Zach Jiganti, who has sat toward the top of the chip counts for the past two days, has been eliminated from play after two unfortunate hands.
In his final hand, Donys Angelli opened with a raise to 35,000 from under the gun. Jiganti three-bet shipped from the hijack for his last 318,000 and Clayton Maguire flatted from the button. The blinds folded and Angelli tank-folded his hand.
Jiganti found that he was dominated by Maguire's queens and suddenly he was in need of improvement to stay alive. The board fell down , ensuring that Maguire's ladies would hold. Jiganti was eliminated from play and Maguire's stack increased to about 1.89 million.
