Fresh after his day off following his High Roller victory this week, Max Silver has returned to form in the Main Event. On a 5s 2d 3s flop, Silver was facing Chris Dowling’s shove of around 24,000. The fact that the cards weren’t already on their backs meant that a third player was making a decision, because he’d flopped the nuts with 4h 6h. It was a quick call when action came to him.
Dowling: Js 8s for the flush draw, which did not come in; Silver now has 135,000 chips, plenty with which to menace his table.
