Jason Rivkin had the goods earlier today when he hit a double knockout to move into the chip lead, but had to come from behind to bust Ilya Vasserman.
Rivkin opened for a standard raise in the hijack and Vasserman jammed for 296,000 more on the button. Rivkin though for a moment and called with A♠10♥ to see he was trailing the A♦J♦. The J♣8♣7♦ flop paired Vasserman and gave Rivkin a straight draw. The 9♠ turn filled Rivkin’s straight and Vasserman missed his chop outs on the river.
A few hands later, Sunny Patel moved all-in for 500,000 in the small blind with Q♠3♦ and Rivkin called with A♠8♠ Rivkin turned the nut flush and Patel went to the exits. Two eliminations from the final table, Rivkin is playing 2,500,000, narrowly trailing the chip lead of Jerry Drew.
