Peter Eichhardt’s freight train is running away from the rest of the final table and he is over 1,500,000 with his elimination of Jeffrey Palarino.
Palarino opened to 56,000 in early position and Eichhardt called in the hijack. The two went heads up to the A♦K♦3♥ flop and both checked. Palarino bet the pot on the J♠ turn to effectively put himself all-in and Eichhardt called with Q♦10♦8♦8♥. Palarino had that straight matched with Q♠J♥10♥8♠ but the 9♦ river gave Eichhardt a flush to secure the hand.
Eichhardt’s stack swells event more and he is in control of half the chips in play.
