Things escalated quickly on the turn. Michael Gathy bet before Verel instantly moved all-in and Gathy put the chips in just as fast.
Verel held a set of aces, but Gathy had turned the queen-high flush. Verel was looking for the board to pair or another spade, but it was not to be as the river fell the , and the Day 3 chip leader was eliminated.
It was a fantastic run for Verel, who was a relative unknown at the WSOP. He collects a nice payday for his efforts.
Meanwhile, four-time bracelet winner Michael Gathy moves into the chip lead.
