Chris Vitch - 3rd Place
Chris Vitch - 3rd Place

2-7 Triple Draw:

The short-stacked Chris Vitch was on the button and raised to 80,000, which Brandon Adams called from the big.

Adams drew two and Vitch one. Adams then check-called a 40,000 bet and drew one while Vitch stood pat.

Adams checked for the second time and Vitch bet 80,000, leaving himself just 15,000 behind. Adams check-raised and Vitch called off. Adams then stood pat.

"Well, I've got a problem," said Vitch. He took his time before ultimately staying pat with {9-}{8-}{7-}{5-}{3-}. Unfortunately for him, it was no good as Adams held {9-}{7-}{6-}{3-}{2-}.

The final two are now on a short break as the tournament staff prepares for heads-up play.
