Players Info - Day 2
The preflop action escaped us but we do know that Laurette Thurber got her stack of roughly 675,000 all in against David Channon.
The flop looked good for Thurber, who improved to a set, but Channon picked up a gutshot Broadway straight draw. Unfortunately for her, it came in when the spiked on the turn. The failed to pair the board on the river and Thurber was ousted in 26th place for $1,719.
Marvin Imutan followed her out the door in 25th place, which means the final 24 players will now redraw down to three tables. Additionally, the tournament shifts from a big blind ante to a per-player format.
The under-the-gun player raised to 125,000 and action folded around to Marvin Imutan, who moved all in for 260,000 from the big blind. The call was made and the hands turned up.
The flop was rather lackluster, but the turn was perfect for Imutan as it gave him a set and the guaranteed double. The was run out on the river and Imutan was pushed the pot.
We picked up the action on a flop of when Robert Fortuno checked from the small blind and Matthew Blagg bet 50,000 from the big. Marvin Imutan, the under-the-gun player, called and then Fortuno woke up with a check-raised to 100,000.
Blagg called and then Imutan popped it to 400,000. Fortuno then called before Blagg jammed all in for just over 700,000. Imutan rejammed for 1.2 million and Fortuno thought long and hard before folding the face up.
"Pair the board," the Imutan called. Indeed, he was looking to fill up in order to overcome the flopped nuts of Blagg.
The turn put out some chop options, but the river was a brick to send the monster pot, and the chip lead, over to Blagg.
