The cards are back in the air for the final table of the 2015 Aussie Millions LK Boutique $250,000 Challenge.
Doug Polk tops the final eight players with 1.904 million in chips, and Dan Smith will return after the break on the short stack with 286,000. Three players will need to bust before the money is reached, and it's a big, bad bubble of AU$551,000 coming up.
Below are the chip counts heading into the official final table:
Jason Mo shoved his last 275,000 or so all in from middle position and action folded to Scott Seiver, who called from the big blind.
Seiver woke up with the granddaddy of all hands, and Mo needed some luck to stay alive. The flop was as dry as could be, and the turn left Mo drawing to a ten. The river was not it, and Mo took his leave in ninth place.
With that, the final table is set. The final eight players will now take an hour break and relocate to the Exhibition Hall to play it out at the TV table.
Isaac Haxton raised to 40,000 from the hijack only to have Doug Polk three-bet to 115,000 from the cutoff. The button and blinds all folded, and then Haxton did the same.
Richard Yong, who took down the Aussie Millions AU$100,000 Challenge two days back, opened for 50,000 from early position and was met by a three-bet to 105,000 by Scott Seiver in the hijack. Action folded back to Yong, who made the call to see the flop.
Yong checked, Seiver continued for 100,000, and Yong quickly released his hand.
