Level 21:  Blinds 6,000/12,000/2,000 ante

Stephen DiamantasStephen Diamantas (pictured) won this event during the Winter Open back in December, so he’s looking to repeat with a win here today.

He got lucky earlier today when he was all-in against Chris Dombrowski holding AK against Chris’ pocket Queens.  Stephen caught a King on he river to survive, doubling up to over 500k when there were 16 players remaining.

Stephen is now up to over 700k, even after shipping a small double-up to Ronald Touruny, who shoved with QJ offsuit.  Stephen looked him up with pocket 6s.  Ronald flopped a Jack and rivered a four-flush to double-up to about 170k.

Still at 15 players.
