Action was folded around to Joey Boczek, who potted to 48K from the small blind into Mathyeu Provost’s big blind. Mathyeu replied with a pot re-raise to 144K. Joey called, and announced all-in on the flop, covering Mathyeu by a hair, for an effective 155K. Mathyeu called.
Joey turned 2 pairs, but Mathyeu caught up on he river, hitting trips. Joey’s remaining 16K went to Manfred on the next hand. Joey had flopped the wheel with a re-draw against Manfred’s set, which improved to a boat on running 8s.
Joey Boczek takes home $1,680 for his 6th place finish. Congratulations!
