Ara Abkarian

Ara Abkarian was under five big blinds with the start of the new level and was soon all-in with a chance to triple up as he had earlier at the final table.

Eric Wasylenko raised to 450,000 on the button and Abkarian put his final 570,000 in from the small blind. Oscar Carrasco called from the big blind as did Wasylenko.

Carrasco and Wasylenko checked the K9♣5♣ flop and Carrasco checked the 6 turn. Wasylenko bet 600,000 and Carrasco folded. Wasylenko opened up Q9 and was ahead of the J7 of Abkarian.

The river bricked and Abkarian is out. Once down to five big blinds, Wasylenko (7,780,000) holds almost half of the chips in play.
