Gollins was more than happy with her play on Monday and said she minimized her risks in order to amass her massive stack.

“I think I played pretty well. I didn’t really have to win flips today because I played out most of my hands. I tried not to flip, actually. I waited for spots, I was super patient all day, and I took advantage when I saw the opportunity.”

Dubuque Gets Paid on Big River Bet with Second Pair

blaisebourgeois • Level 29: Blinds 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

With around 2,800,000 in the pot on a {4-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{7-Spades} board, Andrew Dubuque bet 1,500,000.

Liran Betito pondered his decision for over 90 seconds before he called.

Dubuque turned over {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} and stared anxiously at Betito, who tossed his cards into the muck, which caused Dubuque to punch the air in excitement as he took his stack to over eight million.

Pahuja Mistakenly Tanks for Pay Jump

MikePatrick • Level 29: Blinds 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

Vineet Pahuja raised to 1,600,000 from the small blind, leaving himself just a small handful of small denomination chips behind just in case.

Rodolfo Romeira then moved all in for more to potentially put Pahuja all in if he tossed in those remaining chips.

Pahuja, who later said he thought a pay jump was coming, as 46 players were shown on the tournament clock, but in actuality, the next pay jump would be at 44 players, stalled, not committing the final chips until after several minutes and the clock being called on him.

As the floorman counted down from five seconds, Puhuja tossed in the chips and frustratedly tabled {k-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}, while Romero showed {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}.

Pahuja began to pack up his belongings, but a deuce in the window of the {7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop was on the verge of bailing him out. The {5-Hearts} came on the turn, and the river brought the {6-Hearts}, keeping Pahuja's deuces ahead to take the pot and keep his night alive.

With roughly 2,300,000 in the middle on the {8-Spades}{a-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{q-Spades} board, Christopher Dow checked from the big blind over to Laurie Tournier in middle position, who went all in for 1,485,000.

Dow went into the take for around two minutes before puffing out his cheeks and finally making the call.

Tournier flipped over {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds} and Dow flashed the {a-Diamonds} before exposing the {4-Spades}, giving Tournier the full double and sending her to over five million.
