Manny Avila versus John Beady

Manny Avila opened the action big from the button to 650,000 and John Beady called in the big blind to see the flop. Beady put out 800,000 and Avila went deep into the tank. After a few minutes, he checked his cards, rechecked his cards, and put them in the muck.

Not a major hand but it was good enough to draw Beady near even with Avila for the lead.

Manny Avila (Eastern Poker Tour) – 6,600,000 (28 bb)
