Aaron Marchand is apparently playing his first “big event” in this Grand Prix Canada, at least according to his supporters on the rail. The way this has gone for him might give him a distorted view of the realities of the tournament scene! For instance, you don’t win $50,000 every time you play…
In all seriousness, Aaron played a solid game throughout Day 2 and Day 3, and though he never appeared atop the leaderboard, he always seemed to have enough chips to work with – and that was good enough to get him to the final table.
After a short break, on the second hand to be played, Aaron open shoved from the sb and Samuel made the call.
Sam let out a bit of a gasp when he saw the flop: – this gave Aaron an open-ended draw – but Aaron left disappointed when the turn came and red river .
Samuel and Breyer are now playing heads up for the championship!
3rd place: Aaron Marchand, $50,000
