Nick Kortenber hit a snag earlier at the final table but is back near his peak for the event after eliminating John Pelton (pictured).
Kortenber opened to 100,000 in early position and Pelton min-raised to 170,000 from two seats over. Kortenber called and the flop came out Q♥6♦5♣. Kortenber checked and Pelton bet 300,000, leaving himself with 90,000 behind. Kortenber went all-in and Pelton called with A♣K♥.
The 7♣7♥ of Kortenber were ahead and no ace or king came on the river to save Pelton. Kortenber is playing 1,550,000 with William Standford and Alvin Harris the two short stacks at 700,000 each.
