Craig Varnell

Heitor Saraiva opened to 250,000 from the hijack and Jeremy Joseph three-bet to 750,000 from the cutoff. Seth Fischer folded his button and Craig Varnell cold four-bet his entire stack of 4,075,000 from the small blind.

Saraiva thought for a few minutes and moved all in over the top for 5,650,000. Joseph popped up his chair and asked to count down Saraiva’s stack. He thought for a minute himself and called having both players covered in the massive pot.

Joseph: AdKh
Saraiva: JcJh
Varnell: 8c8d

Saraiva was ahead to nearly triple up but Joseph was live for the double knockout. The board ran out 4s3h2dTdTs and the jacks held to send Varnell out in sixth while Saraiva stacked up the lead.

Heitor Saraiva – 15,625,000 (125 bb)
Jeremy Joseph – 5,600,000 (45 bb)
Craig Varnell – Eliminated in 6th Place ($43,580)
