players with short stacks are looking to double up or go home. Phil Galfond finds himself in that situation when a short stack is all in for 3,450. He calls with Ac8c and is slightly ahead of the KsQd his opponent holds.
The flop is Kh9c7h, giving Galfond's opponent a pair of kings. There's always a sweat though, or at least it often appears that way, and the turn card is 10c the ultimate sweat card, the . Galfond now has the nut flush draw, an open ended-straight draw, and not to mention the three aces in the deck that would give him a better pair.

Phil Galfond - 42,500

How exciting it must be for all the players left in and they can all still dream of becoming World Champion. Nice to see Mike Matusow's name on the list of players still left in

A bit absurd that this hobby player leads in the chipcount yet a seasoned pro like Seidel already packed up and left. Honestly would surprise me if he could get on the Final Table but it seems to me he is on a roll right now.
