Pires (left) Collects Chips While (l-r) Sader,
Bowker, Andres & Iles Hang Around
Blinds: 8k/16k/2k ante
Jedial Pires continues to extend his chip lead by winning the blinds and antes with preflop raises.
On a hand that goes to the river, Pires check-calls the flop and turn before he and Kyle Bowker check the river. "King," says Pires who shows K 4 on a king high board.
Bowker mucks and sees his stack dwindle to 300k. He and Sina Sader are the short stacks, while Cherish Andrews and Matt Iles are a distant second to Pires 1.7 million.
