Jake Tilley was the short-stack for all of three-handed play as Trevor Reader dominated that portion of the tournament. Tilley ended up being done in by Rob Cowen and Reader, who took the remainder of his stack.
Cowen raised to 140,000 in the small blind and Tilley called in the big blind. Cowen bet the pot on the 10♣5♣5♦ flop, effectively putting Tilley all-in. Tilley deliberated for a moment but folded, leaving himself with not much behind.
The next hand, Tilley raised to 140,000 in the small blind and Reader put him all-in. Tilley called with A♠J♥10♠6♠ and asked for big cards against Reader’s A♦6♦3♠2♥.
The K♦5♣3♥6♥4♣ gave Reader a straight-six to scoop the pot and eliminated Tilley.
He starts heads up play with 1,480,000 to Cowen’s 725,000.
