Christopher Franco’s chip decline at the final table has coincided with the rise of Kristy Arnett’s. On Franco’s direct left, Arnett has taken a few pots from her neighbor but turned her sights on Feng Wen Chen in a recent hand.

Picking up the action on a flop of Q♣5♣4, Arnett bet what looked like 100,000 from the small blind and Chen called in the big blind. Arnett bet 125,000 on the 5 turn and Chen raised to 325,000. Arnett thought for a moment and dropped in a call.

Both players checked the 10 river and Arnett rolled over 86 for a flush. Chen flicked his hand in and is down to 750,000. Arnett is the chip leader with about 3,300,000 with Karo Galstyan the only other player over 2,000,000. Franco is third with 1,950,000. Updated counts are below.
