Players Remaining: 8
Marcelo Drumm was treading water for the earlier portion of the final table but is now second in chips thanks to a double through Will Givens.
Picking up the action on a board of 7♠5♥4♠Q♦, Givens bet 215,000 into a pot of about 300,000 out of the big blind and Drumm called from early position.
Givens put Drumm to the test on the K♣ river for all of Drumm’s chips. Drumm double-checked his cards and slid in his last 655,000, turning over A♦A♥. Givens said a resigned “nice hand” as he showed 10♦7♦. Givens is playing 450,000 and suddenly in danger of being the next player eliminated.
