Ben Yu raised the pot to 900,000 and Shaun Deeb three-bet the pot to 2.7 million. Yu, who had a stack of around 6.4 million, called, and the flop came . Deeb bet the pot and Yu called all in.
Deeb was in the lead with his pair of aces, but Yu had plenty of outs with a straight and flush draw. Fives and sixes were live, too, but the turn and river failed to improve Yu to send him to the rail in second place for $866,924. Yu narrowly missed out on his third bracelet, while Deeb completed that exact feat and took revenge for his runner-up finish to Yu in the 2017 WSOP Event #34: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship.
A recap of today's action is to follow.
