About 1,000,000 behind Georgios Karakousis to start the final table, Javier Zarco is now near even with the chip leader after taking down a multi-way pot.

Zarco opened to 110,000 under the gun and Jamie Rosen called on his direct left. Boris Kolev called on the button and the flop came out A♠8♠7♣. Zarco and Rosen checked to Kolev, and he bet 145,000. Zarco asked Kolev how much he had behind and when Kolev responded, Zarco raised to 485,000. Rosen and Kolev got out of the way and Zarco took the pot.

He is just over 4,000,000 and Kolev takes a small hit to 1,950,000. Karakousis is slightly ahead with 4,100,000.
