Stephen Diamantes grinded down Steve Korfonta to less than 300K and was using his stack to pressure the other two players by moving all in several times. Stephen did it again and with not much left, Korfonta made the call out of the big blind with Kh7h. Diamantes had Ac6c and when Korfonta did not improve we were now heads up with Diamantes holding a 5.15 million to 850K chip advantage.
