Dennis Thurman is the chip leader again at the final table with Dan Lowery having a long road in front of him to come back.
Thurman check-raised all-in on 9♦9♥5♠ flop from 300,000 to 2,300,000 effective and Lowery called off with 5♦4♥. The J♣J♠ of Thurman held a strong advantage and Lowery didn't catch a five to bust his opponent.
On an A♣6♣2♠ flop, Thurman checked, Lowery bet, and Thurman called.
Both players checked the J♣ turn and Thurman patted the 7♠ river. Lowery bet 1,080,000 and Thurman moved all-in for 5,260,000 total. A huge cooler was on Lowery when he called with Q♣4♣ only to see Thurman roll over the nuts K♣2♣.
Lowery was down to 340,000 but doubled up twice to give himself a shot with the blinds up.
Dennis Thurman - 9,100,000
Dan Lowery - 1,620,000
