Robert Cowen

Most of Level 23 went by without much action but Rob Cowen found a double through Jake Tilley near the end to put himself near Tilley for the final table chip lead.

Tilley opened to 60,000 under the gun and Cowen called out of the big blind. Cowen check-called for 120,000 on the 7♣44♠ flop and then called all-in for 81,000 on the 10 turn. Cowen was very live with A♣65♣3♣ but still needed to improve on the river against Tilley’s A♠J♣J♠4.

The 8♣ river was perfect as it gave Cowen a straight and low to scoop the pot. Tilley drops to 560,000 and Cowen is on his heels with 535,000. Trevor Reader is third with 480,000. Julien Martini now the short stack 130,000 as the blinds get set to move up.
