Congratulations to John Bitakis from Stockney, IL who finished 3rd in our DeepStack Championship Event #47 $1,100 NLH MonsterStack $500K GTD winning $47,600.

Arnaud Enselme moved all in for 3,670,000 from the button and was quickly called by John Bitakis in the big blind who had an additional 220,000 behind.

Enselme: A♦ 7♥
Bitakis: A♠ 9♦

Enselme was at risk of elimination until the board ran out 6♦ 2♠ 7♦ 5♥ 7♣ giving him the winning hand with trip sevens.

In the following hand Kane Lai called from the button. Bitakis called off his remaining chips from the small blind. Enselme checked from the big blind.

Lai and Enselme checked down the 5♣ T♠ A♣ 2♠ 6♥ board to the river before Lai fired out 400,000. Enselme folded.

Lai tabled 6♠ 5♠ for two pair and eliminated Bitakis after he showed Q♦ 4♠ for queen-high.
