The post-flop play that has been the theme of the Event 67 final table continues with Brett Apter and Javier Zarco both increasing their stacks with the value received from their big blind hands.
Boris Kolev limped in on the button and Georgios Karakousis completed the small blind. Zarco checked his option and the K♣5♠2♣ flop checked to Kolev. He bet 170,000 and only Zarco called. The two players checked the 5♣ turn and Zarco went a step up with 430,000 on the river. Kolev gave it a think and called. Zarco showed A♣2♠ and took in the pot. He is playing 5,550,000 and Kolev is down to just 1,200,000.
Tanveer Dhanjal opened to 145,000 in early position and Apter defended his big blind. Apter check-called a 150,000 bet on the 8♣6♠4♦ flop and then bet 325,000 on the 4♠ turn. Dhanjal called and Apter bet 550,000 more on the 10♣ river. Dhanjal called and Apter showed him 9♠7♠ for a straight. Dhanjal stared up at the ceiling and watched his stack drop to 1,400,000.
Apter gave a few chips back the next hand by doubling up Omar Zazay but is at his final table peak with 3,000,000.
