Johnson Goes Runner-Runner To Cripple Vogel An Move Over Average

Event 7 (Day 2)
Level 25 (12,000/24,000/4,000)
Total Entries: 414
Players Remaining: 13
Chip Average: 640,000
Adam Johnson (Norwood, MA)
There are a few players who have been "under the radar" throughout the day that are now peaking at the right time and Adam Johnson is one of them, after winning a flip the "hard way" to cripple Chris Vogel and move himself up to the 750,000 chip mark.

The action was picked up with Johnson open shoving the button for just over 300,000 and Vogel calling in the big blind, having Johnson slightly covered, with both players tabling stander hands for their stack sizes.

Johnson held [7c][7d] and would need his pair to hold to win the flip against Vogel's [Ad][Kh].

Johnson's flip wouldn't look good on the [8d][Kc][10c] flop, but he picked up a flush draw with the [4c] turn.

Not everyone at the table saw it, but Vogel definitely did, giving out an audible groan as the [9c] completed the board and Johnson's flush.

Vogel would be eliminated on one of the very next hands and Johnson, after hovering near the chip average for much of the last few hours, is now well over that mark, just a few spots from the Event 7 Final Table.

As Vogel was getting crippled, Ari Jonisch was seen moving all-in from the button for his final 150,000 chips, only to be re-shoved on by the small blind who held [Ad][As].

Ari flopped a gut shot straight draw and turned a "double gutter" but was unable to connect to save his tournament life, bowing out in 15th place, a fantastic result for the "amateur" player, earning him just over $1,500.

We are now twenty minutes from the dinner break and three spots from our official Final Table.
