|3rd) Tyler Kenney ($213,600)|
(Hand #104) Level 31: 60,000-120,000, 20,000 anteTyler Kenney min-raises from the button to 240,000, Mike Eskandari reraises from the small blind to 760,000, and Kenney tanks for nearly a minute before he moves all in for 3,535,000.
Eskandari snap-calls with 77, and Kenney turns over A2. Kenney needs to improve to stay alive.
The board comes J9539, and the pocket sevens hold up for Eskandari to win the pot and eliminate Tyler in third place.
Seat 1. Harry Arutyunyan - 3,745,000 (31 bb)
Seat 4. Tyler Kenney - Out in 3rd Place ($213,600)
