A short stack when the final table started, Pete Mall became even shorter when he lost 38,000 to Julien Martini in a hand that didn’t go past the flop. Mall was eliminated a few hands later by Jake Tilley, who is the new chip leader.
Mall opened to 55,000 in early position and Tilley called on the button. Mall moved all-in for 80,000 on the K♣10♣2♣ flop and Tilley called. Tilley had flopped the nuts A♣7♣6♣2♥ and Mall was drawing to an emergency low A♦K♠4♠3♦. The 5♠ turn gave him more outs but the 2♦ river was not the right card.
Tilley leads with 520,000, which is close to one-quarter of the total chips in play.
