Max Lehmanski was in a precarious position coming into the Event 56 final table as not a short-stack, but unable to be as aggressive as he was earlier today. Lehmanski lost a few small pots right at the start of the final table and then lost the rest of his chips to Matt Yorra.
Lehmanski shoved the small blind with 9♦6♦ and after thinking it over, Yorra called with K♣Q♠. The J♠10♦8♠ flop gave Lehmanski plenty of outs and he picked up more on the J♦ turn. In what turned out to be a case of “too many outs” Lehmanski bricked the 2♥ river and exited the final table.
Yorra has been gradually increasing his stack for most of Day 3 and is now in second place with 6,750,000.
