David Peters opened to 460,000 on the button and Chance Kornuth three-bet to 1,800,000 out of the big blind. Peters responded with a four-bet to 3,900,000 only to see Kornuth move all in for 12,000,000. Peters snapped it off to put Kornuth at risk.
Peters was in prime position to eliminate Kornuth and capture the gold bracelet but the flop did give Kornuth an open ended straight draw. The turn and river brought no further help to the start of Day 3 chipleader, however, forcing him to settle for 2nd place and a $721,144 consolation prize.
Peters, meanwhile, walks away with $1,166,810 and his fourth WSOP bracelet.
