As quickly as he came into a pile of chips, Greg Brletich hit the rail. The hand in question came against Connor Arlia who now sits with over 2,000,000 of the 2,800,000 of the chips in play.
In his final hand, Brletich opened to 35,000 from the cutoff and received calls from Alari on the button and Habib Shahen in the big blind. The flop came down Q♥5♦2♦ and action checked to Brletich who bet 75,000. Alari was the only caller and the J♠ hit the turn. Brletich led for 125,000 this time and Alari raised the action to 325,000.
Breltich went into the tank and came out with a raise all-in for about 400,000 more. Alari snap-called with 5♥5♠ for a set to leave Brletich and his A♦Q♣ drawing dead.
Alari now holds an overwhelming chip lead over David Lipkin (600,000) and Habib Shahen (200,000) as three-handed play is underway.
