Nick Scholz limped from under the gun and Alexander Grassia bet to 50,000 from the button. Jeevan Nomula called from the big blind and Scholz came along to the flop.
Nomula and Scholz checked, Grassia continued to 75,000 and Nomula check-raised to 160,000. Scholz folded and Grassia called. The turn was and both players checked. The river was and Nomula bet 120,000 with 195,000 behind. Grassia moved all in, Nomula thought for two minutes and folded his hand.
Nomula dropped under ten big blinds but picked up a nice pot from Yan Jiang to move back over 300K while Grassia took the lead with 1,850,000.
