Adrian Piasecki opened for 150,000 under the gun with and was met with a three-bet to 340,000 by Jason Lavallee, who held in middle position. Action folded back around to Piasecki, he moved all in for 1,725,000, and Lavallee made the call.
Piasecki was knocking on elimination's door, and the flop didn't provide him much help. He needed either an eight or running straight cards to extend his tournament life, and while he wouldn't find an eight, the turn and river did complete the improbable straight. Chop it up.
