Sean Grover has doubled his stack through the play in the first few levels today, most recently giving his stack a big boost by eliminating Robert Smith on table 20.
Sean opened the action with a utg raise to 1M, and Robert shoved over the top from middle position. The other players and the blinds folded and Sean made the call.
Robert got almost no help at all from the flop, and though the turn may have seemed promising, his was still a huge underdog… and the on the river confirmed the result.
Sean Grover is now playing a stack of over 18M in chips.
Robert Smith was out in 24th for $2,200, and while we were writing this post, Jean-Guillaume Duguay and William Molson were both eliminated as well (23rd and 22nd place for $2,200 each).
