The biggest pot of the night so far has spelled the 7th place elimination. Raymond Latinsky opened the pot with a raise to 25K, and 3 calls followed, before Manfred Gunther, the massive chip leader, decided it was a good spot for him to show his fangs. He announced pot, and slid 150K forward.
Raymond thought for some time, and he finally went all-in. He had a great hand, most likely ahead of Manfred’s range, he thought (and he was), but being pretty much tied for second in chips, it wasn’t an easy decision. Manfred made the call, and they went to the board.
The river came with a bang, filling Manfred up nicely. He now has an overwhelming lead and anyone willing to play a hand with him should be ready for full investment.
Raymond made the right play – a gutsy one – but was down on his luck. His 7th place finish is good for $1,370.
