As expected the all-in has picked up at the Event 63 final table. It has not resulted in any eliminations thus far, but chips are being pushed around.
The first double came to Weiyi Mo through Kristy Arnett. Arnett opened to 225,000 in middle position and Mo shoved for 760,000 on the button. Arnett thought for a moment and then called with A♦3♦. Mo was ahead with Q♣Q♠ and held through the 8♠3♠2♠4♣6♦ board to double. Arnett falls to 2,235,000.
The next hand, Daniel Bland double up through Christopher Franco. The two were flipping for Bland’s last 1,425,000 with Bland holding 10♦10♥ to the A♥K♦ of Franco. The Q♠J♥8♥6♥9♠ board was a good one for Bland and he is the new chip leader.
Franco was down to 1,000,000 but got those chips back the very next hand against Karo Galstyan when his A♣3♠ caught up to Galstyan’s 10♦10♥ on a board of A♦J♣4♦3♥K♣. Galstyan is below 10 big blinds.
