At one table, Allen Kessler was seen raking in a pot to double up his stack. Kessler held in the small blind and spiked a king on the river for top pair to keep his tournament hopes alive.
Next door, another big pot was brewing and Flavio Decataldo was in the middle of it once again. After an all in for 149,000 from under the gun, Eyal Bensimhon just called in middle position. Decataldo also shoved all in for 420,000 in the big blind and Bensimhon called.
The board ran out and Decataldo's pocket nines held on to eliminate one opponent and double up through Bensimhon.
