Matt Salsberg raises to 25,000 from under the gun, Gene O’Leary calls on the button, and start of day chip leader Chris Tolone calls from the big blind.
The flop comes [9s4c2c] and Tolone bets 85,000. Salsberg folds and O’Leary calls.
The turn is the [Qd]. Tolone checks, then O’Leary bets 100,000. Tolone check-raises al-in for his last 300,000 or so and O’Leary calls instantly.
Tolone has [8s9c] for a pair of nines and winces when O’Leary shows [AcQc] for top pair and the nut flush draw.
The river brings the [Kc], completing O’Leary’s flush to give him the pot. Tolone, who began the day with nearly a million chips exits the event before the final three tables are set.
Gene O’Leary – 900,000 (90 bb)
Chris Tolone – Eliminated in 34th place ($11,865)
