Frankie O’Dell came into the Event 46 final table as the most experienced player but that experience didn’t let him win the crucial pots necessary to hang around long enough to make the podium. It was Veerachai Vongxaiburana who busted O’Dell and he is back in first place on the leaderboard.
O’Dell got al of his chips (approximately 350,000) in on a flop of 9♠8♦7♦ with A♦A♥7♣6♣ against the K♠K♦5♦4♠ of Vongxaiburana. O’Dell was ahead but Vongxaiburana held plenty of outs and added to his collection on the 9♠ turn, giving him two flush draws. The Q♠ river sealed O’Dell’s fate and he earns over $5,000 for another deep finish in a mixed game event at the Venetian.
Vongxaiburana is playing 1,550,000 and in possession of nearly half the chips in play.
