Michael McCarthy and Duff Charette were heads up on a 4c3s2s board. McCarthy lead for 110,000 and Charette made it 250,000 to go. McCarthy verified the amount of the bet, then announced, “All-in.” Charette called off 800,000 total and was at risk.

McCarthy: 8s8h for an overpair
Charette: ksjs for two over cards and a flush draw

Turn and river: jcjd

Charette hit trips and took the land in the hand doubling through McCarthy. After being down to less than two big blinds short of the money, he now holds 1,800,000 with 15 players left.

Anderkin came from behind turning a pair of sevens. Zheng was left second best and hit the rail in 16th place. The bustout earned each of the 15 remaining players a pay bump.

Brett Bader raised to 40,000 from the cutoff and Richard Carr called from the button. It was on Jason Goldman in the big blind and he jammed roughly 320,000. Bader folded while Carr called quickly.

James Peterson and Mirza Nagji recently got all of Peterson’s 1,250,000 chips in the middle preflop in what was the largest pot of the tournament thus far. Nagji — who owned about 1,550,000 chips — was poised to take a huge one. Unfortunately, the pair turned over the same pair — aces.

James Peterson (Seat 7) and Mirza Nagji (Seat 8) stand for the runout. Michael McCarthy (Seat 5) leaves in disgust.

A no-flush runout left for a friendly chop. On the sidelines disappointed, though, was Michael McCarthy. The preflop back and forth scared off his queens. You guessed it, a queen fell on the runout.

Mirza Nagji – 1,575,000
James Peterson – 1,295,000

Duff Charette

If you remember earlier today, Duff Charette caught a bit of bad luck early running into Rob Manjura’s quads and paying off an all-in bet. By his own account he was felted down to just 9,000 chips — less than two big blinds. From there, he managed a number of double-ups including aces into jacks.

Now, about two-and-a-half hours later, he’s found his way into the money and miraculously sits on 190,000 chips with 48 players remaining.

Duff Charette – 190,000
