When 3 players were left, an ICM chop was agreed upon. $120 was left up top for the eventual winner, and the rest was divided as follows:
- Karen Beecraft – $924
- Azizul Haque – $1,140
- Michael Mannucci – $1,250
After taking 3rd place in Event 1, Azizul Haque came back this afternoon with a lot of confidence, and it sure helped him along the way. He came in 3rd again, this time outlasting 81 players! Surely he will be back for more this weekend.
Haque was doing well, until a tricky play backfired on him. He limped in from the button, letting Karen Beecraft see a flop. Beecraft led with a 40K bet, which was raised to 100K. That amount was 3bet to 200K, and Haque went all-in.
He managed to double what he had left against Michael Mannucci, but then busted when Beecraft called his all-in on flop, in a limped pot, with a monster draw:
Running trips ended his tournament. He took $1,140 for his 3rd place. An unbelievable repeat performance for Haque.
