Bobby Conte open-shoved for 960,000 from early position and it folded to Guo Chen on the button. He took his time to think and called all in for his last 610,000. The blinds released and Chen was the one at risk.
It was a race but Chen smashed the flop for the nut flush. After the turn, Conte was down to a single out for the straight flush but the river did not help.
Conte was down to seven bigs and moved all in from under the gun in the next hand. Ryan McKnight was the only one to come along and his was enough to end Conte’s Championship with on the board.
Guo Chen – 1,345,000 (27 bb)
Bobby Conte – Eliminated in 10th place ($19,766)
