Kristy Arnett was riding high as the chip leader at the final table but losing a few pots at the end of the last level and the start of Level 31 put her below 2,000,000. She was done in over the course of two pots and is now on the outside looking in.
Arnett shoved for 1,500,000 under the gun with A♣K♣ and Matt Schultz called off for 880,000 with 6♦6♥. The 5♠4♦2♣8♠2♦ board held for Schultz and he doubled.
Left with 500,000, Arnett called all-in from the big blind when Christopher Franco jammed from the small blind. Franco’s 9♣9♦ had the 7♠6♥ of Arnett dominated and she was drawing dead by the turn on a Q♠9♠5♦Q♦ board. Franco is back up to 2,400,000.
