Matt Yorra is already making the most of his second DSE III final table of the series and is currently second in chips. 

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 96 and after thinking it over, Yorra called with K♣Q♠. The J♠108♠ 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.
