The field has had only one elimination this level but chips are moving across the Venetian Poker Room. Bob Bounahra’s stack has been gradually increasing all day and is closing in on the 400,000 mark after taking down a sizable multi-way pot with most of the chips coming from Iverson “Heisenberg” Snuffer.
In a four-way pot with about 55,000 in the middle, Bounahra checked the Q♣J♠7♣ flop from the small blind as did Georgios Karakousis from early position. Johan Sirback bet 24,000 in middle position. Snuffer raised to 75,000 in the cutoff. Only Bounahra called and the K♥ came on the turn. Bounahra checked and Snuffer quickly checked back.
The river was the 9♥ and both players wasted little time checking the pot to showdown. Bounahra showed A♣K♣ which beat the A♥Q♥ of Snuffer. Bounahra is at his Day 2 peak with 380,000 and Snuffer takes a hit back to 225,000.
