Ivan Luca opened for 140,000 under the gun and his neighbor David Peters made the call. Nick Petrangelo right next to him three-bet to 490,000 and action quickly folded back to Luca. Luca thought about it for a bit before folding.

Petrangelo had 3,080,000 in chips and had Peters with 2,905,000 just slightly covered.

The dealer and floor counted out the stacks carefully, and Petrangelo found out soon enough he was left with
Viacheslav Goryachev raised to 120,000 and Nick Petrangelo called from the button. The flop came down and Goryachev bet 150,000 and Petrangelo made the call.
On the turn the hit and this time it was Goryachev who checked to Petrangelo. Petrangelo bet 255,000 and the Russian player made the call.
The river brought the and both players checked.
Goryachev showed but mucked when Petrangelo showed for a pair of aces. Petrangelo had a tough level, but on the penultimate hand he manage to rake in some chips. The chip counts will follow shortly as players are about to go on dinner break.
