We only walked up to this pot after the river was out on the board. Patrick Smith had a bet of 125,000 out in front of him behind a Bojang check. There was at least 300,000 in the pot, probably more than 350,000.
After a couple long minutes in the tank, Bojang surrendered, and he's dipped back below a million chips.
Justin McGill and Jean-Paul Delay got it all in before the flop with the latter being the shorter of the two stacks. He was ahead, though, and his had him in good shape for a double. McGill turned up , and things would improve for him in a hurry.
The board ran out , and that's the end of the day for Delay. He's off in 19th place, and we're in the middle of a redraw for the final two tables.
Jason Wheeler opened to 35,000, and Gregory Ronaldson three-bet to 85,000 from the small blind. Wheeler considered for just a few seconds, then flicked the call into the pot.
The flop brought , and Wheeler called another 80,000 from Ronaldson. That brought them to the turn, and Ronaldson loaded another bullet. He made it 180,000, but after some time in the tank, Wheeler moved all in for 275,000 on top, and that sent Ronaldson deep into the tank. Wheeler slid his chips into the middle, then laid his head on the rail to sweat it out. It would be several long minutes before Ronaldson let him off the hook, and the fold has given Wheeler an early chip boost.
Welcome back for Day 3 of Event 19, the last of the teen bracelet events still running. On the heels of an incredible night in the Rio, we're back here to hand out a couple more bracelets to deserving players.
One of those bracelets will come from this $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em event, and there's a big cash prize up top, too. More than a half-million dollars awaits the winner, and Gregg Wilkinson comes into the day with a big chip lead. David Peters, Barry Shulman, and Jason Wheeler form a dangerous chase pack, though, and it won't be an easy road to the win for any of these players.
