Calen McNeil opened the action for a raise. Kal Raichura three-bet, Jim Bucci called, Nick Kost folded the big blind, and McNeil called. The flop came and it was checked to Raichura who bet. He was called by both players. The turn was the and it was checked around. The river was the and Bucci led out with a bet inducing a fold from McNeil. Raichura made the call and would take down the pot when his for the nut flush was better than Bucci's for trip 6's. With that pot, Raichura moved into the chip lead and Bucci trails the pack as the short stack.
Raichura would take another 300,000+ from McNeil a few hands later when he made a full house against McNeil's aces up to add to his chip lead and threaten McNeil's shot at winning back-to-back bracelets in this event.
