Javier Zarco started Day 4 with a huge chip lead and didn’t put many of them at risk over the first dozen or so hands. That changed when he fired three streets against Jonathan Karamalikis and put himself over 11,000,000 as a result.

Zarco opened the button to 240,000 and Karamalikis called in the big blind. Karamlikis checked the QQ6 flop and Zarco continued for 125,000. The J turn was checked by Karamlikis and Zarco bet 480,000. Karamalikis considered before calling and checked the 10♠ river. Zarco went for it and fired 1,425,000. Karamalikis conceded the pot and takes a hit down to 4,850,000. Zarco is playing 11,100,000.

Halfway through Level 32, Brett Apter and Boris Kolev are both around 2,200,000.
