Divkovic did claw back J-J all in vs. Hennigan’s Q-3, and had a surprise reprieve from the chopping block when Fernandez lost a classic all-in race against Divkovic, 10-10 vs. A-K. He was out in fourth, with a payday of $166,000.
Divkovic (far right) clearly elated to see Hennigan hit his A en route to felting Fernandez.
Despite his smallish stack, Divkovic made what I consider a tactical mistake when he pushed all in with A-6 versus Gillis’ A-Q. With a Q peeling off on the flop, his fate as third place finisher was sealed. He did have the consolation of a $222,429 prize, his largest live take ever.
An up-and-comer with a lot of potential––Divkovic in happier times jawing with a bemused Hennigan.
Now comes the break before the storm, with Ted Gillis holding about 6 million chips and about to face off against former WSOP bracelet winner John Hennigan and his stack of 3 million. With big blinds only at 60,000, there is still plenty more poker to play.
