Alex Conatser

John Gribben raised to 150,000 on the button, and Alex Conatser three-bet shoved for 1.4 million in the big blind. Gribben called.

Alex Conatser: {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}
John Gribben: {k-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}

The {a-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} flop was safe for Conatser, but the {k-Hearts} turn hit Gribben with a pair of kings. Conatser couldn't find a five on the {8-Hearts} river, and Gribben takes the chip lead into heads-up action with Chris Lindner. Blind levels will be reduced to 20 minutes in length during heads-up play.
