Play had slowed considerably at Table 2 until Dave "sexygee" Gent and "tonkaaaa" got involved in a huge preflop battle. Gent opened with a min-raise from middle position and "tonkaaaa" three-bet to 115,223 from the button. Action folded back to Gent, who shoved for just under 1 million, and he found out the bad news when "tonkaaaa" snap-called.
Gent tabled and needed a lot of help against his opponent's pocket aces. The board sent Gent out the door in 24th place and moved tonkaaaa near the top of the leaderboard.
