Alex Candelaria is riding a rush on Day 2 and picked up yet another big hand and eliminated Blair Hinkle in a 850,000 chip pot to move over 1,000,000.
Candelaria opened for 33,000 from the hijack and Hinkle three-bet to 100,000 from the small blind. Greg Jennings folded the big blind and Candelaria moved all in to put Hinkle at risk for 440,000 total. Hinkle called with K♣K♥ and was helpless as Candelaria showed A♣A♦.
The 7♣5♣5♦3♦9♥ board was pristine for Candelaria and he stacks up to 1,050,000 and is the overwhelming chip leader. For his run, Hinkle earns $1,557 and it is now all up to his brother Grant to carry the family load.
