In perhaps the most important pot so far on Day 3, Elizabeth Provan is now the Event 67 chip leader after taking down a 2,000,000 chip pot against Javier Zarco.
Brett Apter opened the action with a raise to 51,000 in the hijack and Provan called in the cutoff. Zarco called in the small blind and A♦10♠9♦ flop checked to Provan. She bet 115,000 and only Zarco called. Zarco led on the 4♦ turn for 268,000 and Provan min-raised to 536,000.
Zarco called and then insta-checked the A♠ river. Provan shoved for 600,000 total and Zarco noted how “sick” the spot was before kicking his hand in. Provan did not show and took in the massive pot. She is the chip leader with 2,100,000 while Zarco is cut back to 1,025,000.
