Event 49: $600 Big O $75,000 Guarantee
Total Entrants: 288
Players Remaining: 7
In a battle of the two short stacks at the Big O final table, Stephen Johnson sent William Rector to the exits and the field is now down to just seven players.
Johnson raised from the small blind to 70,000 and Rector put his few remaining chips in from the big blind. Johnson called with A♥K♣Q♠A♣4♠ and Rector needed to catch with his A♠9♦6♥6♦3♠.
The Q♥10♦10♥8♥2♣ put no low on board and Johnson’s pocket pair was enough to take the pot. He improves to 240,000 and Rector earns over $4,000 for reaching the final table.
