After a recent double up in a previous hand, Drew Boyett tried to keep the momentum going and got his last 34,000 in the pot before the flop. Both Ron Ware and Paolo Compagno made the call and Boyett would have to do double duty to survive this all-in confrontation.
Boyett was actually not in bad shape with two live overcards against Compagno's pair of sixes in the hole, and when the flop fell he had taken a tenuous lead in the hand. The turn of changed little and Boyett would need to dodge a six, a queen, a nine, or a ten to survive.
With that, Ware's pair of nines were best and Boyett was eliminated in 13th place. Compagno fell to 130,000 after the hand while Ware vaulted to just under 600,000 in chips.
