Mike Massey - 230,000
What a turn of events. In two hands Mike Massey (Myrtle Beach, SC) crushes Michael Kiotis and knocks him out of the tournament. Massey is now the chip leader with 230,000.
In hand number 1: Massey held A♣ J♦ vs. Kiotis 6♥ 8♥. On a board of J♥ 9♥ 2♠ Kiotis jammed causing Massey to tank then finally call. Mike faded the hearts and took a huge chunk of Michael's stack.
In hand number 2 (two hands later): Massey held A-K and saw a flop of 10-A-10. Again Kiotis jammed and again Massey called with the best. Kiotis tabled A-Q and did not improve.
So just like that with a one, two punch, one Michael is out and another is on top.
Mike Massey thanks his business partner Brad Davis at Davis & Massey Insurance whose working in the office so he can afford to be out playing poker.
Closing in on the bubble as 32 remain and 27 get a min cash of $807.
