Jonathan Dimmig managed to ladder up a single pay spot after Will Givens doubled through him earlier in the level but could not complete his comeback story. Dimmig won multiple all-ins to survive longer than Nancy Nguyen but never pulled back over the 300,000 mark.
Dimmig shoved for 245,000 from early position and got a taker in Ross Fabrizio in the hijack. Dimmig’s Q♠9♦ had life against Fabrizio’s A♥J♥ but he was drawing slim following the K♥7♣4♣ flop. The 5♦ turn left him needing a queen or a nine and the 4♦ river put him away.
The start of Day 2 chip leader earns $3,980 and Fabrizio is playing 1,850,000. Dustin Lee is the new short stack at the final table with 425,0000 and “Jack Smith” is narrowly ahead of him with 650,000.
