Steve Korfonta opened the action to 60K and Steven Diamantas re-raised to 160K. Korfonta made a huge re-raise to 560K. “That’s 400 more?” Diamantas asked. After the amount was confirmed, Diamantas announced that he was all in and he was snap called by Korfonta. The third player at the table, Ryan, clapped his hands, knowing an elimination would move him up significantly in pay. Diamantas turned over Aces and Korfonta sighed as he turned over Queens. A cooler of a hand three handed. The board ran out 7s3h2d5dJc and Diamantas pumped his fist as he doubled up to take the chip lead with approximately 3.35 million. Steve Korfonta is still alive with 1.55 million and Ryan Sponaugle is sitting with about 1.1 million.
