From early position, the man who holds the record for most consecutive cashes in the World Series of Poker Main Event with five in a row (2010-2014), Ronnie Bardah, opened with a raise to 2,300. Next to action in middle position was the recently-moved Byron Kaverman, who took over the seat that Kyle Julius once occupied. Kaverman took his time like he so often does, and then three-bet to 5,500. In the hijack seat, Vesa Leikos moved all in for 27,300.
Play folded back to Bardah, and he gave it a moment of thought before folding his hand. Kaverman also took a moment to think, but folded as well, and Leikos won the pot.
