Craig Varnell

Bogdan Capitan won the first hand after the break in a battle of the blinds against Craig Varnell and both clashed again right after.

Capitan made it 100,000 to go from the button and Varnell three-bet the pot to 350,000 with 340,000 behind. Capitan gave it some thought and called. On the {A-Spades}{5-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop, Varnell instantly moved all in and Capitan took half a minute before making the call.

Craig Varnell: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Hearts}
Bogdan Capitan: {Q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}

Varnell was ahead with his pair of queens and flush draw, but Capitan had a gutshot straight draw and some live cards for two pair. The {7-Diamonds} turn and {6-Clubs} river improved Capitan to a straight and Varnell was eliminated in 16th place for $53,391.
