Event 7 (Day 2)
Level 30 (40,000/80,000/10,000)Total Entries: 414
Players Remaining: 3
Chip Average: 2,800,000
The remaining three players are now on a quick 10 minute break and after one hand got Robert Campion over the chip average a few hands after the deal was reached, it's been a pretty uneventful last half hour.
That hand saw Campion get his [10h][10s] all-in pre-flop against the [Ah][Kd] of Peter Tripp in a close to 3,000,000 chip flip that would give Tripp close to 80% of the chips in play if he were to win.
It looked like he would after the [8c][9h][Ac] flop, but the [Js] turn gave Campion an open ended straight draw that he'd hit on the river as the [Qs] completed the board.
Campion would complete the massive double up to get up to 2,700,000 in chips and then he, Tripp and Joe Kosko would spend the next half hour just swapping pots back and forth, with no all-ins getting called and play being more or less very passive.
When they return though, there will only be 100 total big blinds in play as the big blind will "cost" 80,000, meaning that we should see an end to this "slow" and "uneventful" pace.
The chip counts returning from break are:
- Robert Campion - 2,600,000 (33 BB)
- Joe Kosko - 1,000,000 (13 BB)
- Peter Tripp - 4,400,000 (55 BB)
