As Antonios Roungeris was being eliminated on Table 1, Ralph Wong and Scott Blumstein were playing the biggest pot of the tournament on Table 2.
Action was picked up after Isaac Baron opened, Wong called on the button and Blumstein called in the big.
All three players checked the flop and Baron bet 80,000 after Blumstein checked the turn.
Both players called and Blumstein led for 250,000 after the completed the board. Baron got out of the way and Wong took a few moments before he shoved – for 705,000.
Blumstein went deep into the tank and burnt through his final two time extensions before he eventually called.
Wong tabled for the nuts and it was a cooler for Blumstein. He showed before cutting out chips to send across the table and he’ll now enter the final table just under the chip average.
