Level 25: Blinds 20,000/40,000/4,000 ante
Players Remaining: 10
The stalemate broke in a hurry.
Larry Connor opened to 100,000 from the cutoff and Attilio Bitondo called in the small blind. Frank Reina ripped it in from the big blind for 242,000 and Connor called. Bitondo thought for a minute and called as well.
“I win this pot, I win the tournament!” Reina told the rest.
Bitondo bet 100,000 after the flop and Connor called. The turn prompted a 200,000 bet from Bitondo and Connor moved all in. If Bitondo called it would be for his last 550,000. He talked it through and decided he had to go.
Connor turned Broadway to leave the other two drawing slim to the saving full boat. The river finished the board and Connor had the double knockout to set the final table.
