Mark Manesh led the final table of Event 18 until he didn’t. James Rice took most of Manesh’s chips during Level 30 and then finished him off to close the 40-minute stanza.
Manesh changed his standard raise of 275,000 to 280,000 from the button and Rice pushed all-in from the big blind to put Manesh at risk.
Rice’s Q♥Q♠ led the A♠10♥ of Manesh and the 8♣7♠3♦9♣K♠ board sealed the deal.
Rice is back in front as the blinds go up again.
James Rice – 6,740,000
Bobby Poe – 6,285,000
Sean Jazayeri – 3,230,000
Mark Manesh – 4th place ($27,493)
