Final Day Action

Day 2 of the event began with just nine players, and it was not long before one took an exit. Unfortunately for Carlos Guerrero, he claimed the first payout of the day. Guerrero fell short during the first round of play, shipping most of his stack to 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Joe McKeehen, who in return finished him off. Guerro moved all in for his remaining stack with jack-six and was called by McKeehen's queen-seven. A queen high board rolled out and Guerrero was the first to leave.

The next person to drop was Nicholas Verderamo, who is fresh off of a WSOP high-roller victory in Baltimore. Once he fell out of contention the unofficial final table was formed and bracelet winner Michael Wang was leading the way. Chris Caruso sat as the table short stack and grinded as long as possible before eventually putting it in with ace-eight versus the queens of Wang. The board ran out dry and Caruso dipped out in seventh.

Kenny Hunyh started the day second in chips but fell below average rather quickly and when it looked like the tide was finally turning on his Day 2, he was caught in a cooler of a hand with Gintautas Putinas. Putinas opened with kings, Hunyh shoved with queens, Putinas called and the rest is history as Hunyh was sent packing in sixth. Wang lost a monster pot to Stashin, running into three nines and just hands later he moved all in with ace-four. McKeehen called with ace-nine and took down the pot, sending Wang out in fifth.

McKeehen moved into second but quickly dropped a large pot to Stashin who then had a monstrous chip lead. The next hand saw McKeehen attempt a bluff on a four-heart board and Qi Hu took his time with the decision. McKeehen called clock and Hu elected to call just as time was running out, tabling a rivered pair of threes, which beat the ace-high bluff of McKeehen. A few hands later McKeehen moved it all-in with ace-king against the ace-eight of Hu. The river brought a devastating card for the two-time bracelet winner as an eight peeled off, sending him out in fourth place.

Three-handed play started with Stashin holding a large lead, but Putinas started to stack up quickly and eventually put Stashin to the test on a six-three-two board. The players four-bet jammed all of their chips into the pot for what was the biggest pot of the day, with Stashin having just a few hundred thousand more. Putinas held top pair against Stashin's middle pair with a flush draw and the board failed to bring a flush for Stashin but the three river did give him trips and the pot, eliminating Putinas.

Hu and Stashin played heads up for just a hand before a champion was crowned. Stashin opened from the button, Hu defended and the ace-jack-ten board peeled off. Hu check-called a bet on the flop and an ace fell on the turn. Hu check-called another bet on the turn and a king completed the board. Stashin jammed, Hu quickly called with his three bullets but they were not enough as Stashin tabled queen-five for a straight, eliminating Hu out in second place for respectable $24,405.

That wraps it up for the PokerNews coverage of the BFPO Six-Max but tune in to Event #17: $2,700 Championship for all of the action as the day unfolds.

Mike Stashin opened to 25,000 from the button, Qi Hu defended and the dealer fanned out {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}{10-Spades} on the flop. Action checked to Stashin, he bet 15,000 and Hu check-called to see the {a-Diamonds} turn card.

Hu check-called a bet of 45,000 on the turn and the {k-Hearts} then hit the felt, completing the board. Hu tapped the table and Stashin moved all in.

Hu called almost instantly, tabling {a-Spades}{9-Clubs} for three aces but it was not enough as Stashin had shown {q-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} for a rivered straight, taking down the pot as Hu was eliminated in second for a respectable $24,405.

The flop read {6-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} and there was around 100,00 in the middle when Gintautas Putinas led out with a bet. Mike Stashin raised to 120,000 and Putinas then three-bet to 275,000. Stashin jammed and Putinas called, putting himself at risk.

Gintautas Putinas: {a-Hearts}{6-Spades}
Mike Stashin: {9-Clubs}{3-Clubs}

An {8-Diamonds} landed on the turn and Putinas was still in the lead. The river came down a lead changing {3-Hearts}, shipping the pot to Stashin with his trip treys, eliminating Putinas from the tournament in third place.

The river came down an unfortunate card for the two-time WSOP bracelet winner as an {8-Clubs} hit the river and Hu took down the pot, eliminating McKeehen from the tournament.
