Botteon vs McConnon

Blinds: 500/1,000

Jason McConnon raised to 2,500 from the button and Brunno Botteon three-bet to 8,500 which McConnon called.

The flop came {7-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}, Botteon continued with a bet of 8,500 which McConnon called.

The turn was the {a-Clubs}, Botteon barreled a bet of 7,700 over the line and was called by McConnon again.

The river completed the board with the {9-Hearts} and Botteon shoved. McConnon tanked for a while and then called for his tournament life and last 32,165 with the {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} for the pair of kings. Botteon tabled {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} for two pair to claim the final spot in the semi-finals.

The four remaining players will return on Sunday to play down to a winner and a recap is to follow.
