Joe DeSanto took a nice sized pot from Norman Rodriguez with a set of 8s and Joe’s back up to about 1.3 million. Norman’s stack has shrunk to about 850,000.
Over on table 2, Otto Dierkes raised big from the button, then Ezra Gheriani moved in from the small blind. Otto called, showing pocket Kings, but Ezra, who was the shorter stack, had pocket Aces.
Otto’s wife Nina has been sweating him all day and she stood behind him saying “give him a King!” She got her wish as the board ran out 5 5 4 3 K and Otto took the pot with Kings-full. He’s stacking close to 1.5 million and is now the chip leader.
Ezra hit the rail in 16th place ($332).
Heading out before Ezra were Chris Lemmo (18th) and Tislam DuPont (17th). Both earned $332 as well.
