Yi-Chih Huang’s sudden surge up the leaderboard has him almost to 2,000,000 after dispatching Ivan Driard from the final table. Driard was short for basically for just about all of the final 10 but is no longer an active participant.
Driard raised to 82,000 under the gun and Huang called from the big blind. Huang put Driard all-in on the 6♥4♣2♣ flop and Driard called for his last 110,000.
Huang’s K♥7♣6♣4♥ had out-flopped the A♣A♦Q♣8♠ of Driard and despite being live to win the hand, Driard came up empty on the 10♠ turn and 3♥ river.
Driard earns almost $9,000 for his near-podium finish and Kenneth Wong is now the short stack with 350,000.
