 and Sarmiento called.

Yunis: 9s7c
Sarmiento: 9d8d

Yunis flopped trip nines but so did Sarmiento. Yunis had kicker issues and Sarmiento’s eight played to send Yunis out in fourth place.

Steven Sarmiento – 8,750,000 (88 bb)
Nick Yunis – Eliminated in 4th Place ($64,423)

Neal Corcoran

It was three-ways to a flop of As5h2d, Nick Yunis checked in the small blind, Russell Sullivan checked in the big, and Neal Corcoran bet 160,000 from the button. Only Yunis came along to the Jd turn and he checked. Corcoran bet 525,000 and Yunis called after thinking for two minutes.

Both players checked the 4c river, Yunis announced “five”, and Corcoran tabled 5d4d for two pair, fives and fours. Yunis double and triple checked his cards before mucking the big pot to Corcoran.
