If I'm Labet personally would've thought Zhu could be making that move with anything from 10s up to QQ possibly AK
Surely you try and get some value from KK AA

Zhu has a small raise UTG Manion had just started to get involved in more pots recently, then Labet just flats, Zhu has 24mil in front there's just under 5 million already in the middle I'd definitely think he can jam with as low as 10s there just trying to take the pot down there.

The problem comes obviously when Manion shoved over the top then very real chance of aces there.

I'm not a good enough player to lay kings down in that spot, Manion is never putting you on KK with your flat call and because I'd firmly believe QQ is just as likely a hand and much more unlikely AK if Manion thinks you're not strong and is trying to isolate Zhu, obviously you're happy going up against either of them.

lol, busts 9th. Had already secured 1 million so he played for nothing today.

It's a cruel game. If he folds yesterday, he doesn't get it all in pre today, and ultimately would have survived esp. with an Ace flopping.

3 short stacks need to think about getting busy. Lynskey has 33 bigs, Zobian 19, Metalidi 16.

Next 2 pay jumps are 250k then 300k.

With blinds up, Metalidi is blinding out. Down to 9 bigs.

He'll get rockets and cop a bad beat from a bigger stack.

Manion check-called 3 streets and more specifically a river bet from Dyer with just AQ on a [J:hearts:9:spades:5:hearts:] [K:clubs:] [8:diamonds:] board o_O

He ties with AQ, he beats Q[76432], T[76432], 7[432]. 6[432], 43, 42, 32.

Sure Dyer is CL, but what does he raise with from EP that you beat? It just doesn't make sense. Check-raise the flop or fold, don't check-call every street with Ace high FFS.

He should have folded on the flop and saved himself 13,625,000 in chips.

Yeah very weird play. I think he got stubborn and was hoping to Dyer missed his flush maybe.
Zobian doubled through Dyer

Leo Margets HU in Event 73 with a 2:1 lead. Surely a woman can't win a bracelet!

Cada needed a few miracles to win in 2009. He'll need another one or two tomorrow to give himself a chance.

You gotta have some luck to win. In 2009 Cada was all-in with deuces and treys against over-pairs and flopped sets both times to survive.
