The next player to exit from the final table is John Guth, and his elimination results in Veerachai Vongxaiburana becoming the chip leader with a monster pot working in his favor.
Picking up the action on a flop of 10♦7♣3♠, Vongxaiburana checked from the big blind and Frankie O’Dell bet 70,000. Guth called and Vongxaiburana potted it to about 230,000. O’Dell folded and then Guth moved all-in for 250,000 total. Vongxaiburana called and turned over A♥K♣10♣7♦ for two top pair with Guth showing A♦J♥10♥3♥ for a lesser two pair. The 2♥ turn gave Guth a low draw but the 9♦ river didn’t allow him to stay alive.
Vongxaiburana scooped the whole pot and he is now playing close to 1,000,000.
