Jason Thalas’s control of the chip lead is no more as Marcelo Drumm has wrested that spot away. Drumm has surged thanks to a few big hands in recent levels and just took down another important pot, this time, against Patrick Beirne.
Drumm opened to 125,000 in the cutoff and Beirne defended his big blind. On the ensuing 10♥6♣5♣J♦10♣ run out, Beirne check-called for 150,000, 200,000, and 300,000. Once the final bet was called, Drumm turned over J♣J♥ for a turned full house. Beirne flashed Q♣Q♦ and is now down to 1,400,000.
Drumm is playing 3,200,000 and is about 700,000 ahead of Thalas.
