Bierria Has a Monster Stack as Two Players Bust

• Nível 10: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

Corey Bierria with {q-Spades}{q-Hearts} had an opponent all in with {6-Diamonds}{6-Spades}. Bierria flopped a set on a {q-Spades}{3-Spades}{9-Hearts} flop, the {6-Hearts} turn gave his opponent some hope of a miracle run-out, but the {2-Diamonds} river sealed the knockout as Bierria took the tournament chip lead.

"Right place, right time," Bierria said as he stacked 1,800,000.

On the next hand at this table, John Lyons shoved his short-stack with {10-Hearts}{5-Spades} against D.J. Alexander with {a-Spades}{6-Clubs}. Lyons missed the {a-Hearts}{4-Spades}{6-Spades}{7-Hearts}{2-Clubs} board and was sent to the rail.
