David Troutman is back in control of the chip lead thanks to his elimination of Gates Harris (pictured) to bring the final table field down to eight.
Troutman opened in early position and was called by Tim Burt on his direct left and Harris in the hijack.Troutman continued for 80,000 on the K♠6♦3♣ flop and only Harris called to the A♥ turn. Troutman bet 130,000 more and Harris called again. The K♥ hit the river and Troutman slowed down.
Harris bet 225,000 and Troutman check-raised him all-in for 350,000 more. Harris called with A♣J♣ but Troutman's A♠K♣ had him crushed the whole way.
Harris earns $5,212 and Troutman is playing 3,225,000 with Kyle Cartwright a few hundred thousand behind him as the blinds go up.
