Russell Licking continues to pick up chips near the final table and is close to 900,000 after busting Michael Connors (pictured). 

Connors opened to 75,000 in early position and Licking shoved for over 380,000 effective out of the hijack. Connors called with AK and Licking was live with J♠10♠. The J92 flop put Licking into the lead and Connors found zero help on the 7♣ turn or 10 river. 

The blinds are about to go up and the final table is two eliminations away from arriving.
