Viliyan Petleshkov managed to gradually climb up the chip counts through the first few levels of the final table but is now in second place with his bustout of Matt Bond.
Bond shoved under the gun for 1,480,000 with K♠Q♣. and Petleshkov called next door with A♣J♠. The 9♠8♣3♦7♥4♥ board ran pure for Petlshkov and he is playing 6,300,000, good enough for second place behind Neil Patel. James Dempsey and Justin Liberto are both in the danger zone as both are below 15 big blinds.
