Players Remaining: 8
The average stack is currently only 25 big blinds at the Event 12 final table and every all-in comes with major consideration. Ian Pearson fell below 10 big blinds but found what equaled out to almost a triple up to put him back into contention.
Will Givens opened under the gun to 125,000 and Ross Fabrizio called on his direct left. Action folded over to Pearson, who jammed for 555,000 in the cutoff. Givens released and Fabrizio called to put Pearson at risk.
Pearson found himself miles ahead with 7♦7♠ against the 6♥6♠ of Fabrizio and the Q♠J♠7♥ flop put the hand on ice. Pearson secured the pot on the turn to move up to 1,400,000 and Fabrizio slides to 1,350,000.
