Jan_Kores • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante
John Amato

Hand #77: Jake Schindler made it 120,000 under the gun and John Amato shoved his last 295,000 on the button. Schindler called it off.

John Amato: {A-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}
Jake Schindler: {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}

The dealer rolled out a {A-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{Q-Spades} flop, pushing Amato ahead. Schindler couldn't hit a seven on the {3-Spades} and {4-Clubs} runout and Amato doubled while Schindler dropped to the bottom of the leaderboard.

Hand #78: Shawn Buchanan made it to 135,000 but Amato was ready to play for his stack again, jamming 740,000. Buchanan wasn't interested.

Hand #79: David Peters got a walk.

Hand #80: Eric Blair raised to 140,000 in the hijack and Jake Schindler three-bet to 425,000, putting in the majority of his belongings. Blair let it go.

Hand #81: Peters made it 130,000 on the button and David Laka called in the big. The flop came {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Peters took it down with a 90,000-chip continuation-bet.
