The first fifteen minutes of this final table have played out more or less like we thought they would, as the short stacks of John Heaney, Jordan Allan and Daniel Sewnig have all gotten shoves through to increase their stacks slightly.

Those increases dwarf in comparison to Abraham Korotki’s Day 3 start, as he just took down a sizable pot from the former chip leader John Germano, to move Korotki to the top spot at this BPPS final table.

The action was picked up on a board of {As}{7d}{6c}, with Korotki continuing for 37,000. Germano called to see the {7s} pair the board on the turn and Korotki led again, this time betting 90,000. Quickly, Germano announced “250 thousand”, for a raise, only to see Korotki, just as quickly, recheck his cards and announce himself “all-in”.

Germano hated to see that move, as he and Korotki were two of the bigger stacks coming into this final table and the only players who could do serious damage to one another. Eventually, he tapped the table and threw his hand towards the muck, conceding the pot to Korotki.

When the dust settled, Korotki was playing just over 1,600,000, making himself the new chip leader, while Germano is now playing just under 1,100,000.
