Shawn Buchanan opened from the hijack seat with a raise to 55,000. Adalfer Morales Gamarra was on the button and he three-bet, making it 195,000. Action folded back to Buchanan who thought for a good while before moving all in for 880,000. Gamarra quickly called.
Buchanan stayed safe as the board ran out keeping him in the lead the whole way. With that double Buchanan moves over 1.5 million while Gamarra drops back down to one of the shorter stacks left in the tournament.
