Sean Troha became short-stacked after losing a large all-in to Hector Salgado and the remainder of his stack now belongs to chip leader Lance Howard.
Howard opened to 50,000 from early position and Troha three-bet all-in for 131,000 total. Howard thought for a moment and then called with A♦Q♥4♦2♦ to put the A♠K♣Q♦5♣ of Troha at risk.
The 8♣7♦2♥ flop effectively locked up the low half of the pot for Howard and the 6♦ turn left Troha need to pair up on the river to win the high. The 10♠ river was not the card he needed and he is out in seventh place. Howard is playing 1,050,000 and the chip leader by a few hundred thousand over Salgado and Veerachai Vongxaiburana.
