Scott Wellenbach

Hand #184: Chino Rheem raised the button and to 270,000 and Scott Wellenbach shoved for 1,790,000

Scott Wellenbach: {K-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}
Chino Rheem: {A-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

The flop came {K-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{7-Clubs} and Wellenbach took the lead, but Rheem picked up a double gutshot with the {J-Diamonds} turn.

"Ace is still good," Rheem said and spiked the {9-Spades} on the river to hit a jack-high straight.

Wellenbach's Cinderella run came to an end in third place and he received $671,240.

There will now be a very short break before heads-up play commences and Rheem will have a commanding lead over Daniel Strelitz.
