Mo Alhalwani

In the biggest hand of the tournament so far, Ken O’Donnell was a shocking early exit after the break, going from second in chips to an 18th place payout. Mo Alhalwani found a nut flush over the second nut flush against O’Donnell to move way in front of the field with 4,125,000.

Soon after O’Donnell was eliminated, Jason Klapman was sent out in 17th place to leave the tournament suddenly at two tables.
